Okay, so. My sister, this past spring, decided to attend high-school prom. Not something I'd likely do, but not something with which I have any particular problem. In the process of preparing, she went out and got a dress. Again, not something I'd do, but not something to which I object to.

This fall, she decides she wants to attend the Homecoming dance. Which makes me feel like she's a bit over-danced, but what's a guy to do? Anyway, she is apparently of the opinion that she needs a brand-new, separate dress for that.

What? Okay, a suit is a suit. I'd be equally willing to wear my suit to church, to work, to court, to the White House... And a dress is pretty much equivalent to a suit, right? So, therefore, a dress is a dress. I mean, unless you get down to sundresses and that sort of thing. So if you've already got a dress, what exactly is the problem with reusing it?

Why is it that most people seem to think of us (Mormons) as non-Christians?

It seems to me that the definition of a Christian would be someone who believes that Jesus of Nazareth was Christ the Redeemer, the savior of the world, the Only Begotten Son of God the Father. These are explicitly part of our beliefs - most particularly our first and third Articles of Faith ("We believe in God the Eternal Father, and in his Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost" and "We believe that through the atonement of Christ all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel", respectively).

So what sets us apart, in their eyes, from other Christians?

You know, I really have to wonder at those people who claim that allowing public prayer (which, as I see it, comes under the "free exercise thereof" clause of the First Amendment) is tantamount to declaring a theocracy.

I also have to wonder at the people who think a theocracy is Necessarily A Bad Thing. I am not necessarily in favor of having one right here-and-now, but that doesn't mean I'd object to the concept.

I wonder why it is that most of the fanfiction I can read and like is for video games rather than, for instance, books or TV shows.

Is it because I have more tolerance for video game badfic? Is it because video games have proportionally less badfic?
