Classic LDS”isms”

Don - May 15, 2008

I was thinking about how many things I was told growing up that I told my children. Or things they said that I said. Or things I did that they did. Things that are classic LDS. LikeI was told I (my generation) was saved to the last days…we were a chosen generation.

Or I always told my friends “I don’t …..because it’s against my religion.”

Or I can’t play outside on Sundays. Or I can’t do that on Monday because of Family Home Evening.

How about “Johnny Lingo”…now that’s classic!

  3. I wasn’t raised LDS, so I immediately think of the myths. “Mormons own Coke.”

  4. When asked “Do you want to bet?” we would quickly reply “Mormons don’t bet.”

    Also, stories about an unnamed stranger showing up to fix your flat tire, obviously he was one the three Nephites.

  6. Q.Have you seen that movie yet?
    A.What’s it rated?

    No effort is made to find anything out about the film other than a subjective rating…

  7. It’s not necessarily an LDSism but my father always said, and still does, that “with every right comes a responsibility.” I’ve told thaqt to my four sons more than they wanted to hear.
