Isn't it wonderful? Isn't it marvelous?

What an inspired guy he was.

"Upon arriving home, President McKay stated that the Swiss Temple “would be the first of several such temples to be erected for the Saints in Europe,” explaining that “the Church could bring temples to these people by building smaller edifices for this purpose and more of them.” "

"President Gordon B. Hinckley, then a newly called Assistant to the Twelve, arrived in Britain ahead of other General Authorities so he could “coordinate final arrangements” for the dedication."

""And yet, they've had to travel all the way to Mesa, Ariz., to go to a temple," President Hinckley noted.

He said as they quietly drove along, "I thought of these things and what could be done. The concept of these smaller temples came into my mind."

When asked about Pres. McKay's earlier conception of small temples, Hinckley reportedly said, "I don't know that we ever taught that."

Mark Hofmann suspected, probably with good reason, that Hinkley and the rest of the main leadership, were willing to lie and pay serious hush money to protect the reputation of the church. Hofmann forged documents that played up existing rumors about early church history, calling into question the BoM and the ascension of Brigham Young.

Hinkley bought the documents and kept them secret. Hofmann himself leaked the existence of the documents, forcing Hinkley to make up bull**** rationales about what the documents mean, and why he kept them secret. He pretty much had to donate the forged JS blessing to his son to be next leader to the Community of Christ.

How anybody continued to believe in the Mormon leadership after that is a testament to the power of denial. There may have been leaders as morally corrupt as Hinkley, but there were none where it was more obvious.

I agree, it takes quite some suspension of the critical faculties to be able to continue to "sustain" them. It makes you wonder what else they're hiding in that big vault under the mountain...

It's worth keeping in mind all the leaders after Hinkley saw that decidedly unprophetic fiasco,many saw it up close and personal, but decided to keep promulgating the lie that the leaders have devine (er, divine :-/ ) guidance, and were honest in their dealings. Neither was true.

Can you believe we're being plagued by religion still?
These christians aren't about to give up
It's the same countless fools, go on and on and on and on and
Closest thing to witches I've ever seen
Let's get out the gas and set 'em on fire!

Aw, teach me how to pray, good christian
If it works, you'll all be dead
We'll see the secret to salvation
For me, it's when you're dead, you're dead, you're dead!

I can't believe they're serious
Superstitious, spastic fools
They live for everlasting life
And ruin my life here on earth

They must be so intelligent
To know so much more than me
I wanna take the president, chop off his head
And mail it to them in a garbage bag

Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision

Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision
Hinkley had a vision

Why would anyone want a smaller erection?

More from smaller? Seems like a contra-dick-tion to me.

And they're worried about inches!

At least Roy was an AP, which is a psychological enhancement of sorts.

AP is an acronym for "assistoprez".....which I believe comes in pill form now and is designed to last less than 4 hours.

By small and simple things great penetrations are possible. Just have to have multiples...like with wives.

Hinckley wasn't even sure that he was a prophet. "That's what they call me", he said.

Yup. "I am sustained as such."

I was stunned when he said that. As far as I was concerned, he might just as well have come out and said, "It's all BS."

He wasn't about to let himself be cornered. Weasel.

Those were my sentiments as well. I think Hinckley took us for granted; he didn't think we would care if he dissembled.

I cared.

He was the master of the equivocating answer, wasn't he? Not *technically* lying, but still full of s**t. And Mormons ate that up--the "Snide Remarks" column in the BYU paper poked fun in one of its fake Conference reports at Hinckley's constantly being referred to as "media savvy." They were PROUD of his ability to BS.

"I don't know that we teach that" was pure dishonesty, though, a lie if ever there were one. And the denials of polygamy as well.

Once you are no longer tethered to the truth, all deception is simply a matter of degree.

All deception is simply a matter of degrees of glory, money, and influence.

See Gordon Jump. He can stand for something until he's stepping in it then needs to jump to something else to stand for. He can't stands for shit. Doesn't look good on camera.
