President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: stop saying "Mormon" or "LDS Church"

I can see the Mormons (tee-hee) wanting to present a consistent brand identity, but calling the nicknames “a major victory for Satan” is… kinda diminishing Satan, isn’t it? I mean, a major victory? What’s the Adversary’s next trick, tying someone’s shoes together?


LOVED the sting in the tail of the article. Satan, you rock!


The links at the bottom are beautifully present. Have a bonus point for making me snort.


You can also read the entire speech at


Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Mormon! Hail, Eris! Hail, Discordia!


Ha! That’s only because they tried and failed to trademark Mormon, and even pretended that they did have one for a while until everyone realized that they didn’t.

(The BBC story is weak, but I’m not going to dig for my posts the last time I dug into the subject. Too recursive!)


They should’ve split the difference and made everyone write Mormon™ everywhere.


I can never seem to get over the fact that I live on a planet where people still believe in such things.


I forsee complications with that.


I don’t know, the Mormon™ Fritillary Brought to you by Pepsi® sounds pretty plausible to me (though I may be currently 9/10ths of the way through an anthology of cyberpunk short stories)


So I guess that passel of hymn-spewers is going to be known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Tabernacle Choir? That’ll fit well on marquees.

Nah, just kidding. They’ve already renamed themselves! They’re now The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. Still kind of a marquee-buster.


Jesus Christ, what a Latter-day Saint!


I call it “Bob.”


You think that’s rough? Wait til they get a load of Mormon porn.

Rule 34 wins again!


Did you just deadname a religion?


So - it’s just the Tabernacle Choir now?


Hail Sithis!


Perhaps if the trademarked EXMO and FORMO fewer people would leave the church


Does Cult work. Asking for a friend…
