Letter: People need to stop ridiculing religion

People need to stop ridiculing religion

We have season tickets to Shea’s and this season included the musical, “The Book of Mormon.” My husband and I knew little about it until friends started telling us we may not like it. We read reviews and quickly called Shea’s and explained that as Christians, we would be offended. Shea’s was very gracious and refunded our money.

In the musical, the Mormon religion is ridiculed over and over, laughing at what Mormons do to spread their religion. I read in a review that the Christian religion is made fun of, with God’s name blasphemed and mocking the cross.

My question is: What would happen if a Broadway show was produced in a similar fashion and ridiculed the Quran and the religious practices of Islam?
