What do Mitt Romney and Jimmer Fredette have in common?
That’s right. You guessed it.
They’re both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
As some of you may have seen, there have been quite a few debates online about Jimmer and a mission. In our opinion, it’s no one’s business but Jimmer’s and his families so drop it already. In fact, we feel confident that Jimmer will have even MORE of a positive impact for his faith with the decision he has made to pursue his talents. Enough about that though…
For Sacramento members of the LDS Church, the arrival of Jimmer is “miraculous”. In fact, there are nearly 800,000 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints living in the state of California, and many of the members in Sacramento are hoping the NBA lockout ends soon so they can show their “unwavering” support for the future Sacramento Kings point guard, Jimmer Fredette.
The Sacramento Bee reported that Fredette spoke to local members last week and gained a few more fans to his already faithful gathering.
Over the past few months Mormons like Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman, along with the Broadway musical, “The Book of Mormon” musical, have been talked about quite frequently in the media; but what other member of the LDS Faith currently has a larger following than “The Jimmer”?
Some even say that Jimmer has the potential to be put in the same class as Donny Osmond and Steve Young, both of which didn’t serve LDS missions but have been great representatives for the LDS Church.
Jimmer’s father, Al Fredette, told the Sacramento Bee that Jimmer will remain focused on his new career as well as his faith: “That’s the way he has always been.”
