    If you are right, then it is just lazy, plagiarizing "journalism"...

    Still seems something "sinister" there - especially since it took me all of 3 seconds to find the name of the Church in which these men are Elders.

    Why so many people trying to justify this "error"? Wouldn't you all be offended greatly if an article came out about one of the LDS Church's "Elders" (Apostles), yet failed to mention the name of the Church?

    What gives? Some deep need to try to give the illusion that anything and everything about Mormonism is perfect, superior, and flawless?

    a scientist; I watched the clip, and the article seems to be very close to a transcription of the film clip. in that clip, they didn't mention their religious affilation, maybe that was the reason it wasn't mentioned in the article. If so, then nothing sinister about that, wouldn't you think?

    I was delighted with this article. Regardless of religious affiliation, following God's laws will always bring great blessings. Adults and children both need role models to follow and part of the popularity of this show has to be because of the "feel good" spirit it brings to families. Thanks.

    DN has started promoting many non-LDS individuals. Just another move toward mainstream.

    Big Red,

    Still doesn't explain why the Church, for which Alan and Phil are Elders, was omitted from the story in the first place.

    Thanks for the article. Whatever is good should be sought after.

    Does the LDS Church-owned Deseret News have a policy to avoid evangelizing for other Churches?

    It is ironic that this story never mentions the Church to which the Robertson family belongs; yet, in every article where a Mormon does something noteworthy, the fact that they are members of the LDS Church is highlighted, almost ad nauseum!

    Why is that? Does the LDS Church-owned Deseret News have a policy to avoid evangelizing for other Churches?

    Will you post the information?

    Alan Robertson is an Elder in the White's Ferry Road Church of Christ.

    Why would this article (deliberately?) leave out such an important piece of information?

    This is the only reality TV we occasionally watch. Maybe some of their incidents are set up, but these people are so very real. Wonderful examples!

    Nothing about reality tv is real.

    I'm glad there are so many people willing to take a stand for doing the right thing!

    That makes me happy!
