There are some of us who aren't fans of the Osmonds, and never were. A brief
note in the paper would have been sufficient for curiosity seekers who need to
know what the celebrities are doing. I am interested in subject matter which has
value and true interest. Her marriages, tragedies, dolls, highs and lows are of
little value other than morbid curiosity regarding a has been who is trying to
recapture her youth.
Congratulations Marie and Steve! Sometimes love is better the second time
around, even with the same person. Life in the spotlight is not easy, I'm sure.
With time and maturity, perhaps both of them can handle it better now. I wish
them the best of luck, and much happiness in the future.
I wasn't aware that the DN had put out a call for guest editors. I believe a
newspaper has the right to print what it wishes, in whatever section it wishes.
Neither was I aware that the Church had put out a call for guest judges (right
on, mfk1022!). Sister Osmond and Brother Craig were married in the temple, which
means that a bishop (whom we LDS call a "judge in Israel") found each
of them worthy. I have read of Marie's atypical childhood, of her exhaustion,
depression, fainting, weight issues, heartache, and loss. I honestly can't
remember a published list of her sins (the worst I heard of her was that she was
snippy on a particular occasion), but whatever transgressions she has committed
are covered by the Atonement. If you're jealous of the attention the Osmonds
have gotten, or if you're just not a fan, perhaps the solution is not to read
articles about the Osmonds. Simple enough?
I am very happy for Marie, just don't feel that this is the proper place to have
this story. It is too commercial, there was another story, that I don't see
now, that also was about Marie, and I felt that one was very appropriate for the
LDS News link.
I am very Happy for Marie .She deserves it after the past few years she has
had.As for the comments on this page except for one that wished her well all I
can say is Now I know why she moved out of Utah.So much for being a Christian
community.You people are more judgmental than anyone!It might do you well to
keep in mind that God is the true judge of all and I am fairly certain he will
judge Marie well!as for all of you so called Christians good luck I will pray
for you.reminds me of the story of Christ in the temple with the so called
faithful leaders.as i recall Jesus judged them harshly as well.
It is a mystery why the Deseret News is devoting space to a story about Marie
Osmond. There are thousands of faithful LDS families that deserve to be
recognized for their exemplary lives. Unfortunately Marie is not among them.
Her checkered past and present are typical celebrity fodder.DN,
please shift your efforts to worthy stories. Thank you.
I'm wondering why Marie's marrying an ex husband that admittedly was not
particularly faithful the first time around is making any kind of headlines?I'll give it a year.
Does the Deseret News have a society page? SHouldn't this be there?
Someone commented about the media not giving them their privacy, Marie is not
giving herself the privacy. She is using her marriage as part of her promotion
for her new CD with Donny. And putting some of this in the LDS Church section
is a bit lame. Come on, Utah has a high percentage of LDS, if your going to put
stories in here because they are LDS, then there would be not front page news.
But not just one article about Marie or the Osmonds, two, can we say overkill
and free advertising?
Good for them. We all wish them all the happiness in the world. Temple
marriage is eternal.
