Eric Hawkins Audio from “This American Life”

What Did Eric Hawkins Church PR say that was so yucky? Well there was lots. But First and Foremost he suggested the way to resolve a issue with a bishop who asks disgusting sexual questions is to sit back down with that Bishop privately and work out the problem in private with the same man who asked the sexual questions that were probing.

  1. This is horrible, rationalizing evil. Night into day, dark into light. If your job is on the line you have 2 choices –
    1- Choose the right & lose your job, family and church.
    2- Defend evil and justify it and twist to have your earthly rewards before men. “Evil is the new good!” Super VIP Free Passes from Jesus for Leaders (repentance, lying, abusing…)?
    Matt 7: 3,6-12,15-24
    Matt 15: 11-14
    Matt 23: 10-29
    Isaiah 5: 20-21
    20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

  2. The church is not able to show any remorse or wrong-doing. Its counter to what the church believes.

    If anyone were to say they made a mistake, it would have to be owned by that individual at that level–BUT NOT THE CHURCH. Why?…because any admission of guilt would open the church up to criticisms they don’t want, can’t handle, and are unable to accept.

    Its a real mess. And at multiple levels its dishonest. Organizations can be guilty of organizational sin, or mistakes that are honest. But the LDS church seems to think its plain perfect.

    HOw sad.
