The New York Times recently took up the topic of temple garments in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The piece focused on Idaho Falls member Sasha Piton, who is urging the church to produce softer, more comfortable and breathable garments, which the faithful wear as a private and personal reminder of their religious commitments.
Piton, who posts on Instagram under her moniker, themormonhippie, had shared her concerns about the holy underwear with her more than 25,000 followers. It apparently resonated in Latter-day Saint circles, drawing thousands of comments and private messages.
It is just one subject the Mormon millennial discusses on social media. On this week’s show, Piton talks about garments, tattoos, coffee, piercings, feminism, Heavenly Mother and other issues for young members of the Utah-based church.
