Steve Martin is LDS


steve_martinThis has got to be the most classic LDS legend. The oldie, but goodie, Steve Martin is a member. Sometimes it goes on to say that he has been seen wearing a CTR ring or reading the Book of Mormon. Usually, the legend includes that he has been baptized, but keeps it secret.

This story is untrue. Steve Martin is not a member (or is super, super secretive about it for you conspiracy theorists). Several years ago, a BYU Daily Universe journalism student tried to trace this story back to its origins and did find that a missionary did baptize a Steve Martin, but it was not THAT Steve Martin.

    I served my mission at the time rumor gained popularity. The area was Hilton Head Island and we served with a Steve Martin that had recently joined the church. Hilton Head Island is a very expensive, high-end island located off South Carolina. Many famous and wealthy people have homes there and I believe someone mistakenly thought because a Steve Martin from Hilton Head joined the church, that it was the entertainer Steve Martin.
