Mormonsploitation: it is a word we didn't know we needed until we invented it. Is this a recent example of mormonsploitation? If so, it's heartily recommended! It's the kind of book i wish someone would now write about Scientologists.

I was going to suggest Red River as an example of Hollywood's eventual demormonsploitation ... but Google is not yielding any evidence that my memory of mormons tagging along on the cattle drive is correct. Can any of MacLamity's loyal ones of readers confirm or deny that there's a black-and-white Western that pretty much starts with a mormon asking hearty cowboys to be take his fellow mormons down the trail and exploding some polygamy myths in an excellent mini-monologue.
