'Mormon' movie is sterile

Regarding "The Book of Mormon Movie": An ascetic lifestyle is not unusual. Nuns have been doing it for centuries, with vows of silence, chastity, servitude, etc. Sister Wixom (Readers' Forum, Sept. 20) has simply chosen a different vow, that of avoiding the R-rated movies. She inflicts "The Book of Mormon Movie" upon herself.

Like all these meaningless vows, settling for such a sterile imitation of life is hard to understand. Why settle for the crumbs that fall from the table while there is a great big cake out there?
