I've believed in some pretty silly things in the course of my life but there are some things- some organised bodies of belief- that are just too silly even for me.
And Mormonism is one of them. Its prophet? Clearly a con-artist. Its scriptures? Mark Twain called them "chloroform in print".
And isn't there something about never taking off your underwear? Or is that the Jehovah's Witnesses? I get those two mixed up.
You gotta read up around your beliefs. You gotta ask questions.
And if you're in your mid-twenties and you've seen a bit of the world beyond Utah and you still believe in the angel Moroni and the golden tablets and the green spectacles, it can only mean you're a bit of a fool.
I don't mean unintelligent. I mean intellectually incurious.
Why should I want to engage with an artist who is intellectually incurious?
I feel the same way about all those Hollywood stars who are into Scientology. Travolta, Cruise: I avoid their films.
I quite liked Hot Fuss, but I think I'll be giving the latest album a miss.
