Mick Jagger says his music promotes teens to have sex

True (according to Gene R. Cook)

mick_jaggerA General Authority, Gene R. Cook, was sitting on an airplane next to Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger. Cook did not recognize Jagger and Mick had to show Cook a magazine with a picture of himself in it to let him know who he was. After visiting for a few minutes, Cook asked Jagger what sort of impact he thinks his music has on the world’s teens. Jagger replies, “Our music is calculated to drive the kids to sex.” He quickly added, “It’s up to them what they do. It’s not my fault. I’m just making a lot of money.”

Jagger went on to say that he had had the missionary discussions taught to him while in England. He also said that there was no God and that people should be able to do whatever they wanted.

Jagger then said loudly, so everyone could hear, that the Book of Mormon was a lie and that anyone who believed in it was a liar. Cook took out a Book of Mormon and placed it in Jagger’s lap and said, “You say it is a lie. I must have missed that part. Show me.” There was complete silence. Cook then bore his testimony and told Jagger that he was the liar and that if he didn’t change his ways, he would be held accountable by the Lord.

It is, of course, possible that Elder Cook was fooled by a Mick Jagger look-a-like or imposter, so this story cannot be confirmed 100%.

    As well-known as this story is in the LDS community, I’m confident that Mick Jagger is aware of it’s circulation; however, I have never heard of it being disputed or denied by Mick Jagger. Gene Cook is known as being an honest and credible follower of Jesus Christ. I doubt he would feel it wise to fabricate or embellish a story and jeopardize his reputation. Why would anyone go out of their way and waste their time to create the hypothetical story (that followed the actual account) who wasn’t even there, just to attempt to discredit someone they don’t even know, or whose work they are likely not even familiar with? Let Mick Jagger speak for himself. This is an old story. Mick Jagger is a big boy and should certainly be the only one to dispute it or validate it if HE chooses to. Why even assume that conversation went differently?

    Imagine you’re Mick Jagger. You’re badgered constantly by the religious community about how your music is promiscuous, devilish, a terrible influence on children, etc. You’re sitting on the plane headed to a concert. You’re tired, thinking about logistics for your tour. An old man strikes up a conversation. You realize that he’s very conservative and religious, and is probably trying to convert you rather than have a conversation without ulterior motives. He fails to recognize you, one of the greatest rock personalities of all time. So you decide to have a bit of fun with him.

    “Yeah, our music is *designed* to get kids to have sex. As much as possible. Sex sex sex, man. I’m just *rolling* in the dough, my friend. You should try it.” you say. The old man looks at you in horror as you confirm all of his suspicions. He doesn’t realize you’re joking, so you dial it back a bit and get serious, saying, “Your missionary friends tried to convert me in England, but I don’t want to live by those rules. I don’t think there’s a god, and people should do whatever they want as long as they don’t hurt anyone.” You’re just telling this old man to bugger off, stop telling people what to do when they’re not doing anything wrong.

    The old man doesn’t give up, so you decide you’ve had enough of him. You turn to the guy next to you and say, “Get a load of this religious tightwad. His book is nonsense and anyone who believes that they’re going to hell for drinking coffee is full of sh*t.” The old man has the expression of someone being burned on a cross, and says, “You say it is a lie. I must have missed that part. Show me.” and puts the book on your lap. Mick rolls his eyes and declines to respond, realizing it’s hard to have fun with someone who is so dense. Cook then bears his testimony and tells you that you are the liar and that if you don’t change your ways, you will be held accountable by the Lord.

    “Whatever you say, old man.” You groan, then lean your head back and close your eyes so he stops talking to you. Then this guy takes this story as if he was stoned and spreads it to all his religious friends, showing them how evil the world outside their bible study and family home evening is, giving them more reason to cough up 10% of their income and stay away from icky icky Mick Jagger. Then you go on to lead a successful career, not letting yourself be tied down by the beliefs of one in thousands of churches.

    I have no proof that this was the way it happened, but knowing how many apostles have been caught for fabricating stories, how do we know Cook isn’t lying or embellishing? If it happened, I highly doubt Mick Jagger was floored by a cranky old geezer trying to push his religion on strangers.

    I think Joe Taylor is right: this has all the hallmarks of a Paul H. Dunn-style LDS fabrication. Does anyone know about the guy Gene Cook? We know that Stones enthusiasts can pinpoint Mick’s geolocation by date. When did Gene R. Cook say it – The Conversation – happened?

    You have to be both severely retarded and extremely naive to believe this story cooked up by Cook. Mick Jagger never did travel alone, never did fly “coach” with the masses, and was way to smart to get into a deep conversation about religion with some old guy he didn’t know. Just like with Paul Dunn, for some reason some “leaders” seem to feel the necessity to fabricate wild renditions of things in order to duly impress their audiences, and make themselves sound like true messengers of the Lord. Amazing that anyone is dumb enough to swallow stuff like this, but it kinda goes into the same category as Dallin Oaks and Boyd Packer saying that the way to gain or strengthen a testimony is to BEAR your testimony a lot; the idea is, if you say something is true often enough, eventually you’ll hopefully have even yourself convinced, and that may be what Gene R. Cook has done with his own head.

      The story does not confirm where they were seated. Further, since you claim anyone who believes this happened is retarded/naive, you make assumptions while failing to back up your own claim that Jagger never flew coach and assumed again how Jagger would behave on a flight. I’m not claiming it happened or didn’t. I’m just saying your whole premise here is argument of assumption and that negates your point.
