These illustrations from the Book of Mormon serve as a testament to the Mormon Church's commitment to the heterosexual lifestyle. Imagine, what effect such images must have on young LDS boys as they grow into manhood. It is no wonder that they become such strong warriors for heterosexuality in adulthood.
Doesn't Captain Moroni look very butch standing there holding the Banner of Heterosexual Supremacy upon which is written, "Give up your gold to buy murals defending love segregation in the Land of Zarahemla." The men below him seem to be extremely excited, perhaps even turgidly so, as they point 24 inches of long, hard steel at his Globes of Manly Secretions.
Here Ammon defends his concubines from an evil man wielding a stout and firm rod.
Two thousand "stripling warriors" march into battle wearing their Mighty Codpieces of Rigidity.
Nephi's Popeye-like forearms were so powerful, he could forge steel in one hand while kicking his brothers' asses with the other. Sure, he might look like Sly Stallone, but he whoops ass like Chuck Norris. And, uh, he's wearing a kind of kilt--it's not a skirt.
Lehi might have liked to decorate his tent with fancy gold baubles, but by God, they were heavy gold baubles that cold be used to smash a man's skull.
King Noah had the greatest forearms in all the land. They struck fear into the hearts of all who saw them. Here, Abinadi pleads with the king to spare him the indignity of violating the guy bent over behind him.
Samuel the cabin boy was so proud of his forearms he laid them out on the ship railing all day long hoping someone might compare them favorably to Nephi's.
I bet Orson Scott Card has huge forearms like that.
