The LDS Church’s Exclusive History


utah05172015

This week’s cartoon for The Independent in St. George, Utah.

The church is currently threatening to excommunicate members who are gay. I was wondering how well they’ll look in history for this decision. Considering they didn’t allow black members into the priesthood until 1978, and something they resisted heavily before then, it seems to me they don’t learn from history. It’s like they’re saying “yeah, we were wrong that one time and though this is the exact same thing it’s not the exact same thing.” Good luck with that.

Here’s the rough. You’ll notice I made a few changes upon editors’ advice.
