On October 6, 2016, Hannah Stoddard joined Defending Utah (Ben McClintock, Enoch Moore) and Cherilyn Eager on The Liberty Lineup Radio Show (KTALK 630) to discuss the recent article, “‘The dominant [Church history] narrative is not true . . .’ LDS scholars encourage new history, new policy, new Church.”
Read this first! Some have been confused regarding the position of LDS Answers and the Joseph Smith Foundation regarding the progressive historians quoted and their call for a “reconstructed narrative”. The Joseph Smith Foundation promotes the traditional teachings of ancient and Latter-day prophets. The purpose of this post is to raise awareness of where many LDS intellectuals would like to move the Church. Again, the Joseph Smith Foundation will be providing materials to counter the statements in this article. This is not a discussion of anyone “anti-Mormon”. The scholars quoted are also active members of the Church, although we disagree with their positions.
