A glimpse into Mormon machinations,
meddling, and thinking at the top
The Salt Lake Tribune’s quick-read summary
Yesterday, a group calling itself “Mormon Leaks” uploaded to YouTube videos of private meetings of the Mormon Church’s apostles, who with its First Presidency are its ruling body. The conversations most likely took place between 2008 and 2011.
Some disturbing highlights:
• A United States Senator grovels before the apostles, says his temple recommend means more to him than his duties as a senator, and that if you want to know his policy on social issues, consult the LDS Church’s Bishop’s handbook.
• Never mind the implications of actions by Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning; Dallin Oaks and other Mormon apostles want to know if they’re gay. As if that would explain sooooo much?
• Mormon Apostle Dallin Oaks suggests collusion between the media and the so-called “gay agenda.” Paranoid a little?
• Church leaders views world events through the lens of plans for church expansion.
