Wow, you guys really shut down threads fast here.

Steve, you obviously don't know what the position of Director of Publications for the CHD is. It has nothing to do with bookstores.
I've read through a number of your threads here and I see a clear pattern of over-sensationalism and assumptions. I suppose it's no worse that what I have read on MormonThink or from UTLM, but I caution the rest of the readers here to not mistake Steve's comments for trustworthy scholarship. I'm not saying that you can trust what the church has historically put out either, but at least you can cut them a little slack for having an obvious devotional bias.
