MHH30: Interview w/Ethan Dodge, Sam’s Hunger Strike Update, and BYU’s Amnesty Loophole

Colleen gives an update on Sam Young’s Hunger Strike this past week in downtown SLC. Then she RANTS about the GIANT loophole that basically makes BYU’s recent Amnesty Policy completely worthless, as  was demonstrated at BYU-I when a student was expelled by her Bishop following a sexual assault. And to wrap things up on a lighthearted note, she gives you the gift of Ethan Dodge of MormonLeaks, an interview from Sunstone.  It’s basically lots of shit talking and cheap jokes. Colleen sounds really stupid, and Ethan shows off his nerdy smart knowledge correcting her. They both practice roasting Ryan McKnight, the ego behind MormonLeaks. For bonus points, what’s the phrase in this video that would make a winning drinking game prompt? Check out the FULL VIDEO of the interview on Patreon!

MHH17: The LDS Inc Non-Consensual Shit Show!

Last week in Mormonism was one for the history books! Those whisperings that this conference season would be one to remember certainly did not disappoint! The Angels on Fire tackle the headlines for the past week, beginning with the Protect LDS Children March on Friday, March 30th and Crystal Legionaires, the woman who shouted “Stop Protecting Sexual Predators” during Conference. Next, Quentin Cook’s harmful creation of “non-consensual immorality.” Explosive news as MTC Rape Victim of Joseph Bishop, McKenna Denson comes out of anonymity in a press conference to announce a civil lawsuit citing both Joseph Bishop and the LDS Church. Shocking revelations are discovered as the dossier created to discredit Denson reveals extremely sensitive information, including releasing adoption records from before her mission. And finally, a predominant LDS fertility doctor is sued for the non-consensual use of his own sperm to impregnate his patients.
