Sentence of the day

Teresa Nielsen Hayden on being a Mormon and then excommunicated (the full piece, originally published in Telos, is fascinating):
In my early teens I did take part in a temple ritual-baptism for the dead - that involved my getting dunked thirty times in an afternoon, in a great circular baptismal font supported on the backs of twelve life-size bronze oxen, on behalf of the inhabitants of a seventeenth-century Bavarian village; but that's another story entirely.
Monitor: Tim Worstall
