Thoughtful and sensitive podcast

This is a great podcast. John is a hero and inspiration for creating and hosting this podcast and I always get so much out of listening to it. The guests are kind, earnest, thoughtful individuals with integrity whose stories can benefit anybody, not just those in the Mormon/Post-Mormon community. Thank you, John, for acknowledging how patriarchy is so strongly interwoven in this religion and how we can all become more aware of this in our attitudes and behaviors. This podcast gives me courage to speak up for what I believe in and what’s right, not just following what I’ve been taught and deferring to others in authority — again, not just a Mormon issue! Thank you, Margi, for all your contributions. I know this podcast is a team effort in your family.

I just want to leave word of CAUTION for new listeners. If your currently having deep questions about your faith in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints this Podcast will only persuade you further to leave the church. “Mormon Stories” is designed to have a very biased opinion against the church. If you honestly want understand all the questions and doubts you might have with the church, seek out your local leaders and missionaries; that’s what there their for. Even though it might not seem like it, they will try to keep a very unbiased opinion about the questions you have. Or if you want a secular opinion, listen to the Norman Podcast. “Mormon Stories” will only make you want to leave the church even more that you want to. Trust me, I’ve done my fare share of listening.

1168: Accused Voyeur/Bishop Steven Murdock: A Case Study in How the Mormon Church Ignores/Covers up Abusive Behavior, Leaving Future Victims Vulnerable

Podcast cover
Read more

SUMMARY: While I am pleased to finally see extensive news coverage of Mormon Bishop/Stake High Councilman Steven Murdock’s voyeurism story, I feel strongly that the reporters are missing the most important part of this story: basically, that Mormon church leadership explicitly knew of Bishop Murdock’s history of sexual harassment as early as 2017, but chose to ignore the reports, kept him in as bishop for several months after the firing, and eventually “promoted” Steven Murdock to the Stake High Council in spite of at least three different direct reports regarding his pattern of behavior.

The following report comes from personal interviews with over 20 individuals who have personal relationships with Steven Murdock, either as friends, co-workers, neighbors, or ward/stake members.

1164: Anthony Miller - On Thoughtful and Graceful Reconstruction After Mormon Orthodoxy Pt. 6

Podcast cover
Read more

Anthony Miller is widely known across post- and progressive- Mormon internet communities for his thoughtful contributions on faith, spirituality, religion, scripture, and relationships. Anthony has presented at multiple Sunstone Symposium sessions in the past and at this Summer's Thrive Conference where he gave a presentation titled "Growing Beyond Grief" which we hope to feature on a future episode of Mormon Stories / The Gift of the Mormon Faith Crisis. Anthony has also given past interviews with Gina Colvin's A Thoughtful Faith and appeared on multiple episodes with Bill Reel and Allan Mount (linked on Anthony's blog) unpacking the Gospel Topic Essays.

On these episodes with Mormon Stories, we hope to dig deep into Anthony's personal Mormon story including:

*What he calls his "literal faith" in the truth claims of the Mormon Church, including using his patriarchal blessing as the literal guidebook for the choices and direction he pursed in life *How his faith began to unravel after he discovered the LDS-published Gospel Topic Essays *How he sought community and healing during his faith crisis, including the founding of a Mormon Spectrum group *How he deconstructed his past beliefs and is reconstructing a sense of spirituality after his faith crisis

....and so much more.

We hope our listeners will draw from Anthony's rich experience in learning to navigate a mixed faith marriage, communicating across faith and belief, reconstructing a sense of spirituality after a faith crisis, and creating support communities for people inside and outside the edge of Mormonism.
