It seems quite clear most of you lurk over here frequently. Based on the many comments in the ongoing Dehlin threads a lot of you are unhappy with how he is being treated. There have been more than a few comments comparing this board to MD&D. I invite you to consider that we might not be all that different when it comes down to it, especially in view of these recent threads.

You will be welcome here and welcome to say what ever you want.

The chief difference is, it's really difficult to get banned here. There... not so much.

Well, to be fair, they will experience far more hostility and rancor. But come one come all, anyway.

Perhaps the bullying, backslapping, one-sidedness, anger, and such will dissipate. It won't happen, but one can dream.

I just came on line to see what was happening, and when I go to the MD&D board all I get is this message "This website is offline." Anyone else having problems visiting their site?

An Apostle took it down...

Maybe this is a redux of what some suspected was happening during the B. David Mitchell trial. Maybe some of the people over there are afraid that the GAs will now be looking into the Mopologists' online activities, so they're scrambling to go back and delete posts.

Oh my goodness. (laughing to probably really bad form right now, but still... that's my first inclination)

:eek: :lol:

Why, are you planning on leaving the forum again?

That's not a dis-invite, just curious.

I suspect you're right. Whoever the apostle was who shut down the hit piece, I doubt he'll be happy with how Hamblin/Peterson/Schryver have reacted to his decision.

Maybe they'll get the Randy Bott treatment.

agreed, even though folks like DCP et al. are constantly attacking others I feel it best they get to retain their positions. IRL they are probably all right people.

If the church wants to play it smart, they should quietly shuffle DCP back to his field of study, put the MI into the hands of more credible apologists (like Gardner). Members who are questioning often very much WANT to believe. Many don't need much - some kindness and some thoughtful reasoning, without overt intellectual dishonesty. People like Gardner are more equipped to help struggling members than Peterson, and less likely to embarrass the church in an academic setting.

Yeah, Harmony my dear would never ban my ass. She loves me too much. Besides, if she did, I would appeal to Liz to rescue me.

And, they will be expected to provide an answer to the most important question involving Mormonism:

What is the king's name in Facsimile No. 3?

If they can't answer that -- they will be held accountable for the fact that their founding prophet lied to the whole world.

Oh yes. They will mop and sweep out the various rooms. Cover their tracks. Hide the evidence!

This really is not a safe place for posters who use their real name.
