"It is fundamentally immoral to lead someone into a high demand, high expectation, potentially harmful religious system if they are led there under false pretenses.
"Especially when so much time, so much money, so much reputation, & exact obedience are at stake." ~ Dr John Dehlin

So -- are The Bretheren concerned with truth and morality, or only maintaining the appearance thereof?

They're not concerned with "truth" if they lie everyday they send out the world's largest standing army of recruiters who lie by omitting the fact that they sing the praises of a serial rapist, cuckold bull and a con-man.

They're concerned with 'morality' as long as it leads to padding their $100 Billion stock portfolios. They don't really give a shit about 'morality' or they'd condemn Joseph's Myth as a serial rapist, cuckold bull and an adulterer, who deserved to be shot like a dog.

They do care about appearances, more than anything except money, but they go hand in hand. Rich/white/straight/virginal = blessed/beautiful/lovely/pure.
Poor/not white/pierced/tatooed = cursed/ugly/despised/disposable.

And yet Dehlin tries to reason it all out, as if he takes them at all seriously.

That's what is curious.

I don't know with what they are concerned. I do believe that they are concerned with the ecclesaistical heirarchy maintaining a 24/7 "B I T E" control over the membership.
If this perception is true then the only thing they are actually concerned with is P O W E R !!!

Prophet Dehlin-

It IS immoral.

The LDSc is immoral...

Yet, it deceives for profits. Members. Glamour. Image. FEELINGS! "Family" Salvation. Superstitious Promises of posturnaLIFE... and eternity without lines, smoke, or masks.

It knows IF IT TOLD YOU (the world, the public, the Investigator, the Member) THE TRUTH (and had it's missionaries Preach The Truth), it might not be able keep you or TRAP YOU into becoming one of them.
