Today, the hubster, the 16-yo, the 4-yo and i went to our first Ex-mo gathering. It was really fun! We met lots of interesting, intelligent, friendly folk and had great conversation. We plan to attend more, just to be in the midst of lively conversation about the very fascinating topic of the Morgue.
Before we left, we were reading the message boards over at http://www.exmormon.org/ and came across a thread about Mark Hofmann and the counterfeit documents he sold to the LDS Church. Wow, what an interesting situation. A guy counterfeits and forges a butt-load of documents relative to the Mormons, one of them even saying that Joseph Smith had conversations with a SALAMANDER and the "prophet" of the church ate it up and even paid tons of our good tithe money to purchase the fake documents.
What does this say?
It says, that the "prophet" of the church was not a prophet, seer and revelator with the gift of discernment like the church claimed he was, or else he wouldn't have shelled out ass-loads of our hard-earned money to buy such ridiculous documents.
