Darth_Bill Posted July 29, 2009 Share Posted July 29, 2009 Darth- there is evidence the milk stripping incident occurred. For one thing, Marsh himself never countered it though he was well aware of it. Further, there are contemporary journal entries that discuss the incident. While we typically afford it more than its due weight in terms of causing Marsh's apostasy, trying to claim it didn't happen at all goes too far. I'm doing more research on this incident but it is far from being ready to talk about.Oh, I'm interested. The BCC source said that it wasn't discussed in the HP meeting that GAS referred to, at least by the official notes. I'm open to it having occurred, but considering all that was going on at the time, to say that this was the cause of his defection would be a little much. I think his official reason for leaving would be much more reasonable. I have annoying people in my ward and some very good friends that have much different opinions than I have and it doesn't phase me. I have been wronged by other church members (and even church policies). Still a member. When they want to go off and start hurting people, that's when I reconsider my associations. Perhaps I project too much. Link to comment
