Dear Mr. Van De Merwe,
Thank you for creating both pre and post curse versions of the Laman and Lemuel LDS action figures. It makes it a lot easier for us when we go out to the reservation to preach to the Lamanites. We just get out all the figures and pretend that the light-skinned Laman one is picking on Nephi, trying to shove the Urim and Thummim up into his secret parts. Then, I do my voice of God impression, cursing Laman and Lemuel and all their descendants by darkening their skin and turning them into Indians and making them a "dark, and loathsome, and a filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations." While everyone's attention is on me, my wife, OfJoshua, makes the switch to swarthy Laman action figure.
We also do the reversal "white and delightsome" thing that the Prophet, Spencer W. Kimball talked about. We use your stripling warrior and missionary figures for that. We preach to the stripling warrior until he accepts the gospel, then we switch him out for that Norwegian-looking missionary figure.
Do you have any plans to make white and black Cains--you could put a bloody rock in the black one's hand. We could use them to explain the Curse of Cain to the Negroes.
