Buzzfeed Spoofs Mormon Missionaries, Comments Fill With Kindness

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The media juggernaut Buzzfeed released a video last week spoofing the lives of missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Actors dressed as missionaries filmed on the streets of Los Angeles and spoofed missionaries tracting, street contacting, and having a companion.

Warning. The following video may be considered offensive and vulgar.

While reactions to the video have been mixed by members of the Church, many have noted the amount of kindness shown in the comments from non-members discussing missionaries they have come in contact with.

In your personal experience, what is the best way to react to media outlets when they use your faith as a source of humor, sometimes appropriate, sometimes not? Let us know in the comments.
