Here's the headline:
LDS Church embraces the U.N., but some members see the global group as ‘satanic’.
Subhead: They view the organization not as a vehicle for bringing food, shelter and health care to those in need but rather as an evil force bent on world domination.
That gets right to the point. The program wants to distribute 2 billion shots worldwide by the end of the year. Between the LDS anti-vaxxers, the Sovereign Citizens, the juris naturalis types, and the "OMG, the Blue Helicopters are coming" crowd, lots of heads are exploding. The comments section is choice, and I imagine some of the real winners were deleted.
"In late February, the church gave $20 million to UNICEF for COVID-19 inoculations in a program aimed at distributing 2 billion vaccines by year’s end. At the faith’s General Conference in October, apostle D. Todd Christofferson even talked approvingly about the U.N.’s 2030 goals for “sustainable development.”
All these seem laudable goals, but not all church members are happy about the U.N. ties. Indeed, to many of them, the global body is a communist front, or worse, a symbol of the biblical Antichrist."
The article goes on to mention various UN programs the church has participated in, and the mentions of such programs at GC, and the GAs who have spoken at various UN events/conferences. There is more involvement than I would have guessed.
There was also mention of Ezra T and the Ezra T wannabes in Mormondom. I didn't see Ammon Budy's name. Pity. I take it back. I just did a search and Ammon does get a shout-out in the article.
It is a fairly long and detailed article. It is marked "for subscribers only", so I know this one is paywalled, but here's URL:https://www.sltrib.com/religion/2021/04/25/lds-church-embraces-un/
