Showing "excommunication" TagShow all episodes
John Dehlin: The Reluctant Atheist
Glenn, Randy, Heather, and Matt sit down with John Dehlin to discuss life after excommunication and the challenge of self-identifying labels such as Agnostic, Atheist, Ex-Mormon, Anti-Mormon, and others.
The Strength of a Witness
Tom and Randy talk with Craig about his listener essay: The Strength of a Witness.
Excommunication: The Musical
Glenn, Jake, Matt, and John Hamer humbly present “Excommunication: The Musical” — a dramatic recreation of John Dehlin’s secret informal probation meeting that eventually led to his excommunication from the mormon church.
And we occasionally break into song.
Click HERE for the full text for the dramatic — it is “Appendix C: Transcript of August 7, 2014 Meeting With President Bryan King”
Glenn shares a late night epiphany in the wake of the John Dehlin excommunication news. You asked for something vulnerable John? Well, here it is brother.
Kate Kelly’s small-minded Op Ed Smackdown
Kate Kelly is taking heat again. This time for unapologetically claiming that “…only the least talented, least articulate, least nuanced thinkers, least likely to take a stand against abuse, and the least courageous people thrive in the Church today.” Pretty sketchy, huh?
Jake, Erica, Chelsea, and Glenn smack it all down.
Reclaiming Mormonism with Margaret Toscano
Where would Margaret Toscano start if she was asked to reform the Mormon Church?
Listen in as Margaret joins Bob, Chelsea, and Glenn to talk about gender roles, activism, the Ordain Women movement, faith, spirituality, LDS Temple ceremonies, Heavenly Mother, whether or not there should be a separate priesthood for women, and a bunch of other really interesting stuff.
Glenn, Bob, Matt, Scott, Tom, and Jake talk about excommunication in general, and discuss the recent news of pending church discipline against John Dehlin (Mormon Stories), Kate Kelly (Ordain Women), and Rock Waterman (Pure Mormonism).
