  1. This came across my computer today. https://utahvalley360.com/2018/01/31/byu-basketball-responds-gonzaga-administrators-discouraging-students-dressing-lds-missionaries/ https://www.gonzagabulletin.com/sports/article_def92928-05eb-11e8-aa50-3b73aab673dc.html I am not quite sure what to make of it myself. Part of me applauds GU's administration for being sensitive to the possibility of religious persecution (even if the BYU basketball team does not find this that offensive). I am reminded of a BYU - Utah football game I attended at Rice-Eccles where a BYU fan shouted something about "taking down the Native Americans" that felt like it crossed a line. (I recognize that this anecdote introduces a racial element that can be especially sensitive in modern culture). Dressing up like LDS missionaries is not racial, but does it cross a line between " trying to create an awesome environment where there is a sense for our student athletes and hostility towards the opponents so they are uncomfortable in their environment. " -- (Gonzaga Bulletin) and real religious persecution? My impression is that the GU administration is taking this more seriously than we as LDS are. Anybody have thoughts?
