MHH76: LDS Church and Spiritual Extortion

Lesley Butterfield is back again to discuss her recent Commentary published in the Salt Lake Tribune entitled “LDS Church Officials are Practicing Spiritual Extortion.” Lesley speaks from a place of personal heartache as she describes how the Policies and Doctrine elicited by LDS Officials are indeed abusive. Her experiences are all too common. Lesley ends with a powerful declaration of what her Heaven will be full of, in contrast to the Mormon Heaven spoke of by Prophet and President Russel M. Nelson in the most recent LDS General Conference. This was previously Exclusive Patreon content and is now released public. Check out the video of this episode on Patreon today!
