Of Mothers and T-Shirts
Glenn sits down for a brief discussion with his mother about her faith crisis and elicits her sage advice for listeners of Infants on Thrones. Which starts with how to get an IOT T-Shirt (or super awesome mug) of your very own. Check out the T-Shirt Tab on our website, infantsonthrones.com.
Independence Day 2016
A never-Mormon from England stumbled across Infants on Thrones and tells us who she is and what she thinks. A woman comes to terms with her reaction to her drag Queen husband. A physician who suffers from Crohns Disease explains the psychological and emotional impact of daily chronic pain, and a way that understanding changes the traditional narrative of Jesus bleeding from every pore in the Atonement. These are just a few of the many excellent listener essays in today’s Infant Compilation. They are all very good, except for the bad parts. (that’s not a slam — it’s a reference to one of the essays. You’ll see what I mean)
Priesthood Power and the Magic Worldview
John Hamer teaches Glenn, Randy, and Jake a thing or two about the LDS priesthood. And its origins. And its authority. And its power. And the magical-ness of the Mormon Worldview. And it is funny. And informative. And will tickle your ears, warm your hearts, and engorge your brains. Do not seek the treasure (we thought you was a toad).
Ezra Taft Benson: The Smackdown
Fun fact: this episode was almost titled “Communist-lead Negro Guerrilla Units.” Why? Find out for yourself as Randy, Glenn, and Matt welcome Anissa and Kim back to the podcast to smack down a 1967 conference talk from Ezra Taft Benson called “Civil Rights: Tool of Communist Deception.”
Fair warning: do not drink any dark liquids while listening to this episode, as you might unintentionally yet fervidly stain your habiliments.
Child Abuse in the Church
Matt Long talks with John Dehlin about the recently re-released article on their website, titled, “Effectiveness of Church Approach to Preventing Child Abuse.” Spoiler alert: Matt was not impressed.
Matt, Randy, and Glenn smack down Elder Nelson’s recent address to BYU-H students. America’s favorite dancer Benji Schwimmer joins us for the second half. And Randy’s favorite celebrity Gwenyth Paltrow may or may not make a special appearance as well.
LDS Mass Resignation Interviews
IOT listener Sage conducts man-(and-women)-on-the-street interviews at the LDS Mass Resignation event held in Salt Lake City on Saturday, November 14, 2015. Thanks Sage!
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.
Disney Songs for Alienated Mormon Kids
Do you love the Mormon Church? Do you love their new totally Christ-like policy of alienation and exclusion for children of certain kinds of abominable parents? Do you love the magical songs of Disney? Do you love Infants on Thrones’ sing-a-long smack downs? Well, if you love all that stuff right there, then this is the episode you have never known you were always waiting for your entire life. Enjoy!
Special thanks to Craig Keeling for the album art.
Edit: The songs are now individually available on YouTube:
Smackdown: New LDS Policy Punishing Children If Their Parents Are Gay
What’s worse than murder and rape? The only sin so powerful it punishes innocent children for the “sins” of their parents even if, you know, that doesn’t sound like Mormon Doctrine… In this episode, Bob, Matt, Randy, and Scott discuss the new policy changes from the Mormon Church that set apart homosexuality as a sin unlike any other.
Children of same-sex married people must now be 18 to be baptized and must disavow their parents’ marriage. Follow along as we smackdown the changes to LDS Handbook 1.
