The teens I see on the internet everyday are truly truly awful. The Mormon teens I met at this weekend’s Hill Cumorah Pageant were wonderful. What’s the deal?
This weekend saw the 75th annual Hill Cumorah pageant in Palmyra, New York, where thousands of Mormons gathered to reenact the founding of their religion. As McKay Coppins reports, the pageant this year was freighted with extra meaning as a Mormon candidate seeks the office of the President; meanwhile, Katie Notopoulos weighs in on what was Fab and what was Drab at the event.
Romney won’t talk religion, so the national press corps descends on the annual re-enactment. A risk and an opportunity for the church, and a confusing spectacle for the press.
Fabness and drabness coexisted peacefully at the 75th Hill Cumorah Pageant, where 750 Mormons acted out the Book of Mormon.
The Hill Cumorah Pageant is an enormous yearly reeactment of the Book of Mormon, and this teenager landed the role of the most famous Mormon. The trick? Having the hair for it.
