Kids After Mormonism
Happy Father’s Day! In honor of this manliest of holidays, Bob is joined by Scott and Jake to discuss how Mormonism may or may not affect the decision to have kids as well as decisions on how to parent. Also, Heather joins us a little later to add her perspective.
Infant Retreat/Otterson Smackdown
Seven of the Nine Infants gathered for a weekend in Vail Colorado and recorded their response to some listener feedback and a smackdown-of-sorts to a newspaper article about (former) Mormon PR Boss Michael Otterson. So listen in as Glenn, Tom, Randy, Jake, Matt, John, and Scott sit around the same table and talk into a single microphone for once.
The Abrahamic Covenant Revisited
Glenn walks us through another Fro-back Friday episode — a discussion recorded in December 2010 between pre-Infants Glenn, Tom, and Scott (aka “Jesse”) with special guests Mike Tannehill and Brandt Malone. It’s all about the importance of bloodlines. And posterity. And covenants. And dispensations. And how Abraham sort of trumps Jesus in the whole hierarchy of what it is that makes Mormons so damn special. Enjoy.
An Evening With Elder Ballard
Heather and Jake join Scott in picking apart Elder Ballard’s recent address to CES employees.
A Tale of Two Poelmans
In 1984, Elder Ronald E Polman delivered a talk titled “The Gospel and the Church” in General Conference. It emphasized the importance of an eternally divine gospel being delivered through a man-made fallible church. The Brethren did not like this message, and made him re-write the talk to make the church as eternally divine and infallible as the gospel. They also made him re-deliver the talk in front of an empty tabernacle to record it and pass it off as the original. But thanks to home VCRs, they got caught. And today you can hear all about it, including clips from both the original talk and the re-written message. So listen in as Glenn and Scott (aka Jesse) are joined by Rock Waterman and James Rogers two discuss A Tale of two Poelmans.
*This recorded conversation was previously released in January 2011 on another podcast but has since been removed. Now it is back where it belongs.

Smackdown: Clarification of the New and Improved LDS Policy Punishing Children if they principally live with a parent who is gay
What a week, huh? Other suggested titles for this episode were from Bob “LDS Clarification of the Clarification The Sequel: The Broken Bat-phone” or possibly even “Smackdown of the clarifying Handbook to the unofficial Handbook of the non-contextual Handbook” from Heather. But whatever you want to call it, it’s basically just Glenn, Jake, Heather, Bob, Matt, and Scott discussing the most recent (as of today) clarification of the New and Improved LDS Mormon Children Alienation and Exclusion Policy. Spoiler alert: It’s only the kids who are living primarily with gay parents who are denied the ordinances necessary for salvation and it’s to protect them, so — that makes this all better… right? Right????
Family Under Attack – Man on Man Edition
How is this new LDS policy impacting real lives of real people? Why would a gay couple even want their children to be involved in the Mormon church? And how does a gay person even have children in the first place? Scott conducts two interviews with men whose families are directly impacted by the LDS Church’s Children Alienation and Exclusion policy. Listen in as the Infants once again do their darnedest to scoop their big tall buddy, John Dehlin.
