The Alarming Truth Behind Anti-Mormonism: The Smackdown
Glenn, Matt, and Scott smack down a blog post because many of you asked us to. So we did. In front of about 50 lovely listeners. And now the rest of you can hear it. This episode was recorded January 8, 2017.
Bonus General Conference 2016
Follow our beloved President Boyd K Packer for his annual All Hallow’s return from the eternal hereafter to lead us all through some bonus listener generated conference content (mingled with a few little Infant-generated tricks and treats, both new and old).
Special and remarkable thanks to Andrew, Holly, Jordan, and Sage for their special and remarkable contributions.
Enjoy! (that is a command)
Education and Faith
This is the audio to Glenn’s Sunstone presentation given on July 30, 2016, where Glenn explains the type of Mormon he was before and after his graduate studies (culminating in a MA Thesis Japanese Lost Tribes stories and a half-finished dissertation on Mormon Humor), and walks through some of the reasons why — for him — faith ultimately yielded to education (and uncertainty).
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.
Faith and Doubt
Glenn shares one of the last talks he gave in Sacrament meeting. And then rips it to shreds, self-smackdown-styles.
For those of you who like a transcript, you can find at least a copy of the talk here, where it was posted on the Mormon Matters blog in June, 2010:
Belief-umentary: Religulous vs. Kumare
The full quorum (Bob, Glenn, Jesse, Matt, Randy, & Tom) gets together to review, discuss, and compare two movies that both try to tackle the topic of organized religion: Religulous and Kumare. They are both available via Netflix streaming, but you don’t need to see either movie to follow the discussion.
