This is not to complain, just asking for help from the M* audience. How do I avoid “Mormon” without being super clunky?
For example, in the past, I have published two article on the TV Show Battlestar Galactica. One was titled “Why Your Mormon Neighbor Knows More About This Show Than You Do” and the other was “Epistemology and Ontology in BSG and Mormonism.”
Now, “Why Your Neighbor who belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Knows More about this show than you do” is waaaaaaaaaaaaay to clunky of a a name. Even saying “Latter-day Saint Neighbor” is a bit too much, and it doesn’t include the name of the savior.
“Latter-day Saint theology” would also avoid the name of the savior, but “Epistemology and Ontology in BSG and the theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” is also far too long and clunky. It makes for a terrible title, especially on an academic conference program (one reason I’m not sure about Pres. Nelson’s optimism that the media will come along – “Mormon” is just too short and concise when it comes to headlines – sort of like how “Catholic” would probably stay the default even if the Pope started insisting on “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church” as the default).
Anyway, I’m at a loss, but if anyone has suggestions, I would like to hear them.
