Words from the Dust: Joseph H. Jackson, Pt 1
Joseph H. Jackson is perhaps the poor man’s John C Bennett. Both men published exposes on Joseph Smith. Bennett’s work is better known. Jackson’s is lesser known. Both are equally fascinating. This is the first part of a multiplayer-part series.
Infant Investigative Journalism 101: Of Testimonies and 12-Year-olds
Glenn takes a hard-hitting, investigative journalistic approach to Fair Mormon’s recent blog post: “Of Testimonies and Twelve Year Olds.” Thank you, Fair Mormon, for placing this Savannah 12-year-old-lesbian testimony-bearing thingy into the proper context. I don’t know where we would be without you.
The Articles of (non)Faith
Let’s imagine for a moment that we are not in the middle of some major divisive conflicts between people we all appreciate and care about. And instead, let’s ask ourselves the question “what are our shared moral values?” That’s what Glenn does in this minisode. And we desire all to receive it.
Also, please take a few moments to fill out our new survey on VALUES.
We really want to hear what principles are most important to you. Thanks!
Why Can’t We Be Friends: Part 4 – Mad Respect for Kiwi57
Are Mormon Priesthood holders really more powerful than Jesus? Are Mormons really even Christians? Listen in as Glenn responds to some very intelligent, articulate, critical comments recently made on the IOT website by faithful believing Mormon listener Kiwi57.
Check-back from the Neck-flap
Glenn provides a brief update on the listener responses that have come in from yesterday’s episode (TLDL: no, we are not shutting down Infants on Thrones) and shares a particularly awesome mission story, if he does say so himself (And he does. Trust me. I know. Cuz he is me, referring to himself in the third person. Like a weirdo. Trust me on that one, too).
Ask an Infant – Good Friday
Historian extraordinaire John Hamer rains credibility all over the Infants by Hamsplaining the origin of Good Friday. With tongue firmly in cheek, of course (aka “Infant Style”)
Evaluating Evidence: Deconstructing the Trump Dossier – Part 1
What is the difference between “fake news” and “real news?” What is the impact of “alternative facts?” Is there really anything to this buzzfeed-leaked Dossier about Trump’s alleged connections with Russia? What is believable? What is not believable? Scott takes religion out from under the microscope and replaces it with politics in this introduction to a new smackdown series for Infants on Thrones. More to come.
Mindfulness and Music: A Recipe for an Intimate and Passionate Valentine’s Day
Are you planning the perfect date this V-Day? You know, a date that’s the perfect combination of thoughtful, playful, cute, and sexy? Kristin and Matt (but mostly Kristin) suggest one way to turn a lame holiday into a day you and your partner (or partners) will remember for years to come.
Mormon Hypocrisy Disguised as Legitimacy
Bob is joined by himself to discuss the latest attack on John Dehlin’s research aka “John Dehlin and the Weaponization of Scientific Research” aka some Mormon blogger really wanting to be taken seriously.
The Hazards of SHONE
Glenn provides an update on the SHONE project (Short History of Nearly Everything) and asks for some SHONEY volunteers. And then – since it is December and all — Glenn also shares some music from The Decembrists (get it?) He may even sing for you.
