and I am just seething with rage towards the Morg right now. I was quite familiar with a number of the absolutely despicable things that they had done in order to pass the initiative, but seeing the actual victims of their hate campaign coupled with the disingenuous way that they hid behind front groups to avoid the PR damage is positively maddening.
Overall, I can tell that the vast majority of the documentary is quite factual, but there were a few moments that raised some skeptical alarms. I was wondering if anyone else who knows more about this can confirm or deny:
1) That LDS Bishops actually showed up at members houses with tithing records demanding a certain sum of money from members. Also, that individual members were threatened with disfellowshipment or worse if they did not comply. Morg leadership is pretty evil, but this seems over the top even for them.
2) Frontal lobotomies for homosexuals. I am familiar with BYU's electroshock program, but they were also claiming that frontal lobotomies were administered to some gays as a last ditch effort to cure them. Can anyone verify this.
