"He described a progression from the “Camelot Age,” when LDS Church history was under the direction of Leonard Arrington, and sometimes had a sanitized cast to today’s “Age of Full Disclosure.” Today there is the belief that Joseph Smith can “stand up for himself” and that history thrives when historians are free to pursue truth — including the warts as well as glories."
From the things I have read it seems that Leonard Arrington did away with the "Camelot Age" and they got rid of him because of it.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_J._Arrington
Yeah, there is something ass-backwards about that article. I may just be a cynical old woman, but what I hear it saying is something like this: Rest assured, members, what you hear in church is the unvarnished truth and all the truth you need. No need to go outside the manuals. Joseph Smith can stand up for himself, and we'll tell you all about him, warts and all. Trust in your leaders and your apologists and your correlation comittee.
