Mormonisms - Addressing Literalness

In the wake of rising literalness within the LDS community, the Church is proactively warning of some things that should not be taken literally. This week, The Brethren warned against literally, 'Putting one's shoulder to the wheel,' and included the following picture:

The Brethren also confirmed that:

1. Story of a man being swallowed by a whale for several days? Literal.

2. The turning of Lot's wife into salt? Yup, still literal.

Currently being debated, however, is the story of all languages coming from a Tower in Babel. The location of the Tower may have been Samaria.

More updates coming next month. Anyone want to bet on the outcome for witches and sorcerers?
