  1. I truly enjoyed your podscast! I still wonder why so many staunch Mormons think such truthful info is offensive or evil when it is not coming through the filter of a statement, declaration or essaq from the church?

  2. WONDERFUL CAST! I think you were actually very gentle. There was a talk years ago from Marvin Ashton who condemned telling lies–and THE JST QUALIFIES as telling lies.

    In Bushman’s book, I started to get the idea that JS was narcissistic. Taking other people’s work, copying it and putting it through the funnel of “my revelation from God” was a way JS had to assume leadership, pull attention to himself, and maintain the illusion of piety.

    Telling lies is not pious.

    Why the church continues to hide this information (or downplay it) baffles me.
