Ep 475 – Week of Tannehill – The Unintentional Racist
Mike Tannehill (love him or hate him) is fighting the good fight against the Mormon church. Or at least against the influence of those liberal academic types trying to re-write church history — more specifically those authors of the recent essay Race and the Priesthood on LDS.org who would have us believe that church doctrine is nothing more than the “theories” of racist men influenced by a racist time who simply could not call down a revelation from God until 1978. Listen in as Mike explains how he remains True to the Faith. When the enemy assaileth, shall he shirk or shun the fight? NO!!!

Ep 473 – Week of Tannehill – The Signs of the Times
What does the “latter day” in Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints actually mean? When is the end of the world coming and what are the signs that it is near? This was the 14th episode of Infants on Thrones, originally published in April 2013, and it is a doozy.
Ep 472 – Week of Tannehill – The Apostasy
Glenn takes you back to the 4th episode of Infants on Thrones, originally published in September 2012. It is a surprisingly good Radio Lab styled episode, centering on the narrative structure of “loss and restoration” found both in and out of the Mormon church. Mike Tannehill also provides some criteria by which one may determine if a church is in apostasy. (Be careful Mike. This was recorded pre-essays on LDS.com, buddy!)
Ep 471 – Week of Tannehill – The Abrahamic Covenant

What if the spirit of Moroni told the spirit of Joseph Smith to tell the spirit of Glenn to peep into his stones and re-translate the Book of Mormon from the perspective of a newly revealed Book of Mormon character named Shadow the Lamanite? (Zelph’s cousin, three-times removed) Would you maybe possibly get a whole ‘nother testament of Jesus Christ? Listen in and find out.
