— HBO is defending its plans to depict a sacred Mormon temple ceremony in an upcoming episode of “Big Love.”The drama about a Utah polygamous family will show an endowment ceremony on Sunday.In a statement issued Tuesday, HBO said it did not intend to be disrespectful of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and apologized. But it says the endowment ceremony is a critical part of the “Big Love” story line.On Monday, Mormon church leaders criticized HBO for its decision to include the ceremony. Only church members in good standing can enter temples to perform or witness the sacred rites.

Can you believe that we leave in these scarey and unusual times. This is crazy to me that this is even an issue. And I dont understand why it is “critical” to show that part in the show!!! Anyway, I am greatful to be a member of the Church and all that it entales! I hope that this dilema gets resolved in a quick manor and that the endowment ceremony is not showen. This is just another thing to tie into the whole sueing temples for not letting just anybody in.
I pray that this sacred ceremony is not aired for the world to see.
