Joseph Smith

If you don't believe in it you can't quote it?

It has been a while. It isn't that I don't have things to post but I've been busy and less interested in the church than I was. I think that is a good sign of recovery.

I wanted to post some things from a conversation I am having with a mormon. He is very unusual because though he claims to be LDS he seems to believe that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were fallen prophets.

The best part, though, is probably trying to explain to him that I can quote someone and not believe what they say to be true. He seems to have trouble grasping this. It's the argument of "you are an ex-mormon so you cannot quote mormon leaders because you don't believe in the church!" Excerpts of the conversation follow.
