Mormon Fairy Tales by Johnny Townsend

In these stories, we discover how the Three Nephites from the Book of Mormon cope with their frustrated sexuality, when their wives aren't immortal as they are. A deceased sinner plots to break out of Spirit Prison. An obsessive-compulsive missionary covers himself with sacred protective garments. A polygamist in 1855 Utah is ordered to take a fourth wife, when all he really wants is to be with another man. A mentally unstable woman abandoned by the Church is driven to homelessness. A same-sex couple has a wedding atop an ancient Mayan temple. A disappointed wife plots revenge when her temple worker husband sues the Church for an on-the-job injury. Aliens visiting the U.N. reveal that God really does live on the planet Kolob. In his tenth book, Johnny Townsend shows us yet again why he is "an important voice in the Mormon community."

Had to delete this without reading much of it, too graphic. NOT a good representation of a good Mormon at all.
