Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints know how and when to take life seriously. Dress us in a white shirt and tie or a skirt and sit us in a pew and—once we hit about 12 or 13 anyway—we can sit through the solemnity of talks and enrichment meetings like possibly no other people on Earth.
I mean, staying happy and positive through 3 hours of church every Sunday? Who does that?
Lately, though, the world has had the privilege of witnessing another side to the “Mormons” that rarely emerged outside of our culture before the advent of mass communication and social media.
We are a self-proclaimed “peculiar people,” and perhaps nowhere is that more evident than in our status updates.
Put any Latter-day Saint on Facebook for an hour, and even the fiercest disciple of Jesus Christ will devolve into a steady stream of punny hashtags and “angry cat” memes.
In honor of those who proudly disperse Church-related quips and the inside jokes of “Mormonism” for all their non-LDS friends to frown and scratch their heads over, here are 8 hilarious Mormon Facebook posts courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Mormons.
