Here is my presentation at the awesome recent Sunstone UK conference in Birmingham.
- Find out the current state of play at the Battle’s Front!
- 25 brilliant ideas in Mormonism that are worth fighting to defend and restore!
- How exactly we could make the reconstruction happen in time before defeat becomes inevitable?
It was a great event with lots of fun and games with the Britvengers and inspiring presentations and talks by everyone from lovely English emeritus Community of Christ Apostle Andrew Bolton, recently excommunicated LDS sex and relationships counsellor Natasha Helfer, Community of Christ First Presidency member Stassi Cramm and my always thoughtful and wise emeritus Maidstone Stake President David Eton. Sunstone is a great opportunity to meet and learn from people all over the Mormon family and spectrum from orthodox Latter-day Saints to wild rebels.
It was wonderful to finally spend time in person with my podcasting Britvenger collaborators Nemo the Mormon, Alana Wilson Bryce and Jane Christie the Scottish '21st Century Saints' and the hilarious new kid once-bishop Priesthood Dispatches, who had us in stitches. Thankyou Julian and Laura Heath for running Sunstone UK now and doing a fantastic job of it.
The desire to have LDS Mormonism globally and in he UK deal with its dysfunctions and be much more healthy is becoming an organised movement. It is really encouraging to see so many others stepping up to hold our leaders accountable and contributing their unique perspectives and talents to the cause. Please consider joining it in whatever way works for you if you care about Mormonism's health and survival in our country as time to turn it around is quickly running out.
My amazing wife Lynn took a big step at our ward conference on Sunday and bossed it like Boudicca standing up twice to calmly but firmly vote opposed to the current First Presidency and the 12 Apostles who are not holding them accountable for their ongoing lying, control freakery, leader-worship and stealing (the Ensign Peak slush fund has grown rapidly to $140 BILLION now and still not a penny of it has been spent on helping a single person or saving the shrinking Church. At current rates of growth it will be $1 Trillion in 30 years). Freedom Fairy is spreading her wings and the world had better watch out!
