Does 'Book Of Mormon' Mock Religion With Affection Or Disrespect?

The wildly popular musical "The Book of Mormon" has opened in the Valley this week.

It was critically acclaimed, and fans were impatiently awaiting its arrival. Despite its popularity, the show has also been very controversial. Some have wondered whether it makes fun of Mormons in an affectionate or a disrespectful way.

Holly Welker, who is editing a collection of writings about the musical, talked about the issue.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
