I've been enjoying the Brent Metcalf podcast. Brent gives some interesting insights into the future of apologetics, the ouster and marginalization of DCP, and the infamous "Metcalf is a Butthead" incident. He also discusses the juvenile and puerile behavior of Hamblin/DCP, and that many people felt those two were turning FARMS into a bathroom wall.

Also, Brent discusses Bill Hamblin's 6 page hit piece comparing Dan Vogel and Brent Metcalf as the Beavis and Butthead of Mormon studies. Evidently, Bill distributed this hit piece to FARMS' board of directors and a few of his students. Immediately thereafter, someone leaked the hit piece to Vogel and Metcalf and Bill was forced to email both of them an apology.

Notwithstanding having to issue an apology, Bill showed up two days later at a FARM'S board of directors meeting wearing a Beavis and Butthead t-shirt much to the delight of several board members.

Starts at the 11:00 mark.


Brent also discusses a falsehood that DCP has been intentionally spreading over the internet for years:

Starts at the 14:05 mark.


Enjoy:

Not sure Brent said that, but I never got an apology.

Apologists only apologize for the church they are defending.

It was really bad and tasteless humor, but you are humorless.

When you don't have anything else, an insult will have to do. Right, Bot?
