Judging by the number of people who find my blog by Googling “Is Jonathan Jones a Mormon?” I thought I’d let you read this for yourself.
Jonathan Jones ponders “Am I a Mormon?”
The most reliable source of information is Instagram.

Mormon or not, his music rocks. Here’s a song from one of his more recent solo albums, which might help answer questions about his religion.
If you like his music, head over to iTunes and check him out. You can also check out the band We Shot the Moon of which he is part.
Facebook has been abuzz lately because BYU-I banned skinny jeans. Even Jonathan Jones had something to say about it. When I hung out with Jonathan back stage (I know, right) a few years ago he mention Rexburg (i.e., BYU-I) is one of his favorite places to perform.

Students were encouraged to have a visit with their Heavenly Father regarding their modesty. I’m okay with the ban because the ban on skinny jeans, turns out, wasn’t really a ban, and let’s be honest: a lot of amusing things have been said and created in response to the commotion. Here are some of my favorites.
This one is from Stan.

The only justification needed to ban skinny jeans.
And this one from… the testing center…? I’m not sure where it came from but it’s been distributed widely on Facebook.
"...will you please go home and prayerfully visit with your Father in Heaven and recommit to...abide by the Honor Code"?
On a serious note, I find it interesting that none of the new reports have indicated whether men are also being kicked out of testing centers for wearing pants that are too tight for God. Perhaps this is another manifestation of sexism at BYU? As one blogger points out, women shouldn’t be held accountable for the thoughts men have (when they see BYU-I girls wearing skinny jeans).
