Joseph Smith set up a theocracy. The church is still a theocracy. Follow the prophet or else. I think most of us didn’t like that. I didn’t like the extreme pressure to follow leaders I didn’t know just because they held rank in the church.
I’m all for going to hear a sermon or hear a choir sing or to attend a Sunday School class. I’m all for church activities. I don’t mind paying a donation to foot some of the costs if I’m participating. But I don’t want to be told to follow anyone or be given orders to follow. Bag that.
