Humor Can Break Down Barriers of Pride

Humor Can Break Down Barriers of Pride

“The real Book of Mormon is on my shelf, and next to it, the Book of Mormon Musical. And I'm spiritually enriched by both.”

Ask anyone who isn’t a Mormon what they know about the faith — chances are, they’ll cite something they learned from South Park or The Book of Mormon. They’ll also probably say that Mormons are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Derrick Clements has humor and infinite patience for being associated with this stereotype, and he doesn’t let it undermine the thoughtfulness or depth of his faith.
