To what end? Is the Mormon Stories conference a real attention grabber? I mean, other than the apologists throwing a hissy fit over it, what is the big deal in your view?

Not trying to be hostile, I guess I just don't see the connection.

I hardly notice Mormon Stories outside of the podcast.

I was speaking more in regards to disruption within the conference. Just throwing the idea out there. I don't know, of course. Hopefully we can know the authenticity of the email soon. Thx.

Yes, it would cause a huge eruption of joy there. No doubt!

Is it disrupting? Do you think that was the intent? Maybe it's just unintentional collateral damage?

I have no idea. Maybe if the email is a hoax. But if it is authentic, probably not.

Maybe intended as a sign of good will, a passing of the peace pipe, a signing of a treaty of peace.

Dr. Bradford:

I understand that some contract issues may be affected by my resignation as Director of Advancement. I trust that we can work those out in a civil manner. Pending my dismissal from METI, I will insist that I continue to be compensated as a director in my role, which I will now have more time for, as its editor in chief. I also expect my usual fee as editor of the issue of the Mormon Studies Review that you've killed. It was finished and ready to go.

Very seriously yours,

Daniel C. Peterson

I thought he wasn't paid for apologetics?

What are you taking about?

Everybody knows that there was never really any hit piece concerning John Dehlin at MI, or anywhere else - DCP said so.
:mrgreen:

( I think this is real and have a big grin on my face. There has even been a slight uptick in my fast faltering respect for the LDS Church.)

I'd bet the loss of David B plays in here somewhere as well. If so, I also find this satisfying.

Is it true that Dan is taking a third of the hosts of the MI with him?

These are dangerous hours for DCP. His fate remains to be seen. I give it as my opinion that he is doomed.

THANK YOU! That was my first thought. How does editing the Review NOT count as being paid for apologetic work?

I'm predicting the excommunication of Dehlin eventually shakes out of this.

Dr. Peterson appears to have been "offended" by another member; I hear that's the main reason people leave the Church.

Is DCP speaking evil to the Lord's annointed. What happend to the "obey" part of pray, pay, obey?

He's too worried about getting paid.

It's really remarkable how much of the (alleged) email is devoted to talk of money, donors, and revenue streams. Will we hear jokes about "gold faucets" and so forth in Kerry Shirts's film of the next FAIR conference, I wonder? (Provided that they allow him to come, of course.) The extend to which we have been deceived is astonishing.

Screwing with church finances, isn't that the sort of thing people get ex'ed for?
