I Never Cried So Much In All Me Life!
Gracie Fields sang a song about a heroine in a moving picture melodrama. One of the verses runs:
And here's a scene I'll never, ever get out of me head.
She faced the blinding snow storm and came searching through the town,
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I never cried so much in all me life
But, when she walked home through the snow with her baby upside down,
I've never cried so much in all me life.
I shared Gracie's experience when I read where Reverend John L Smith claimed to have "studied at Brigham Young University." [In Reynolds, "The Challenge of Mormonism," p. 82.
I was prepared to be suitably impressed. However, when I learned from Donroy Peterson that Smith's claim to have "studied at Brigham Young University" was nothing more than an LDS Church History Tour that lasted a measly three weeks aboard a Greyhound bus, then all my sincere adulation for the irreverent reverend crumbled into dust.
Perhaps he believed that catching the Greyhound at BYU and getting off it three weeks later on the campus of BYU is the esame as studying 'at' BYU.
When you cannot even trust a Reverend to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, then the world is coming to a pretty pass.
I laughed and laughed and laughed until I cried. And I never cried so much in all me life!
It never ceases to amaze me how Anti-Mormons will claim all kinds of bogus connections with Mormonism to make them sound as if they speak with insider knowledge and informed authority when their connections are as weak in as tenuous as the Rev Smith's!
