Featured on CNN**** *******www.ireport****/docs/DOC-230885 A response to the choice by producers of HBO's "Big Love" to depict portions of LDS temple ordinances. This episode of The Anglə has been featured on CNN**** via iReport**** *******www.ireport****/docs/DOC-230885 I first heard about the temple episode of "Big Love" on March 13 through an LDS Film e-mail list that I signed up for on LDSFilm****. I really wasn't too surprised by it and it certainly isn't unprecedented for HBO, their 2003 miniseries "Angels in America"--based on Tony Kushner's play--featured Mromon characters and borrowed imagery directly from Mormon theology. It also discussed LDS temple garments and even showed characters wearing them. It surprised me then, but I wasn't offended. "Angels..." is a very popular work of fiction that deals with a great number of social topics and Mormonism was just one of them. "Big Love," on the other hand (as far as I know), deals specifically with characters that identify themselves as Mormons but are living a lifestyle that is not compatible with that of members in full fellowship with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From what I could infer from the scene I watched online, one of Bill's wives apparently has a current temple recommend, hence her ability to go into the temple, but is aware that her choices may result in disciplinary action by the Church. Members who choose to practice polygamy today are excommunicated. I imagine it was just a matter of time before more details of the LDS Temple Endowment would make their way into the main stream media. Much of the narrative of the endowment ordinance has been on the internet for years and there are certainly many disgruntled former members who think nothing of disregarding covenants they made when they were still members of the Church. If "Big Love" didn't do it, we may very well have seen it in another TV series or film. i was very pleased with the Church's official response to HBO's "preemptive apology" which pretty much amounted to acknowledging that some members would be offended but the Church doesn't instigate boycotts as such actions draw more attention to the cause of those trying to illicit an angry reaction from the Church. ***********/ldsnewsroom/eng/commentary/the-publicity-dilemma Personally, I wasn't offended by it, for reasons expressed in my iReport. I prefer to remember the counsel given by David A. Bednar, an Apostle in the LDS Church, that if we become offended by something it's usually because we choose to be offended. If we simply make the conscious choice to not take offense by the sayings or actions of others, we'll live a much more peaceful life. ***********/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-646-32,00.html Orson Scott Card's National Review essay on "Big Love": *******article.nationalreview****/?q=MmJmZDFiYmVkOTdlYjVmZmNiMzhhODEwYmYzMTRlMzg=&w=MA== Another Card essay in the Mormon Times: *******www.mormontimes****/mormon_voices/orson_scott_card/?id=6685 An essay on what's sacred (in reference to "Big Love") by Terrance D.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4 trailer: ******* BATTLESHIP trailer 2012: ******* Amazing SPIDERMAN trailer 2012: ******* Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer - Official HD The end begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione go back to Hogwarts to find and destroy Voldemort's final horcruxes, but when Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint head back to Hogwarts one last time for the final showdown between good and evil wizards with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" (July 15). The adaptation of J.K. Rowling's finale to her fantasy series was split into two films, the first leaving off with last fall's cliffhanger involving the death match between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and dark Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Radcliffe provides a refresher in case anyone has forgotten where things stand. "There are two concepts that you have to understand. There are seven Horcruxes that we're tracking down. They're pieces of Voldemort's soul that we're going to kill. I'm looking for them, and there are the three Deathly Hallows. Voldemort's looking for those, and it's a race to see who can get to which ones first." Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer courtesy Warner Bros.

In 2007 Radcliffe began to branch out from the series, starring in the London and New York productions of the play Equus, and the 2011 Broadway revival of the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The Woman in Black will be his first film project following the final Harry Potter movie. Emma Watson is an English actress and model who plays Hermione Granger, one of three starring roles in the Harry Potter film series.
