In this femisode, Heather, her sister Jennifer, Jennifer’s friend Crys and Crys’s friend Charlie get together to form the largest women’s Infants on Thrones panel in the world–presided over and mansplained by priesthood holder Brother Jake.

First they smack up Jennifer’s Reddit diatribe against the much-shared facebook post inviting Women’s March attendees to join “the oldest and largest women’s organization in the world’ the LDS Reliesosidy: Relief Society is NOT a Women’s Group! 

Then they smack down a Mormon Women Stand article written by a women who marches around her privileged domestic palace shaming other women who aren’t content to march like she does.

In their spare time they talk about Crys and Charlie’s experiences at the Women’s March and what girls would do if they could hold an activity in the church without a priesthood holder present.

Smackdown

Posted January 8th, 2017

Don’t you miss Sunday School?  Don’t you miss frantically preparing your gospel doctrine lesson during sacrament meeting? Don’t you miss showing off your knowledge in class by citing scripture and verse or showing off your testimony with a well-rehearsed and choked-up personal anecdote?  Well grab your quad, your cardigan, and your clip on tie because it’s time to study D&C lesson 24 with Glenn, Randy and Heather smackdown style.

Unrighteous Dominion: The Smackdown

Smackdown

Posted September 25th, 2016

Should LDS Bishops ask 7-year-old children if they “touch themselves” or if they show their private parts to others?

Jake, Matt and Glenn dramatically and critically re-enact a real live secretly recorded bishops interview with a real live secretly recorded bishop.  If you believe that Prophets instruct Apostles, and that Apostles instruct General Authorities, and that General Authorities instruct Stake Presidents, and that Stake Presidents instruct Bishops, and that Bishops instruct Elders Quorum presidents and Relief Society Presidents, then you probably don’t need to worry if you are ever in a car accident.  And you would also certainly fail in a game of Six Degrees of God (i.e. Kevin Bacon).
