Movie: 8: The Mormon Proposition

This sounds like a movie I have to see. I’m grabbing this partial content review from Lynna:

The following sampler from the movie “8: The Mormon Proposition” is courtesy of an ex-Mormon who viewed/reviewed the movie (sampler truncated for this post, since it was several screens long):

  • Narrator explains Mormon belief that God was once a man, become a God, had spirit children with his wives. Relates each Mormon man’s goal to become a God and have children with his wives on another planet.
  • Eagle Forum President Gayle Ruzicka defends traditional marriage between one man and one woman and says she doesn’t believe in polygamy. Upon further questioning, she admits that polygamy will be practised in heaven, but explains that polygamy is different than homosexuality because it involves children being born.
  • Senator Buttars makes his infamous black baby comments, tells the camera that gays are the greatest threat facing our nation, and compares gays to radical Islam.
  • Former BYU student recounts being drugged, undressed, and receiving shock therapy by means of electrodes fastened to his genitals.
  • Nurse at Provo mental hospital describes institutionalization of gay BYU students and the administration of corrective treatment, including brain surgery.
