If you truly want to understand Brady Poppinga, you need to know a bit more about him off the field. And in particular, you should understand his Mormon faith. Now, I'm no Mormon expert, but I've compiled a bit of information between his comments and online faith resources.
Brady Poppinga attended Brigham Young University, which is named for Brigham Young, the former president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The school emphasizes scripture and a strict honor code. Their mission is to "assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life." What an undertaking!
Mormons follow God and Jesus Christ. Their religion was established in the U.S. under the leadership of Joseph Smith. Today estimates are that 13.8 million people in the world adhere to the Mormon faith. Service is also a large part of the Mormon faith and most adherents take two years to help others around the world as part of a service learning goal.
So there you have it! Brady Poppinga's faith in a nutshell! (What a weird figure of speech.)
