Let's face it, someone's Mormoness is always mentioned, more so than
other religions. Whether Romney, Jimmer, Danny Ainge, Osmonds, etc,
doesn't matter, their religion gets mentioned by others, even if they
themselves don't make a big deal of it.
Of course the kid's religion is irrelevant, but it makes all of us
Mormons--the primary readership of Deseret News--giddy out of our eyeballs that
"one of our own" is receiving national attention.
DC,Magic happens when you're talented. If living "right" was
the secret, then pro sports would be pretty boring.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who understands that this kind cannot be
a Mormon at the age of 2. I guess the news paper is assuming. This kid's
religion would be as relevant as his sexual orientation...not relevant at all.
Magic happens when you live right on and off the court.
Interesting to know that a 2 year old could be cognitive enough to recognize
that he is being classified as "Mormon".Then again, when
you're 8, you have no clue the weight of the decision you're making
either, so this headline doesn't surprise me.
While I am LDS, I would not be a bit offended or put off by the mention that
such a kid was Catholic, Jew, Baptist, or Muslim! If his religion is irrelevant
to the story, the mention of it should also be non-threatening. The writers
made no effort to credit the LDS Church for his talent and the article was
published in the "Mormon Times" section of the paper. That makes his
Jasper99999....The Deseret News is a Mormon publication which should explain why
they stated that he was a Mormon. Your right, he is amazing no matter what
faith his family belongs to. But for Mormons, it is just interesting to know
that his family belongs to our church.
Not that I am Anti-Mormon, but who cares that he is Morman? He could be
Catholic, Jewish or any religion and it would still be an awsome video showing
Hey, Meadow Lark Mark....Titus also has another Aunt who is married to my
son! So this has also been a lot of fun for me! How 'bout that!!!
He should be on the Ellen Show. He is so amazing and VERY Talented. Good job
The next Jimmer? Great video, but I heard he is leaning toward Duke, after the
way Kansas and BYU have been playing lately. Ha. Ha.
I played basketball one year in school . I got fed up because every time i shot
for the basket. Some one moved it on me..
16 years from now were going to be wondering if he's signing up with BYU,
Duke, or Univ of Kansas?
Love it. There is that certain good feeling that only comes from watching a
toddler take pride in accomplishment,
Great Story. Titus has an aunt who is my daughter in law. So this is fun for
