Bring this to the dinner table.

As most of our readers know, Aubrey and I are both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Over many a Mormon dinner table, it's always a favorite topic of conversation to make up a list of whose-who of Mormons (it was always that pesky Steve Martin.  is he? isn't he? I'm gonna go with isn't).  I've long known that Brandon Flowers, lead singer of The Killers was raised as a Latter-day Saint, but I'd always assumed that, being in the business he's in, his religious roots had withered and gone the way of the world.

Turns out I was wrong.

So, next time the whose-who of Mormon conversation comes up, feel free to bring this one to the dinner table.


  1. Love, love, love this. I showed it to my boys...errr, especially the youngest. I want him to understand that the church is not's full of guidance and direction. It's wonderful to have an example like Brandon Flowers. Thank you, thank you Whit for putting this on here so I help my sons see who you can be and still be a "Mormon".

  2. Totally did not know he was Mormon, but how cool is that?! I love what he had to say about "out-growing" the church. Thanks for sharing Whit.
