New York Post columnist ..., 13 May 2012 [cached]
New York Post columnist Maureen Callahan recently tried to explain to her readers the ecclesiastical implications for Mitt and Ann Romney and their activity in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints if the family ends up living in the White House.
Callahan cited several sources in her column, although there is nothing officially from the LDS Church. Too bad. Even if she had just gone to the church's Newsroom website, specifically prepared as a media resource, she might have avoided some glaring misrepresentations of LDS Church doctrine, policy, practice and procedure.
For example: Callahan wrote: "There are 136 Mormon temples in the world, though most members worship at one of the thousands of smaller churches ... " She erred by suggesting LDS temples and meetinghouses are functionally interchangable, going so far as to say that "there are rooms for Sunday services" in the temples - which is simply not true. In fact, LDS temples are closed on Sundays. On the Newsroom website Callahan would have found articles explaining Mormon worship services and the respective purposes of temples and chapels.
"Sunday services last three hours, and begin with the hour-long 'sacrament,' their version of communion, with water swapped in for wine," Callahan wrote. "That's followed by another hour of sermons, delivered by rotating congregants, and a third hour in which men and women split up to pray and converse in small groups. Close, but not quite, as Newsroom articles on how Mormons worship and what to expect at an LDS worship service would have clarified.
Callahan speculated that if Mitt Romney is elected president, he would "attend the same chapel as Harry Reid , located in a leafy, well-to-do suburb of Maryland, a 20-minute drive from Capitol Hill.
Callahan wrote about going to the Washington D.C. Temple Visitors Center, talking to young female missionaries who "wear calf-length skirts, flat shoes and an indefatigable air of energized piety. Then she added: "Less than two hours after my visit - despite giving staffers only my first name and filling out no paperwork - I was startled to get a voicemail on my cell phone from someone identifying himself as a prophet, saying that he'd like to 'start interceding for your life' and asking me to call an 800 number to join a prayer circle. Callahan blithely linked the two events, inferring that the phone call came as a result of her visit to the visitor's center. The Newsroom article on the LDS missionary program would have told her that missionaries are referred to as "elder" and sister," not "prophet," and that their work has nothing to do with "interceding for your life" or organizing "prayer circles.
Third, the inaccurate descriptions of LDS worship and doctrine by Callahan. The LDS worship lifestyle is certainly a relative unknown and I wouldn't expect a nonmember to be very accurate. But such inaccuracies, especially in the media, can give rise to inaccurate perception.
A link to Maureen Callahan's four page article is found in the D-News article I link to and here:
Most first names, including Maureen, are common enough that it is virtually impossible to link a first name only to a specific individual.
I sent a letter listing some of the numerous inaccuracies in the article, stating that if Ms. Callahan would have bothered to take just a few minutes to do some research on the OFFICIAL LDS website (, that she could have written an article that was more accurate.
My comment was that if Ms. Callahan had utilized the Church's website, she would have had information on the difference between a regular meetinghouse and a Temple. In her article she talked about "Sunday Services" being held in certain rooms of the temple, some with mirrors. I pointed out that ALL LDS temples are closed on Sundays, and that regular Sunday services are NEVER held in the temple. And had she exercised journalistic integrity, she would have done just a little research and hence not made such misleading errors in her article.
Anyway, I probably should have just let it pass... but I get so tired of people like her who spew forth these erroneous statements when just a few clicks of the mouse would have taken her to accurate information for her article. Instead she wrote with a tone and enough errors to make us sound weird.
