A while back I read one blogger’s thoughts about Mormonads, and I rather believe he hit the nail on the head. He said, for instance, that “Mormonads pursue the subversion of the world. They remake it in their own image, and infuse its symbols with their own (sometimes very different) meanings. They are defiantly stodgy, unhip, and wholesome.” These are among the things that contribute to what he referred to as their “weird and transcendent genius.”
I would simply like to offer this month’s Mormonad in the New Era as a good example of what this blogger, Matt B., was talking about. I can see it being universally labeled “lame” and yet still being put up on some teenage girl’s wall with absolute sincerity and belief in its message. What do you think?
