Unofficial Big Love

Real Mormons Talking About Fictional Mormons

Episode 6: Divorce, (More) Women and the Priesthood, the Mormon “Brand”

We’re all back (Melissa too!) to tackle the fifth Big Love episode on our sixth podcast.

The D-word comes up early on. Is it just to adopt Cara Lynn, or does it mean more?

Barb and the Priesthood–a recurring theme–is a big again in this episode. We talk about the laying on of hands and lines of authority, which Bill says Barb doesn’t have. Do Mormons believe someone can receive the Priesthood through the Still Small Voice or the Holy Ghost? (No.)

Bill is invited to the LDS Church Office Building to discuss his use of the word “Mormon.” The mainstream Church has indeed worked hard to control its brand image through the years, going back at least to Wilford Woodruff’s Manifesto in 1890.

We also check in on the Greg Ivy/Cara Lynn situation, the Bill-o-meter, and more!

      Now if it had some cookies along with it… then perhaps the coercion would work on me!
