Re: Why go to a "Membership Council?"

I could be wrong about this, but I thought at some point in the past the Church had formulated guidelines to protect the rights of those undergoing the destructive procedure of excommunication. Now it feels like Juliann Reynolds explaining how BYU can do anything it wants, "because it's private". No...

Re: Did Netasha Helfer-Parker get Exed?

For future excommunications of this sort, HQ should just hold a short press conference and announce it. Spare the participants the bother and expense of these mock in absentia proceedings.

However, wouldn’t it be ironic if John was funding this through backroom deals? You know, to create buzz around his own brand?
Sort of like Jesus staging that whole "Cross on Cavalry" thing? ;)

Re: Kwaku, FAIRMomon, and terminating Dehlin

Kwaku has a brand new video out called “ The End of John Dehlin .” Not sure if some new Mormon group is bankrolling this character assassination video or if it one of the usual suspects just doing a clandestine end-run around after they had been told to knock it off and act in a disciple of Jesus ma...

Paragraph 4 is amazing. Summary: "We value diversity of opinion in matters of doctrine and belief, as long as you keep it to yourself."
I think of it as a warning: "Suffer in silence or else".

Re: New Tomb for Joseph Smith discovered

Wonder what the LDS apologetic response to this discovery will be? Most likely denial and perhaps suggesting it was something else, like a storeroom for whiskey in anticipation of prohibition, still many years away. It might take a darker turn with an ad hominem attack on the discoverer. Perhaps sug...

Re: Is Dallin Oaks the worst of the current leaders?

Didn’t Oaks run the surveillance program to trap homosexual students at BYU in the late 70’s? “We are not going to stand for solicitation of sexual acts—homosexual or heterosexual—on this campus and among its students. We ask Security to be especially watchful for that kind of crime”.[10] And was i...

Some of the Brethren such as Elder Cook and Elder Bednar have not been accorded the same level of speaking opportunities as President Oaks.

Re: Did Netasha Helfer-Parker get Exed?

Bad deeds are best done behind closed doors by gentlemen dressed in suits with BYU ties. There apparently are no news stories on this that have appeared on Google.

This meeting was a mere formality. The decision had already been made at Church HQ.

Outer Darkness is wise to this. They will probably demand to pat her down as she enters the courtroom.
