Ron poses a false dilemma -- but it makes for a good story.

A few years ago Elder Richard G. Scott gave a general conference address 
on the topic of cultural baggage.  He indicated that cultural roots are 
and should be an important and integral part of our membership in the 
Church.  We bring with us the good things, and abandon the dross.

It seems painfully obvious to me that Church leaders are fully aware of 
these issues.  Indeed I believe there is more sensitivity and attention 
devoted to diverse cultural heritage today than I can ever remember.

In fact I have Jewish ancestors that bring a unique cultural background 
to my family, and contribute an important component of my own cultural 

BTW, I checked at Deseret Book, and found that they list five novels by 
Chiam Potok.
