MHH73: Part 1 Call to Elder Dyches of the Strengthening Church Members Committee

Today, 3 Mormons are back to call the Strengthening Church Members Committee. This Committee serves the church leadership as an Orwellian group of dutiful spies who track down the activities of members who have been deemed apostate. These files contain screenshots of online activities and other evidence of apostasy. Once a member gains the level of public attention that is deemed problematic to the LDS highest authority, the member’s local leaders, Bishops and Stake Presidents, are given the go-ahead to begin disciplinary action. As you may remember from MHH Ep57, myself, Lesley Butterfield and Bryce Blankenagel are still members of record and have not yet resigned for unique reasons. So we decided to call Elder Dyches this morning to obtain what information was found in our prospective SCMC member files. Listen in to see how it went and what new information we gained! Lesley asks specifically about what recourse members have who are abused by the very local ecclesiastical leaders that Church HQ refers us back to when we raise concern. Don’t miss Part 2 where we discuss this call and all the new information and its significance later today.

MHH70: The 420 Cannabis Special Part 1

It’s here! The Mormon Happy Hour Celebration of 420! Leaving a high demand, conservative religion such as Mormonism, complete with a code for what to put in your body called the Word of Wisdom, you have some deep seeded caution, fear and apprehension about a substance designated as a “drug.” Join me as I take you on my own exploration with this natural plant, and what it can bring to our lives. In Part 1, I am joined by my sister-in-law Valerie, who brings a show and tell, with refreshments, and answers all the listener submitted questions we received. Don’t miss the after-effects video of Val and I discussing what it felt like to “taste-test” the products she brought, on Patreon now! And come back for Part 2, where I bring on a grow enthusiast, a cannabis candy maker, and a professional who all discuss their avid use of Cannabis and what it has brought to their life!
