Someone asked us; What are Mormons going to do now that the “Mormon Moment” is over? We’re not quite sure what those who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints actually thought the Mormon Moment was. To us the Mormon Moment was a catchy way of saying that Mormon topics were trending, and trend they did; on Google, Yahoo, the news, media, press, online, at work, at home and at play.
Other than experiencing along with the rest of the world our LDS faith being thrust into the lime-light, we don’t really think it changed much of the day-to-day aspects of life for most Mormons. The Mormon Moment wasn’t a job was it, cause if so, we are owed some back wages!
Now that the presidential election is over and Governor Romney has said his gracious farewell, the press is letting everyone know that the Mormon Moment is over. So what will the Mormons do?
If you’re Governor Romney or the Mormons who voted for him, some of us will be sad at first, but not for long. Mormons are a people filled with faith and hope. Y’all we have survived an extermination order, a pioneer trek to the desert and like Brotha Romney said in his gratitude-filled concession speech, we know how to pray. P. Diddy said: “Can’t nobody take my pride, can’t nobody hold me down, oh no, I got to keep on movin’!” And that’s how the Mormons roll!
We will make Jell-o and some of us will put carrots in it. Don’t judge us, we were doing it before the Mormon Moment, during the Mormon Moment and we sho ain’t stoppin’ now.
