general conference just hours from starting, dissident activists are working
themselves into a frenzy to use the timing to get out their message. And the Salt Lake Tribune
is more than willing
to give them the prime-time pulpit they desire (though most faithful Mormons
don’t read or like the Tribune
). I would
suppose that Tribune
they are being used by these people and are more than willing to participate.
After all, people are reading their paper/website and that is what it’s all about.
In a few days general conference
will be over. Two new apostles will have been sustained; perhaps other items of
noteworthy/newsworthy adjustment and change may occur. It won’t be long now until
we know. But these activists will still have to live with the consequences of
their actions. Those who used the Tribune
as a tool to rail against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will
find they have no trust or standing in the church they claim membership in.
Even if they are not excommunicated for their open public opposition and
slander, they have still excommunicated themselves figuratively. If they have
already left the church, which is likely, their words carry even less meaning
than otherwise. They have lost their integrity and sold their birthright for a
mess of pottage. I am so, so, very grad I am not them; that I didn’t march
against the prophets and apostles that I love; that I didn’t write a shameful public
letter. Shame on them and the Tribune
for printing this tripe.
I love this blog. We need more blunt talk regarding the agendas of these people. Keep fighting the good fight!ReplyDelete
