The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, we take a very critical look at some of the more famous

talks given by the late Boyd K. Packer. Hopefully no listeners hold

any preference to Packer, because we tear down every possible aspect

of this homophobic, mysoginistic's bully pulpit preaching. It gets

personal, so strap in, and get ready for some fucked up,

disconnected-from-reality bullshit from this rotting corpse.

On this episode, we talk about the interrum period from when Joe and Marty signed the contract with E.B. Grandin to publish the Book of Mormon, until the book is published in March 1830. A lot happens, and Joe starts to really gain a reputation for himself, with both dissenters, and supporters of his cause. Joe also gives some revelations about a quick $205,000 that prove to be laughably false.

On this episode, we take another break from the historical analysis to talk with  listeners Preston and Melissa. We get to hear about their transition from returned missionary believer, to questioning, to lost in the real world after asking the hard questions about Mormonism. There's even a cameo from their daughter and she offers her unique perspective. I want to express my appreciation to their whole family for being so hospitable and nice to a stranger in their house with a microphone and laptop. It was a lot of fun talking with all of you, and learning so much.

On this episode, we take another break from the historical analysis to talk with  listener J T. She makes transitions from Catholicism, to fundamentalist converted Jew, and lots in between. She has a great story and I appreciate her contributing her voice, and talents to the show, and facebook page. Soul Breaker Demonista Julie is a great and interesting friend, thank you for spending two hours discussion religion and life with me!
