Glenn and Tom (sorta) sit down once again with Lars Neilson to discuss the fall out from last month’s Letter to the IRS Director, and specifically discuss the most recent Washington Post article detailing the fall-out between Lars and his twin brother David, the whistleblower who did not want this information to go public. We talk about their shared background, their family culture, their motivation for filing this whistleblower report, and the reasons why David wanted to keep it quiet while Lars wanted to share this information with the public.
What happens when the Lord™ draws a firm line in the sand (in November 2015) and then kinda sorta undraws it 3 1/2 years later? Glenn, Heather, and Tom discuss. With maybe a brief special visit from a certain Brother Jake. Enjoy.
The Infants pay a brief but special tribute to the recent remarkable words and message of Elder David A(hole) Bednar, and to the huge Packer-sized stick shoved up his member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ass. Special thanks to Lily Allen for nailing it so completely.
Matt asks, “Hey Glenn, where was this two days ago?”
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.

Special guest Tom Phillips is joined by Scott, Matt, Bob and Glenn to discuss the recent summons against Thomas S. Monson and the LDS Church. Part two explores:
• The criteria Tom Phillips used to select his seven charges against the church
• How the UK has jurisdiction over a US citizen
• What could happen if Monson is found guilty
• Whether or not this case could simply be thrown out
• The unique way the British government pays a portion of tithing money directly to the church on behalf of its citizen.
• How Tom’s experience with the 2nd anointing could play in to all of this
