An "Authority"?  Huh?  I was just adding my two-cents.  That's it.  Who is this Granny Geer?  Tell me about her please.

I am not on here to "defend" John D. Lee one way or another.

Peace.

She wrote Mormonism, Mama, and Me.

edit.. I forgot she was also featured in the movie The Godmakers.

You know perfectly well that you misrepresent Dan when you call him "a member of the committee."

Dan has discussed his specific involvement as an "agent" of the committee. Perhaps he is speaking to just this one episode, but it seems like Dan knows an awful lot about how that committee works.

Since the work of the committee conforms in detail to the scripture in question ....

No it doesn't. The "suggest[ion] for your consideration" in D&C 123 relates to gathering facts of injuries and damages caused to the Missouri saints in the 1830's, to be used in seeking redress for those wrongs. It's not talking about folks within the Church 150 years later who simply publish their ideas and scholarship that some in the Church may view as negative or less than orthodox, and for whom secret files are kept, and about whom the materials collected are sent to local leaders to mete out punishment. To twist D&C 123 in this way reveals the desperation at the highest levels in the Church to control the membership and squelch any dissent or heterodox thought.

Rollo, you particularly seem to like unsubstantiated innuendo.

With due respect, sir, I'm the only one here giving and quoting sources.

None of the posts in the last 10 minutes passed the requirement. This topic is closed.
