I personally have no horse in this race. Whether someone leaves or stays in the church is of no interest to me. But I am curious about the reaction members give to information like this. Does dismissing it make the problem of inactivity just disappear? Or maybe there has always been those that join and leave. It is just a part of religious organizations.
I wouldn't dismiss it. I think that it shows just how the internet is affecting members. Most of the first three issues listed in the two boxes show the internet influencing the understandings of members. The lds church needs to put out there their own interpretation of these issues. And the debate should be not as to whether the church hides its issue but whose interpretation is more correct.
