Given ABC's track record concerning the church, I'm sadly not surprised.

Just to add a few facts, it is a police show and there is a scene with one of the characters wearing his Temple underwear in the locker room.  The rest of the show he wears his regular uniform.

So Moksha, do you feel that showing his garments was necessary to the plot of the show or episode?  My question would simply be, was it really necessary or are the script writers not able to work around their subject?

Jesse, I have no idea if it was necessary.  That is a question for the writers of that episode.  Just want to point out that the garment is only presented in a locker room scene and that the character will not continually be clothed in Temple underwear.

 And I just want to point out that the Temple Ceremony in "Sister Wives" was only presented in what's supposed to be a Temple setting and that the characters did not continually  recite the ordinance throughout the series.
Moksha,your attempts at logic, sometimes stupefy me!  
No offense!

So we should have no locker room scenes on any show?  Or only avoid them on sjhows with LDS characters.  Do LDS not change in the locker room like everyone else? (I know I do)  Is it OK then to shiow Sikh characters changing and revealing their sacred garments but not us?  Is it OK to draw demeaning cartoons about the prophet Mohammed but not to show a character in the normal state of dress which mioght reveal the temple garment?  If you say no to all of the above you at least get points for consistency.

Shows in the forties and fifties had weren't nearly so revealing.  Or only avoid them on sjhows with LDS characters. Didn't say that either. Do LDS not change in the locker room like everyone else? (I know I do) We all go to the restroom as well, but I don't need to watch someone take a dump. Is it OK then to shiow Sikh characters changing and revealing their sacred garments but not us?  Matthew 7:12 comes to mind. Is it OK to draw demeaning cartoons about the prophet Mohammed but not to show a chainaracter in the normal state of dress which mioght reveal the temple garment? Matthew 7:12  again. If you say no to all of the above you at least get points for consistency.



 For someone claiming to be LDS you seem very ignorant. No offense.
