    Smac, are you okay with the references I provided to your call for references regarding the in-fighting with LDS leadership over blacks and the priesthood? I didn’t see a response and wanted to make sure.

  3. I don't know Smac, I can't really attribute anything to a real person, only a message board name. If I say anything that upsets anyone, I can erase. I don't want to deter from the discussion. I am not here to bring down any poster. I've been a member of this board for around a decade, lurker previously, and a member of quite a few other LDS oriented boards. I know many people in real life from these boards, and I am quite a nice person. So if my delivery sucked in a couple posts, let me know and I will immediately delete. Thx.

    Let's stay with contention within leadership. Membership contention isn't required, that is readily found, hit the Genesis group if you need a run of that info. I don't have the Prince book in front me, and won't for a few days. Of course I could just buy an electronic version, but there's no need, btw below isa link for you to purchase Greg's book and show support. Luckily, his book isn't needed, I do have source's to support my claim, from The Greg Prince himself and already linked this to you before, but you chose not to read. The link is below. In the linked article, pages 148, 149, 150, and on and on, address the idea of contention within leadership. Here are quotes below (p. 149, 151), Here is a quote, about press leaking the change and the discord, https://dialoguejournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Dialogue_V35N01_157.pdf https://www.amazon.com/David-McKay-Rise-Modern-Mormonism/dp/0874808227

    Totally understand, I have no pull either. Yeah, the stats used to determine membership numbers, activity, etc. are near impossible to obtain.

    What particular claim from above do you want me to get sources for, please? Is it that there was contention within Church leadership over blacks and the priesthood. The other topics, such as activism, within membership, and outside of the Church, was already well handled and no need for more resources, and if you don't agree, then so be it.

    Ask the Church if they can open up its data for analysis? We won't know for sure unless the Church is willing to share the data.

    You're being vague and shifting the goal posts. Can you tell me exactly what you want a CFR for? I will hustle and get the reference, I do it for those reading, not you.

    Haha, I love the continued CFR. Yes, I will try to reach out to Greg, he was my high councilman back in the day and brought so much to the DC area. By far, one of my favorite fellow Mormons. He wouldn't share your viewpoints at all based on his writings. Please read this text from Greg, you don't need to buy his book. Yes, there was contention over blacks and the priesthood. https://dialoguejournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Dialogue_V35N01_157.pdf Hurry up, get the truck fired up, time to move the goal posts again. Edited to say, go buy his book on McKay, it's one of the best LDS oriented books on the market. I shouldn't say "don't need to buy his book." I meant that you can get a glimpse into Greg's research in the linked article below.

    Already provided the references with Greg's interview and also his book. Do you want me to see if I can get Greg Prince to come on this board so you tell us what he believes and what his research states? I can try to reach out to him tonight.

    I believe you're suggestions are wrong regarding most sending in resignations come from outside of the core group. Outside of the core group, we have many that don't even realize they're members, we can point to South American membership as an example. If they don't know they're members, or like many others, they don't care and Mormonism pretty much is non-existent, then taking the time to resign doesn't matter. Resignations arrive to the Church doorstep because someone is not happy with the Church or they want to be left alone.

    Read Prince's book and get an idea in regards to contention with the Presidency and the 12 and also the contention from within the membership. I will take Greg's research over your words on this message board. Greg Prince is well respected and produces thoroughly vetted texts.

    Greg Prince and the Genesis group disagrees.
  15. Not "threads," only posts, and the majority of my posts are responses to your post. You're crying for help by making this post above, because you want this thread closed. I get that. I offer you this, I play on your homecourt, this board. This board was my home court at one point too, but issues arose. I don't have any ill will towards anyone, and when I discuss your posts, I am asking if you think your points are good. I will erase any post you feel offended you. I am sure you believe that your viewpoint is more valid than mine. I guess that's up to the readers. Again, I will erase anything you feel offends you. Tell me the post and I will delete.
