Description

This is a place for dialogue about 'Christians vs Pharisees: Choosing sides and how to fight for them in the Mormon Civil War' and other collaborations like 'The Loyal Opposition' where Peter Bleakley has teamed up with Nemo the Mormon. At current rates of decline in active membership the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will functionally cease to exist in Europe, most of the rest of the world and several regions of the USA in the next 10-15 years, so radical reforms need to happen now if it is to survive, and it may already too late. The vast majority of members have already left the Church globally, including 80% of the young people raised in it, and recently leaked data has revealed that in my homeland of the UK and the Republic of Ireland we are down to less than 15% of our members active and it is falling fast. The stats across the rest of Europe are similar. I will be discussing not only what the General Authorities and local leaders and members have to stop doing and saying to choose Christian Mormonism instead of Pharisee Mormonism (and stop trying to teach and practice both at once and failing), but also the positive changes that need to happen radically and fast to have this amazing religion with so much positive potential survive and thrive in the real world of the 21st Century. What do you think it will take?

With April 2024 General Conference looming in a few days, the Church haemorrhaging members and facing extinction in the coming decade, and a First Presidency in their 90’s and on their very last legs, how about a different kind of General Conference Predictions show? Rather than being hopeful but realistic in our predictions for what the General Authorities will actually announce from their velvet thrones, what if we predicted everything they actually NEED to announce and change to save the C...
What if there was a General Conference of the leading LDS Loonbats selling dangerous brutal parenting, energy healing mumbo jumbo, porn addiction paranoia, anti-science propaganda, child rescuing fraud with celebrity donors, thought-stopping Blind Faith and end time prepper visions of imminent apocalypse? All curated by notorious ‘Visions of Glory’ Mentor-To-The-Maniacs Thom Harrison… with a General Authority thrown in? Well, there was! Find out what they said before it was ...
As I continue to map out a pathway for radically reforming the LDS Church to avoid its imminent self-destruction that is already authorised by its scriptures and written constitution, things just got wild! This episode will begin to guide you through the astonishing parade of scammers and lunatics with their own visions for the rescue and future of the Church who have been infiltrating every level of the religious and political hierarchy and the wider culture in Mormonland... with headline-gr...
The 11A 'Take Back Control' miniseries will resume soon, but here is a special treat. Maven crossed the world to join me in the Sceptred Isles and review an extraordinary and rare encounter in Online Mormon World. Brian Hales, regarded as the leading expert on Joseph Smith's Polygamy having published a trilogy about it, went on Michelle Stone's podcast '132 Problems: Revisiting Mormon Polygamy' podcast which is the flagship voice for a growing movement of Latter-day Saints w...
As the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints falls into its final self-inflicted spiral to destruction here in the UK, around the world, and even in its American heartlands, it's time to get real. After 5 years of exploring the causes and solutions for this crisis, in this miniseries I will make the strongest case I can for what has gone wrong and how we have to bring about significant regime change at the General Authority level to have any hope of the Church surviving, or deserv...
As we conclude the Bradgate Episodes 10 series things get truly crazy. Imagine if despite the Church officially disavowing all racism in and out of the Church, past and present, in its 2012 statement and 2013 Race and the Priesthood Gospel Topics Essay, and everything President Nelson has been saying to the Mormons and the NAACP about moving on from every trace of the Church's racist past, and Brad Wilcox being vilified and appearing to be publicly corrected by Ahmad Corbitt, his black fellow...
In this episode Bradgate reaches the day of reconning. Brad Wilcox's fellow Young Men General Presidency member Ahmad Corbitt is quickly brought in to rehabilitate him in his next youth fireside. It should have been perfect - Brad sort of apologises without being specific about much, and his token black friend spins a yarn about how cosmopolitan Brad is, and how he actually lived in Ethiopia as a child, implying he can't possibly be racist really. But then it all unravels - Brad's...
In this episode we experience and discuss the very best and very worst of Brad Wilcox - a fantastic General Conference talk that would have transformed by experience as a youth but came 3 decades too late, and his nosedive into weak apologetics, sexism and racism in his infamous Alpine Tri-Stake Youth Broadcast. We also have some serious thoughts and fun with superstar Mormon historian Patrick Mason's startling suggestion that he and his academic peers should really be the ones running t...
In this episode we finish analysing what Brad Wilcox said in his online fireside Sunderland, England Stake hosted before launching into his Alpine Tri-Stake Disaster, and the rehabilitation that made everything worse, in the following episodes. I also do my best to keep up with developments in the shocking exposure by Associated Press reporter Michael Rezendes, whose 'Spotlight' investigative journalism opened the can of worms of abuse coverups in the Catholic Church, as he takes a flam...
In this episode we spend some time dipping into the Covid Lockdown online fireside Sunderland, England Stake hosted with my favourite kosher LDS apologist, historian Patrick Mason, as a contrast to the approach of Brad Wilcox and other General Authorities and apologists like him. Patrick talked a lot of sense, addressing directly the trust-threatening issues that drive people out of the LDS Church, and he only told one massive lie. In the world of kosher LDS apologists, this is ab...
BRADGATE!! WHAT THE CHURCH MUST LEARN FROM THE FALL AND ATTEMPTED REHABILITATION OF BRAD WILCOX EPISODE 10B - BRADGATE!! WHO IS BRAD WILCOX?

BRADGATE!! WHAT THE CHURCH MUST LEARN FROM THE FALL AND ATTEMPTED REHABILITATION OF BRAD WILCOX EPISODE 10A - THE STATE OF THE DISUNIONThere is so much to chew on as we process what Brad Wilcox, Elementary School Teacher, BYU Professor of Ancient Scripture (with no relevant qualifications whatsoever), internet sensation and Counsellor on the Young Men General Presidency has been teaching the youth of the Church, as revealed when his Alpine, Utah Tri-Stake Fireside on 6 February 2022 went...

If you could write a letter to the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that they were obliged to actually read instead of just forwarding it to your Stake President to deal with without reading it as they usually do, what would YOU want to put in it? This is a vanishingly rare, once in a lifetime opportunity for a faithful Latter-day Saint. The high price of this privilege is excommunication, so it needs to be worth it to pay that much! I was g...
Apostle Jeffrey Holland ruffled a lot of feathers in a speech at BYU last week in which he bullied the faculty that they should turn metaphorical muskets against LGBTQ students, their allies, and critics of the Church, and prioritise being propagandists over credible academics even if it means the university losing accreditation for its courses, or they will be defunded by their First Presidency owners. As well as all those people, he also threw under the bus BYU Valedictorian Matt East...
There will be a few more 'Episode 6 - The Thought Police minisodes', but it's time to deliver the long-promised Episode 7, which will probably have 2 minisodes. Here I explore what I think are the doctrinal and organisational strengths of Mormonism that could still save it from its current freefall into oblivion, and even enable it to become a major world religion as predicted by sociologists in the 1980's if we put THESE things front and centre in our teaching and outreach to the world...
