Ted Cox is giving a talk at UC Davis titled “How to Get into Heaven (According to Mormons)” — he’s an ex-Mormon, and is going to summarize Mormon theology. This has apparently annoyed some people. People are pre-emptively protesting that an unbeliever would actually dare to reveal the silly things a Mormon might actually believe. They’re calling it bigotry.
It is one thing for someone to talk about how he came to leave the faith but it is quite another to attack the sacred things that people hold dear. There is no point to this man’s decisions to reveal things that go on in LDS temples and that has nothing to do with his journey. I do not support people desecrating the Koran, the Torah, Rosaries, Crucifixes, or anything associated with the sacredness of the LDS temple. There is a fine line between education and disrespectful gestures done for the sake of shock value.
So there’s a poll. Have fun.
