    Right. These guys are the priests preparing to visit the hermit brother funk.

    I'm offended, but not shocked. This isn't out of character and is part of the broader issue at the UofU in terms of taking light things that are sacred to others.

    I'm not offended. I'm more (self-righteously) amused. Much like Trump's lockerroom talk, or a monkey throwing it's own sh** at someone watching it at the zoo, a Ute is going to do, what a Ute is going to do. What I miss is the ALUF's defense/rationalization that this is unique or unusual behavior, when all evidence points to the contrary.

    Speaking of ALUF's: One of my favorites, just made me chuckle out loud. Well done, Dwight.

    I'm not offended or shocked. People do that stuff all the time. Virgin Mary bongs, sexy nun Halloween costumes, etc. They're trying to be funny and it's harmless. I'll take the irreverent Mo-hating Ute fan over an ALUF any day. They at least have a consistent ethos. Much more respectable than someone who turns their back on the university owned, operated and maintained by their religion. That said, they both suck and deserve hell.

    Look, by any measure it is offensive. In fact, the whole point is to BE offensive. That IS the punch line. It may not be worth responding to. It may even be wryly amusing to some, but if you think it is not offensive then you really don't get it.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    I agree the whole intent is to be shocking and offensive. I was simply not surprised that Moliere was one who took offense. YOhio's response is the most sensible one, imo.

    This raises an interesting question. Which is more loathsome: prog-mos or ALUFs?

    Discuss.

    Progmos are the Himalayan Pink Salt of the earth.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    Woot

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    ALUF is way worse, but especially a TBM ALUF. A TBM ALUF is someone who pounds doors, raises money and spends months campaigning for Prop8 then later mocks BYU because people hate the school because of LDS support of Prop8. That's as lauthsome as it gets.

    ProgMo's aren't loathsome. They're sometimes annoying and pretentious, but they come from a good place. They're just not as cool as a JackMormon and a tad cooler than a TBM.

    it just doesn't make any sense to me. like, you sustain people you believe to be divinely inspired, whose judgment and guidance you trust enough to pledge lots of time and 10% of your increase, but when those people see fit to devote resources that could otherwise be devoted to other things like missionary work or feeding the poor, to byu because they believe it's a valuable way to move the work forward, they're not credible in that respect? sorry la ute, you don't get to have it both ways.

    Nice.

    Say what you want about the tenets of irreverent Mo-hating Ute fans, at least they have an ethos.

    Approaching 100% rapidly. Hell, even Moliere has bought into "the scriptures are true, but not accurate" trope.

    I will never be a prog-mo. In a way I hope they are successful though because any guilt I feel over not attending all my meetings, not holding a TR, etc. will go away.

    Uh, careful. That's how they get you. First you root for them to win, then exalt in their success at the expense of your own team, then you are attending games in their stadium because "they have a better atmosphere", then you don't renew your season tickets because of the crappy home schedule, then you have "issues" with the honor code, and BAM; before you know it, you are a prog-mo.
