It’s easy to laugh at a caricature

For members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the idea that we are not considered Christians by so many outside our church is difficult to comprehend. Though our focus is, and always has been, Jesus Christ and His gospel, we somehow don’t fit the rules they have established. When they explain their reasons for not allowing us to be Christians, they often rely on caricature to make our beliefs seem ridiculous. With caricature you take something ordinary and distort its features to the extreme. That ordinary thing then becomes easier to laugh at.
