      Many people know this but your claim is questionable at best.
      Two names out of hundreds (one a person, one a place) in the Book of Mormon happen to share (or are similar to) names of locations which are tangentially related to a pirate.
      Now, it is up to you to prove causation.
      While I'm reluctant to give it more oxygen Here's a discussion of the claim.

        Realistically it is shrinking. Although I think they still count all the people to have left and not officially renounced, so as to claim decent membership numbers. I'm probably still included, as are a lot of my family, and haven't been near a mormon church for 20 years. And numbers will hold up pretty well because you're heavily encouraged to have a minimum of 5 kids, plenty have much more than that. But I'd hazard a guess that the outflows are greater than the inflows, when you remove people born into it.

        Even 20 years ago it was becoming get rare to see brand new adult members becoming "converted" and joining the church. Just about all of the Australian (adult) growth in numbers was from Pacific Islanders, who were already mormon, emigrating to Australia.

        Gone are the days when you had nothing but a convincing argument from a persuasive person to base your judgement on. Nowadays when the Mormons go out telling their message, you can easily do your own research into the facts. Basically the internet is responsible for the decline. Even digging up the church's own, less public, material is pretty damning.

        Like all religions, once you stray from basing your belief on nothing (faith), you'll end up on shaky ground.

        Some of it is pretty funny to look back on, like the "Book of Abraham". Now that we can translate ancient Egyptian reasonably reliably it makes for hilarious reading.

        lol

          "you're heavily encouraged to have a minimum of 5 kids"
          That's a load of rubbish.

          "But I'd hazard a guess that the outflows are greater than the inflows, when you remove people born into it."
          And yet locally in recent years I've seen vastly more new members, than members leaving.

          "Even 20 years ago it was becoming get rare to see brand new adult members becoming "converted" and joining the church. "
          And yet locally, there have been more adult baptisms in the past few years than there have been children.

          Thanks for the correction, Tuhan. It's rare I make such an oversight!

          I was under the impression that, as we become more educated and stop requiring someone else to take the blame for things we understand, more and more people leave religion as it struggles to keep up with modern society and less and less rational people join.

          The complete nonsense that the religious spew when challenged sounds like it'd be believable about 1,000 years ago but not today.
          Weakest arguments ever for something that has absolutely zero proof.

          Anyway, what little I know of the book of Mormon is hilarious at best and I can only assume that those who follow, do so for a laugh.

      •  

        Oh, let's all gather around and make fun of the religious. Sounds like a riot.
        You and Nero would have been great mates.
        Hilarious.
        Want to try aiming that mockery at other religions, or just the 'turn the other cheek' ones?

        • +3 votes

          You have to admit, religion in general is pretty funny.

          The book of Mormon is another level though.. it was only a matter of time before this musical was born!

          Everytime you ask a question that brings God and his terrible attitude into question, the answer is "He works in mysterious ways". Damn right they're mysterious!

          Imagine I used that excuse when I decided genocide was ok or when I wanted to persecute people!!

          Anyway, I mean no ill will, I just hope that people like that wake up and read actual non-fiction books one day.

    Saw this the other week in NYC, would recommend. I've spoken to a friend though, he seems to think some of its cut out for Australian audiences… anyone seen both?

    •  

      I saw it in NYC years ago and I believe it's the same and Melb a few months ago. if there was anything cut out I didn't notice. I have the CD and listened to it a few times and there is a few words different here and there, but I wouldn't say it is different at all

    What's with this $8.75 handling fee?

    Seems to be at movie theatres as well….is it just me or is this a bit ridiculous? Surely there is a valid reason but when you buy an electronic ticket why do we get charged this?

    Saw it a few months ago, courtesy of a friend with a spare ticket.

    Hilarious and very very crude.

    If you're at all sensitive about respecting religion, foul language etc then you'll struggle through this. Not me, as someone who grew up a Mormon (but is no longer), I loved it. All the theology is pretty much bang on.

    Must see.

  •  

    Wow, thanks for the share! there seems to be 50 or so seats left for those interested. not too fussed about the grand final :)

    I read the title and thought it was something Game of Thrones related (Mormont)

    Great deal! Wrong city for me unfortunately

    Anyone know of any deals going for Sydney? I read online about a ticket lottery for $40 tickets in Melb, will we get that in Syd too?

      The run is probably finishing which is why. I regularly see shows in the last few weeks. Prices are significantly cut. I can't justify $150+ for a 2 hour show.

  •  

    Great price. Hopefully I'll be able to make use of such a great offer!

    Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark.

  •  

    So excited, then took a look at seats available- either nose bleed seats or single seats if near the front.

  •  

    Thanks for the find! Seems like only a few $20 ones left

  •  

    $20 is a steal. Its a great show.

  •  

    So the 40$ tickets are right at the back in row P? Is that actually much of a deal? How much are those normally?

  •  

    Has anyone managed to get the page to load? I select 2 tickets but it doesn't load either the map or tickets on a mobile device.

  •  

    $20's are gone, only 1x$50 and 1x$80 at the far back left.

  •  

    The whole theatre is discounted! 'Premium Seats' which are usually $258 are now $140, and most other seats are $70-$90 when they are usually, $140+.

    So overall, it's a great deal to go on that day.

    •  

      Sunday afternoon show is the same, grabbed some row K seats for $96, row J is $170, row h is $280. Not many $71 tickets left so I figured I'd shell out the extra $25.

    Thanks for the post OP, grabbed three tickets at the back left for $20!

  •  

    I was lucky enough to catch it in New York a few years ago - 100% would recommend if you get the chance.

  •  

    Do it! It's awesome!

  •  

    Great, even available for the Friday show

  •  

    Saw it when it first came out, funniest show I've been to (except for Billy Connolly). Will be easy to spot the OzB section, all the folks that have sneaked their own drinks and food in!! ;)

      Me an hour ago: No Caitlyn, we don't need to sneak shit in, it was 20 bucks, just buy a damn drink.

    Great musical. Saw it in NYC in 2012. As a bonus we won cheap tickets in the daily lottery. Highly recommended!
    For those that don't know it is written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone - creators of South Park.

    No $40 tickets left for Oct 3rd or 4th.
