Pres Nelson's BYU Speech Today

Just got done listening to the much heralded address of President Nelson on YouTube. It was a shocker. He frames his talk as teaching five "truths" the Lord has inspired him to tell the young adults. But it is clear this is an attempt to defend not only the 2015 Policy of Exclusion, but also its rev...

Re: Request to RFM and Bill Reel - Episode on Mosaic of Problematic Mormon History

This sounds like a great idea, though somewhat overwhelming at present. Just put up a new podcast (in addition to one from last Sunday) dealing with Kwaku the youthful Mormon apologist. Wrapping up things here at the office before flying out to Utah for my presentation at Sunstone Friday afternoon. ...

Kwaku the Deceiver

I put up a podcast title "Kwaku the Deceiver" last Sunday. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2019/07/radio-free-mormon-79-kwaku-the-deceiver/ It has ignited such a firestorm of controversy on Bill Reel's FB page, among other places, that I put out a new special edition podcast just now responding ...

A new Radio Free Mormon podcast went up yesterday dealing with this issue. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2019/06/radio-free-mormon-073-was-the-1835-first-vision-account-suppressed/ I had to do a lot of digging in the Joseph Smith Papers Project, among other sources, but eventually think I may ...

The Artful Dodger of Mormon Apologetics

New RFM podcast just went up yesterday. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2019/06/radio-free-mormon-069-dcp-artful-dodger/ It deals with Daniel C. Peterson's statement that there has been "no suppression" of the First Vision accounts. Amazingly, I just found out that after my podcast went up, Dani...

Re: Bruce Porter, Apologist Fireside

These hieroglyphics were apparently the original endowment and thus was so profoundly sacred that the church and the high level apologists don't bring it up. My mother-in-law excitedly showed it to me. I think I disappointed her when I asked if any non-church Egyptologists had examined it and provi...

Re: RFM Mormon Apologetic Lecture Series

Consiglieri, my first exposure to you was when I heard you doing the apologist thing on a podcast, but I can't remember what podcast. It was when I was still trying really hard to believe, so I enjoyed your bullseyes. I suspect that if I had heard it a couple of years later I might have thought of ...

Hi, Kellan Hatch here, Sandy Willow Creek 7th Ward.

Re: Nice Chat with SCMC Member Today

The new podcast is up regarding the SCMC!

https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/201 ... -the-lord/

I decided to call it, "Spying for the Lord."

Weird Alma was kind enough to let me use one of his songs to close with.

It is dynamite!

Early this morning I was contacted by Bill Reel advising me that there is a teenager (about 18) who listens to the podc...

Re: New RFM podcast on Nelson's LGBT flip-flop is really good stuff

So glad you liked it.

The stars really came into alignment for this podcast.

I think it may be the best podcast I've ever done.

(Which may or may not be saying something depending on your point of view.)
