Today we get in a metaphorical hot air balloon and rise up to look at the 20,000 foot view of the culture of abuse within Mormonism at the present moment. We use three issues to demonstrate that the Mormon Church has exercised unrighteous dominion in three areas. We look at Sam Young’s effort to eliminate One on One interviews and questions of a sexual nature to the youth of the Church to show that the Church desires to protect its ability to shame and distort healthy boundaries of members of the Church as young as seven years old. We also utilize McKenna Denson’s case against the Church to show the lengths the Church will go to protect its own and to cover up the abuse and trauma of others. Lastly we look at the Church’s political influence over law enforcement, legislators, and the judicial system inside Utah. Once you take the 20,000 ft view of these issues you begin to sense the deep unhealthiness that exists with the LDS Church in its abuse over members and its ability to utilize Utah government to cover up and shield itself from accountability from said abuse you begin to see the urgency of why things have to change.

I recently learned that there is an important Hebrew idiom in Matthew 5:21-22
21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
To get a better understanding of it please watch a section of this video Understanding the Difficult Words of Yeshua from 38m35s to 49m59s. Here are two of the most important statements from it.
Don’t question somebody else’s relationship with God. If you do you are making yourself god.
You should not accuse someone of being separated from God because that is not up to you.
When a bishop says that we need their help to know if and when God has forgiven us, he is questioning our relationship with God, he is saying we are not capable of hearing God’s voice even after He has forgiven us. Something we should remember is that Cain talked with God after he slew Able. Which is questioning our relationship with God even when we are clean, possibily to the point of being worse than Cain’s. This is one of the things that once we understand this idiom it is saying not to do.
The bishop is doing the same thing when he interviews boys or men to decide if they are worthy to progress through the priesthood and women as they progress also, sorry I don’t know the best word for it I didn’t grow up as a girl.
Although there is a statute of limitation in the state courts, there are no scriptures for a statute of limitations when a sin or a crime was committed in church courts, and since we are to use “[God’s] SCRIPTURES for a LAW” and this “LAW to GOVERN [God’s] church” D&C 42:59, I propose that McKenna Denson‘s rapist be put on trial in a church court using God’s laws to govern it and not man’s policies found in the Church Handbook of Instructions. This is assuming that McKenna is willing to be one of the multiple witnesses required, which considering she has continually tried to have this taken care of through the years, I have no doubt she is willing to come forward as a witness at a real church court according to God’s words. I personally know of no other witnesses but am confident that McKenna or someone else can find one other witness. I suggest if we want to root out this wickedness from the church we need to do this and sadly to so many others, as commanded in D&C 42:79-93, D&C 107:68-78 and many others we have looked at.
Has not Sam testified of the wrongs of what have occurred from asking CHILDREN sexually explicate questions? Yea, he has boldly, and what was the LDS / Brighamite church done in response, they want to cast him out, and have said Sam Young is of the Devil and will not get back in his place where he belongs and we need to remove him from our ranks. All while at the same time protecting the one on the right of the picture. Who had his books sell in Deseret Book until recently as the LDS / Brighamite church trying to hide or be secret about what is going on. I have never read any of his books, but I can speculate it would of had things that mostly tickled peoples ears, especially considering he has not had the baptism of fire or if he once did he has lost it because of his sins and crimes against God and the people. A repentant man will confess of his sins, not hide behind the law or lawyers. Now also take a look at which man the LDS / Brighamite church is supporting and which one they are forsaking. To me this is a very dirty rotten fruit of theirs.
Just like King Noah, Brigham Young did not want to give up gov power just like the LDS church does not want to now.
Follow the Leader telling us that only He is authorized to lead you to Jesus (1 Nephi 8: 4-9) when the leader is following the other brother’s plan all along (“Obey Us! Don’t question Us! The debate is over!”)?
“Evil is the new good!” Isaiah 5: 20-21 Or, should we just “Stop it!”? Stop justifying, rationalizing, bullying and coercing/forcing goodness? “Doubt your Doubts,” that “lie upon lie and decept upon decept” might be Truly of Christ after all: Isaiah 5: 20-21
“Obey Us! Don’t question Us! The debate is over!” are the mantras of Marxism and Satanism, the other brother’s clear plan, done in His name – Matt 7: 20-24.
Jesus’ bullies just don’t fly with Him. What should we see and think when Anointed Leaders teach us to bully right in GenCon? I used to not be able to them doing this (“Because it’s for Christ!”). As Christ and Isaiah said, we don’t have “eyes to see or ears to hear, His Words first, or at all, drowned out by the voices of the lawyers, scribes and Pharisees?
Truly “Following Jesus” can only be had through truly following Jesus’ real Law of Common Consent/Dissent, as a rudder, corrective measure to get back on course toward Him. corecting course can not be done by coercing “consent,” bullying, threatening, shaming and abusing the flock of sheeple into a perverted version of His Law into “the Law of Common Coercion,” which is really and truly Satan’s Plan after all (the glory to Them for saving us) and done in His name (Matt 7 & Matt 23 & Ether 8 & …..).
Why are we are still prohibited by the Holy Them (Matt 7: 15-24 & Matt 23: 10-29) from seeing, hearing, questioning and discussing and dissenting (all as He commanded) from the many things done in His name which are Truly Not of Him? Then it can not be His church if we don’t follow Him first, Sustain Him first?
Nor have we taken upon us His name in any way but have denied, rejected and cast Him out: (Matt 7: 20-24 and Alma 31: 12-29).
