Mormons and Mormonism

I love Mormons.  I’m alarmed and bewildered by Mormonism.  With the burgeoning cohort of on-line and in-print “Ex-Mo” expositions, how can intelligent, ethically and morally principled folks remain snared by Joseph Smith Jr.’s bogus “Religion”? Methodical examination of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints extends back three-quarters of a century.  No Man … Continue reading Mormons and Mormonism

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, History and Doctrine, Quetions and Issues

I’m troubled by improbable, indeed seemingly impossible, issues in the history and doctrine of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.  My previous posts: “August 30, 2003 letter to Church President Gordon B. Hinckley,” “Swords and Spears,” “ An Apostate’s Dilemma,” “Too Big To Fai,” “ A Weighty Tome Indeed,” “Matthew 22:21” and … Continue reading Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, History and Doctrine, Quetions and Issues

My Quandary

A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorancewhen the need for illusion is great.Saul Bellow I preface this reaffirming my love and respect for Mormon people. The corpus of rationale pointing to fallacies and dearth of artifacts supporting the Book of Mormon, throws validity of Joseph Smith Jr.’s Church of Jesus Christ of … Continue reading My Quandary

Matthew 22:21

Matthew 22:21“Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are fine people.  I love my Mormon family and friends. During this fractious and divisive Presidential election, through Facebook it became evident a majority of my LDS family and friends … Continue reading Matthew 22:21

A Weighty Tome Indeed

I am puzzled that Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints General Authorities, Stake Presidents, Bishops, Ph. D.s, LL. D.s, M.D.s, professors and members, folks I admire and love, refuse to consider the plethora of troublesome “facts” and blatant impossibilities in The Book of Mormon. For a young man who tagged behind his father … Continue reading A Weighty Tome Indeed

Too Big To Fail

I considered titling this “Too Big to Fail?” But no, with billions in assets, millions tithing ten percent, and catastrophic cultural implications, like Chase Manhattan and Goldman Sacks, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is too big to fail. While fiscal failure of the Mormon church portends economic shockwaves beyond reckoning, such … Continue reading Too Big To Fail

An Apostate’s Dilemma

I face a dilemma. As you know, a dilemma involves choice between undesirable options. Mine: Hold my tongue regarding certainty that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is bogus, or speak up and risk hurting and loosing the love and respect of people I love and respect. Despite LDS and Constitutional precepts … Continue reading An Apostate’s Dilemma

Swords and Spears

Over a decade I’ve been hung-up on the dearth of physical evidence, particularly Iron Age artifacts, supporting the Book of Mormon. Recently I had a mini-enlightenment: swords and spears do not grow on trees; they do not fall as manna from Heaven. Swords and spears are made, by men. Without pretending to know more than … Continue reading Swords and Spears
