Conversations gain their own lives. I was actually hoping to discuss OSC's views on how he handles his views. Whether it's OSC or any other author. I really thought he had interesting things to say.
1. He doesn't even WANT to discuss his religion via fiction because he thinks his religion is too important.
2. He has copied Mormon plot lines and story lines the way some folks have copied Homer. And not just the book of Mormon, he's also copied Shakespeare. It's not about prostletyzing.
3. He tries to be true to humanity, to his characters. He has characters say and believe what such a person really would. It's not a display of his own religious conviction in every character. He's actually gotten flack from Mormans because he's written characters who's value system are antithetical.
