That Terrible 'Ted' Movie

Hmmm, I've never really met a practicing or strict social Mormon I have liked, once I got to know them. They are pretty much always willing to take care of each other financially and never willing to give an outsider an even break, if they can help it. The cultish part when it comes to non Mormon family members is obnoxious, at least among those following the leaders obediently.

Seth MacFarlane, whose $100 million contract with Fox makes him the highest paid TV writer in history, is now trying to take over the cineplex, with the same old shtick.

The movie's title is "Ted." It won its opening weekend with a $54 million gross at the box office. Clearly, MacFarlane's fans cannot consume enough of his pop-culture sewage.

"Ted" is...
