High Noon: Mormon Skit Draws Review

Item: Oregon high school reviews procedures after pro-Mormon skit/Jennifer Moody, Albany Democrat Herald

More Info: The skit involved students pretending to be missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaching a group of teens. Mormon missionaries work in pairs throughout the world to teach the gospel and baptize those who accept their message. Probert said the skit began with several students playing Frisbee who were then joined by Probert, who wore a sign that read, "Not Mormon Yet."

Question: Do you think the skit was offensive?
