Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

What...the actual...Fluff!?

"Hey guys! My buddy Monhonri got a new drone; let's get the choir kids together and go on a hike up to this meadow. Also, I'm going to do some cool video editing so I can see myself singing with myself as an army of clones! How neat will that be?!"

This reminds me of Mormon culture in general.

Lots of bravado and heroic images. Then lackluster actualities.

Thinking of Zions Camp heading to Missouri to whip those gentile butts and then chickening out when they get there and sending everyone back to Ohio without leadership. Joseph staying behind. Wasted effort.

Or the half-hearted, self-interested rescue effort for the Willy/Martin handcart companies, which is later blown up into a big heroic myth that deifies Brigham Young.

Can't wait to join that army.......we can sing the enemy to death.

Peter Hollens is not LDS. He and his wife actually publicly stated this when they were invited to perform with the MoTab and other LDS artists a few years ago for a Christmas Video.

Additionally, golden-voiced Malukah is not actually a Lamanite. Not sure about Heilung.
