    Thank you Mr. Kincaid. Thank you for taking the time and writing about this.

    The comments online at SLTRIB are very revealing. It does my heart good to read the comments, which reference exgaywatch and Dr. Throckmorton.

    It’s this very blog (BTB) which deserves kudos for everyone’s analysis and editorial. The power of the internet can be mightier than the sword.

    Sincerely, again, thank you.

    I put a comment on the site regarding Collins’s claim to have never made the hardwired statement. I hope they publish it.

    This is something like the 18th instance over the years in which researchers have objected to such distortions of their work.

    Time for an updated list?

    If it isn’t in the Book of Mormon, The Pearl of Great Price, or Doctrine and Covenants, it is only false writing anyway. They can feel free to quote and misquote at will when it comes to “non-scriptural” (from their point of view) stuff.

    Quotemining is the refuge of pseudoscientific liars everywhere. They must teach it somewhere.

    And to Salt Lake Tribune’s credit they offer this rebuttal:

    The three authors of this opinion piece say pretty much what Timothy Kincaid and BTB has said.

    Please note: Two of the authors are from BYU. Will they be excommunicated or their professor emeritus status be affected in any way?

    Cowboy,

    Actually, I think the three more closely mirror the thinking of the LDS leadership (or at least the direction of the public position) than do the reorientation group.

    Wouldn’t you agree?

    I think what these three authors take a contra issue with Mormon leader Boyd K. Packer’s assertion. I think most Mormons believe in what the reorientation group said in last week’s opinion piece.
