Ringing My Bell

Ringing My Bell

I'll wager most Americans have no idea the Salvation Army is actually an organized religious faith that they're supporting every time they throw their loose change into one of their bell ringer's little red pots at this time of year.

Speaking of organized religion, I still can't help but wonder what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, more commonly known as Mormons, will think of the upcoming Broadway musical The Book Of Mormon. As I've previously said, I will vigorously defend the right to freedom of speech, but I have serious doubts the show's creators would ever have moved forward with a production lampooning the Islamic faith.

As for bell ringers, move your cursor over the doorknob on The Book Of Mormon's Web site and you'll hear a completely different variety. (At least no one was asking me for money, unless you count the show's tickets that start at $59.)

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Thanks for giving me cause to do more research into the Salvation Army. :) I've seen them ringing their bells my whole life, and never really knew who they were. But now I know, and, thankfully, am in no way disappointed. Hooray!

Aaaand off to research said musical, now... priorities, ya know? :P
