Couldn't even try to say it better.

"Mormons need be realistic about garments and the world. Most people who know us, know about us or think they know us are well aware of our two-T-shirt thing. Garments are not a secret anymore. They never really were.

Today, you can look them up on the Internet, see them peeking out from under regular clothing, find them left behind in Laundromats and even spot them hanging on clotheslines.

Here’s another secret — they aren’t sacred, either. Not to 99 percent of the rest of the world, they aren’t. Furthermore, you can’t make them sacred by pitching a snit whenever people don’t treat them the way you think they should."

  1. Pitching a snit is never a good reaction, especially when it's over something you want someone else to reverence more than they are. That's like screaming at someone to be quiet in the library: it doesn't demonstrate that they're sacred to you--just that you want them to be sacred to everyone else.

  2. I like this. Reminds me of cows. We eat them, other people see them as sacred. At least no one eats garments, right?

  3. Robin and Larissa - completely agree.
