Mormon-ism and the many states of grace
"the religion making business"
I was disturbed by your interview
with Robert Millet and his notion of "the religion making business."
Krista Tippett sent one slow-pitch softball after another for Mr. Millet to bunt
and run with. When speaking of the 1st Revelator of the Mormon Dynasty you make
no mention of the basic socialist underpinnings of this Religion Making Business
and from whence it came. Mormons subscribe to a socialist notion for themselves
while insisting the "Gentile" population must play on a hard scrabble
scrum line. You serve up little background on the Spiritualist Movement of the
time with regard to influences on Joe Smith's "many visions"and revisions
to his visions.
You said nothing of the Pyramid Schemes: of land dealing,
counterfeit money, invasion by conquest, war and assinations; there was nothing
on that famous visitation by John The Baptist along with Christ's Apostles and
of course the Quid Pro Quo of trading Polygamy for territorial recognition. There
was no mention of the Mormon Pigmentocracy. Why?
You let Millet wax on pre-existence
and post-sustenance without touching on "the nuts and bolts of Mormon Heaven,"
and there are lots of bolts to be slapped home and nuts to be turned; and, for
the record, there are many accountants in Mormon Heaven.

I grew up as a gentile in severe Mormon Country, southern Idaho, and I can testify
to the vicious nature of the "Great Mormon Organ."

I was told by a Mormon Elder, "The Earth is like a rubber ball and will bounce

Robert Millet and The Mormon Religion-making Business:
Mormon Theolator: As in the long line of Revelators, Dr. Millet
made the revelatory statement regarding his religion. "We are in the Religion
Making Business" is as close to an authentic revelation as there has
been uttered regarding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As in
a Corporate Sporting event the idea is to win at any cost. Religion Making requires
a team fleet of foot and a rule book that states as its first axiom; to win at
any cost, it's Grow or die. Grow team grow;
Team Mormon goes for the gold in the Business of making Religion
for the Religion Making Business.

Millet on the Religion Making Business
in his interview with
Krista Tippett on 1/27/08.
Robert Millet Waxes on profligate religious
"I don't think we can ever transcend Joseph
Ms. Tippett: But that picture, you know, could not stand
in greater contrast to the picture that Mormons, Latter-day Saints of the
picture that people have of Mormon families, of Mormon communities, right? Of
this, this community that you describe in the beginning, this way of life.
Mr. Millet: Well, I think that's right.
Ms. Tippett: And so I, you
know, I guess I wonder is there something that happens in a religious experience
in this religious experience where the lived religion somehow transcends
this person of Joseph Smith, who, who gave rise to it?
I don't think we can ever transcend Joseph Smith or consider him to be a valued
personality, but now we'll move on. I don't think you'll see that among believers
in the faith, because there are too many other things that came from him that
are the reasons why we do what we do and we are what we are. That there are unanswered
questions, to be sure. That there are things that I'm as anxious as the next guy
to learn more detail on, I really want to know. But in the interim, it really
doesn't, doesn't trouble me. We're in the religion-making business, as you
intimated earlier, only for a short time, I mean, compared to the Christian church,
which has been at this for a couple of millennia. We're about halfway to Nicaea.
And so, and so in that sense I remember a very tender moment. I was speaking
with I've been invited to the Salt Lake Theological Seminary, basically
an Evangelical seminary, to discuss a book I had done on Jesus. And they had read
it, and they wanted me to come and just respond to questions. And it was, it was
a very enjoyable couple of hours. The very last question that was asked by one
of my friends there was this one. He said, 'Bob, what can we do for you?' And
I, I wasn't ready for that question. I said, 'What do you mean?' He said, 'What
can we, as Evangelicals, do for our Mormon friends?' And I, I guess my mind could
have gone a hundred different ways, but what I came back with was this. I said,
'Boy, I appreciate you asking that. I don't think I've ever been asked that.'
But, but I said, 'Try this. Cut us a little slack, will you? Give us a little
time. We're in the religion-making business, and this takes time. It takes
centuries. And, and trying to explain the faith and articulate the faith,
that doesn't come over night. We've really only been about that for 20 or 30
Robert Millet makes the distinction between Mormons
and Christians in a flourish of apologetics.
"We're in the religion-making
business, as you intimated earlier, only for a short time, I mean, compared to
the Christian church, which has been at this for a couple of millennia."
Robert Millet states to the Mormon Enemy, Evangelicals, that Mormons have decided
to become Christian only in the last 20 or 30 years.
"We're in the
religion-making business, and this takes time. It takes centuries. And, and
trying to explain the faith and articulate the faith, that doesn't come over night.
We've really only been about that for 20 or 30 years."
Mormon Pres. Joseph Fielding Smith
declared that the story of Joseph Smith is so important that Mormonism "must
stand or fall" with it, it needs to be examined carefully. He also said if
Joseph Smith's claims were built upon fraud, it would be easy to find errors and
contradictions. The following is a thought experiment regarding Joseph Smith's
Millet wants it both ways,
he apologizes for Mormon loopiness as Mormons are juvenile and only came to Christianity
lately. Mormons, having claimed the True Faith, after having stolen
tenants and doctrine from everywhere, from Egyptology to Frontier Magic and the
Torah, including Science Fiction, now Mormons claim they need several hundred
more years to sort out the kinks and get it right. I guess Millets apology
would be that this Religion Making stuff is far tricker than we imagined,
we just need to muck about a bit more and well be as main-stream as you
wish, we are only in it for the money. Gosh its the religion making Business
and Mormon Branding just wants its Market Share.
As I read Millet's
excuses, I couldn't help but imagine him wriggling in he dust with his dog-eared
Book or Mormon, wrinkling his suit while his upper lip sweats profusely.
persist with the Persistence of Doubt
On The Religion Making Business: The Mormon Brand
If we are to read Professor Robert Millet as uttered, we would assume, the expert
in 'religious understanding' has a cynical view of this world and the religions
that here reside, Millet is convinced, "the Business of Religion" requires
only time and a priesthood willing to go the extra mile to create authentic Mormon
Businesses Modeled for Religion Making. Millet has set his stars on the Latter-day
Awakenings of the Mormons, or, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as
his brand. His faith has declared the fully reinvested church by Joseph Smith
as it was intended before we humans mucked it up..
Professor Millet states
as articles of faith, Mormons claim all ground not previously occupied and those
spaces the"Enemy," Christian Evangelicals inhabit too.
apologetics for theological youth as an excuse for fumbled balls and the penalties
of clipping, off sides, etc. Millet pleads, "We're in the religion-making
business" and only now "halfway to Nicaea," he says referring
to the fourth-century council at which the New Testament canon was finally formalized
and many core Christian doctrines clarified, authoritatively, for the first time.
So Mormons have several hundred more years of fumbling around with the Religion
Making Business before Mormon Deities reach maturity. With bated breath and much
trembling, we can hardly wait till they get it right and pierce the veil into
the radience of full theological and dogmatalogic maturity.

Mormon Perception Management
the way, throughout your posting you chose to misidentify Robert Millet.
long as The Mormons are committed to using unreliable narrators for spokespersons
in the Religion Making Business there will be unreliable messages sent. Only the
elect are able to see beyond the message sent to be divined as
truth by the faithful.
Robert Millets comment ""We're
in the religion making business," bothered me quite a bit. I'm sure the evangelicals
used it as proof that it is a man-made religion.
Even evangelicals fall
prey to this axiom: From the beginning, through all time with strength in the
loins, all religion is made by man its called the Religion
And the apologetic Reply is:
In a sense Millet
is correct, we are indeed in the "religion making business" if by that
he means we help shape and forge an idea of individuality and community, infusing
life with meaning and direction, etc.
Yes infusing life with meaning
and direction in the Religion Making Business.
Was Millet speaking from
the bowels of the Church? Was the Religion Making Business a gaff,
or a mirror into the land of Oz?
Excuse me, but, Free Speech is fundamentally
at odds with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. From the invention
of Mormonism, free speech has tangled with the Latter-Day Saints, their prophet
was executed for suppression of free speech; by the destruction of the Newspaper,
Expositor, his lot was cast, and it came to pass, General Joe was
consumed by hubris, the arrogance of power.

Mormons' take umbrage at the perception
of being mocked, however Mormons take no interest in self scrutiny to divine the
source of this sacred act, mockery that is. When mounting an indefensible preponderant
of how things work, Mormons forgot to consider, perhaps, for the sake of argument,
existence is still perplexing and we are making it up as we go along. That's
why "THE MORMONS" have to have a "LIVING PROPHET" so when
things get sticky when moving on in time there is a fall-back position. Mormon
Mockery is born from envy. Gentiles can't understand why Mormons suspend all empirical
evidence to embrace ignorance; ignorance being the source of all evil (SATAN).
Rational thought drops out of Mormon Tribal Theology It's all
Gentiles envy the Mormon embrace of willful ignorance; it's
so easy when you don't have to think. Gentiles know it hurts to think, Mormons

Citing Kristor Stendahls three rules for religious understanding,

Interreligious Diplomacy Mormon Chapter
2010 Inaugural Conference University
of Southern California
June 11th 12th, 2010 In response to increasing
acrimony in public discourse, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
recently affirmed that the moral basis of civility is the Golden Rule, taught
by a broad range of cultures and individuals, perhaps most popularly by Jesus
Christ: And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise
(Luke 6:31). This ethic of reciprocity reminds us all of our responsibility toward
one another and reinforces the communal nature of human life. (The
Mormon Ethic of Civility,
LDS Newsroom, October 16, 2009)
It is good that Mormons desire to seek reciprocity, however,
what can the mormons give in return?Well, how was Mormon Diplomacy? It's July
7, 2010 and so far not a peep from Robert Millet on Mormon/Christian cohabitation
of our planet. The conference was designed to explore various perspectives and
methods for thinking about Latter-day Saints among the faiths and cultures of
world. Its aim will be to connect theology with practice in allowing space for
Mormons to think about the activity of inter-religious dialogue and the possibility
of mutual transformation. The recent statement by the Mormon Church entitled
for a Diversity of Faiths opens up new possibilities for rethinking
other religions and ideologies and what might be learned from them. Citing Kristor
Stendahls three rules for religious understanding, the statement encourages
us to leave room for holy envy by finding elements in other
faiths to emulate. It goes on to affirm that Latter-day Saints accept
all sincere believers as equals in the pursuit of faith and in the great work
of serving humanity. This ethic of reciprocity reminds us all of our responsibility
toward one another and reinforces the communal nature of human life. (The
Mormon Ethic of Civility, LDS Newsroom, October 16, 2009)

Answers to be Questioned
you need to know, the Easy Steps to the Mormon Eternal Progression
it's easy, it's fun and there are lots of papers to sign.
MORMON HEAVEN is
a fairly straight forward affair, not too complicated but not too simple either.
Mormons know most religions make heavenly attainment too simple to be believed.
First, in order to get into the Mormon Afterlife one must pre-exist. Pre-existence
is requisite for moving forward. Once you preexist you are ready to engage in
Mortal Life; for many of us this is the existential part. Mortal Life is where
one learns about how to get what you want; all the other places the human spirit
must go to be among the elect.
Of course as we mortals do, we die and that's
when stuff really starts to happen to the Mormon Spirit..
Aside from leaving
your now useless mortal body, your spirit is shunted onto a new body that looks
just like the old one but also just like all others too. You float down the long
cloudy hall to one of two doors.
There is the Fast Track
If luck is with you, and your report card is a 'C' or
above, your spirit moves directly to Spirit Paradise and Righteousness.
There is the Slow Track Spirit Prison
not so lucky and Mormon Spirit Spies rat on you, you are shunted to Spirit
Prison, Unrighteousness, which for many is not fun and requires many examinations
by frowning Spirit Testers challenging your faith, but with perfect obedience,
one can rebound from this setback. This is likened to Purgatory for evangelicals.
For most Mormons this may condemn one to the Kingdom of the Devil.
But where do we go from there?
So either in Spirit Paradise or Spirit
Prison there is a lot of waiting and tribulation until the
decide to pronounce the FINAL JUDGMENT.
When judged worthy, one passes
through the veil into Mormon Afterlife. One is rematerialized into flesh and blood
to propagete beings on other solar systems with the requisite spirit wife (wives).
Comprised of several Kingdoms, depending on the mood of the Spirit Examiners,
one can expect one of three prized positions in Mormon Heaven.
Celestial Kingdom: a cool place and nothing to sneer at. Many mormons are
here and they are relieved and happy with their lot to be cast as part of the
placement at all.
2nd. Terrestial Kingdom: a very groovy kingdom
with lots of clouds and glitter. Most Mormons here in the Middle Kingdom, a contrived
space between the two other heavens designed to comfort the Lumpen folk..
3rd. Telestial Kingdom: a very elevated space in space with many
Select Mormons and lots of clouds, but on a clear day you can see forever. Once
obtained by whatever means necessary devotees will be secure from any more pestering
by church authorities forever; one is free to bonk and procreate with lusty abandon
to build your own personal creation myth with all your spirit-wives.
The Kingdom of the Devil: Satan is in charge and it's just like Hell. perpetual
misery, sweaty and stinky, and there is no time for smoke breaks or jokes and
the music is ghastly. *
So the tally of
spiritual places one may find oneself are seven.
Most Mormons forget to count
pre-existence but according to our ledger pre-existence must count for something,
while not heaven, it seems to be a state of suspension with no pain and no performance
expectations so in its own way it too is heavenly.
After Mortal Life is
finished, there are two purgatories, fast track and slow track.
big event, FINAL JUDGMENT, you, as Mormon, will find yourself in one of four slots.
Celestial Kingdom, Terrestial Kingdom, or Telestial Kingdom.
all the waiting, trials and testing you fail to sway the Spirit Testers, you hit
the wall and are condemned to Mormon Hell or The Kingdom of the Devil,
but you are still a Mormon forever.
From that point all Mormon Spirits exist
in a levitating steady state for eternity, but for all the procreation one gets
to perform in Mormon Heaven; one is duty bound to populate the Universe with yet
more Mormons and on and on.
Mormon Hell: There is no reference to procreation in Mormon Hell but
it must be going on behind the Devil's back, or perhaps Satan is entertained by
grand copulating heaps of fallen Mormons. It follows, some perverse logic would
imply that Lucifer would love to engage in smarmy sex fests with millions of Mormons
in Mormon Hell. For certain Satan would love to moderate much discussion on how
loopy Mormon Heaven must be, how boring it must be, what with all the singing,
courtly ritual, clouds and stuff.
As Mark Twain said, "Heaven is for
the climate but Hell is for the company."
It has never been revealed
whether Lucifer is a Gentile, just another Fallen Mormon or Jew..
Prophet and the Philosopher
contemporary of Joseph Smith, spoke, after a long dissertation by the prophet
Joseph spoke of his Religion and its Afterlife. The acquaintance,
Mark Twain, listened patiently then said: "Sounds nice but you must know

I bothered to follow your discussion from Robert Millet and his apologetic discourse

in a kid that, with hormones raging, got the WORD from some angel and then was

carried forward becomes more and more problematic that must be admitted.

when the mormons take such liberties with reality, their conjecture is viewed
by the naive, the less informed, the superstitious as an authentic avenue for
salvation for themselves and wayward relatives.
When liberty is aligned with
obedience there are assumptions by the unwashed that lead to other, much more

TRIBUNE: SALT LAKE CITY, SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 31, 1887
for killing Joe Smith
Law recounts: "Joseph Smith having sent Rockwell to kill Governor
Boggs. Let me tell you, that Joe Smith, told me the fact himself. The words were
substantially like this, "I sent Rockwell to kill Boggs, but he missed him,
it was a failure; he wounded him instead of sending him to Hell." Governor
Boggs was out of office but revenge smelled sweet for Joe Smith.
Mormon Assassin, "Rockwell was the lackey of the house. He used to comb and
shave Joseph, blackened his boots and drove his carriage. He would have done anything
Joe wanted him to do. I never saw a horse or carriage belonging to Rockwell which
you say he got from Joseph for the attempt to kill Boggs."
conclude, Governor Ford was to take no chances with Mormon Assassins. Ford had
promised Missouri's Governor Boggs protection but failed, the attempted murder
by Rockwell was revenge by Joe Smith's Plot of assassination for the Mormon War

Millet, Professor of Religious Understanding states in
'Getting At The Truth'
the general authorities do not teach something today, it is not part of
our doctrine today. That does not, however, mean that a particular teaching
is untrue. A teaching may be true and yet not a part of what is
taught and emphasized by the Church today. In fact, if the Brethren do
not teach it today, if it is not taught directly in the standard works,
or if it is not found in our correlated curriculum, whether it is true
or not may actually be irrelevant."

more good works in heaven
Yes, the Mormon Bureaucracy carries on
in heaven. And yes you are being watched; the gatekeepers and sacred rituals confirm
each step through the mazes of heaven long lines for the chosen,
lots of waiting, but the wait is part of the test designed to authenticate Perfect
Obedience and Mormon Purity of Faith.
There are certificates to be stamped,
lists to check and examinations of faith. The trials are designed to confirm solidarity
and unquestioning belief in the prophet and his hereafter in the everafter. It's
not easy to wend one's way through the seven levels of celestial radiance, long
queues, but for "perfect obedience," the rewards are huge in the religion

"the Religion Making Business"
One might Ask?
might ask why pick on the Mormons and that's a fair question.
One might say because, as a metaphor, it's easy. When shaping a short treatise
on self deception to model all organized religion why not choose a no brainer
. . .
Mormonism is "in the religion making business," just another
franchise like Starbucks but without the coffee.
Do the math.

If I were interested in working within

I would petition to

I would petition to have all 1381 entries of "And it came to pass" altered
to "Once upon a time."

A Mormon Scholar can choose precious phrases in the Book of Mormon
and extract and insert "Once upon a time" where needed and demonstrated
the more correct effect.
A Petition for Change could be taken to the Mormon
Quorum for consideration. After all it's merely a slight modification to the text,
the sacred content remains intact.
It seems a group of dedicated Ex-Mormons
could masterfully insert a Protestant infusion of new blood and help create more
traction for more Mormon Religious Traditions. We know the Nicean Conference in
332 A.D. did not take place in a vacuum. More religious tradition is more better
in the religiom making business.
The Mormons need new and creative revelators
for the faith to grow, why can't Ex-Mormons help out with religious tradition
by creating revelations too?
Mormons need a New Latter-day
It's been over one hundred sixty years since the Mormon
revelations have received a messianic boost. It's time for a Present-day Latter-day
saint to burst on the scene to direct doctrine, reveal revelations and define
Mormon Market Strategy.

a Pubescent Myth Maker to be struck dumb and possessed by revelation. By the majesty
of Yahweh or Eloheim or Jehovah or God these things are possible through Divine
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints craves a new creator
(NeoRevelator) to direct the Religion Making Business beyond the old infirmed
Mormon Prophets, like Hyrum and Brigham, even Kimball . It is known through the
Melchizedek Priesthood, Mormons have exclusive use of the theologic equivolent
of Royal Jelly to smear on Potential Candidate Prophets to grow into fledged and
flying prophetic radiance. Religious Tradition must "reveal the New Mormon
Prophet for all the world to see -- so it will there for all to see."
Ex-Jew and Ex-Mormon, Stanley U. Goldburg
Joseph Fielding Smith,
the tenth LDS prophet said:
as it is called, must stand or fall on the story of Joseph Smith. He was either
a prophet of God, divinely called, properly appointed and commissioned, or he
was one of the biggest frauds this world has ever seen. There is no middle ground.
If Joseph Smith was a deceiver, who willfully attempted to mislead the people,
then he should be exposed; his claims should be refuted, and his doctrines shown
to be false, for the doctrines of an impostor cannot be made to harmonize in all
particulars with divine truth. If his claims and declarations were built upon
fraud and deceit, there would appear many errors and contradictions, which would
be easy to detect."
Bluster and Buzz
with the usual suspects (9/22/08)
Apologetics postings by Lou Midgley and Dan Peterson in the Mormon Bloggernacle
are benign examples of what I mean. I wish there were more discussions on our
LDS Psyops and the newly developed LDS, Leaflet Delivery System and its ability
to win the hearts and minds of more gentiles. Bickering over Apologetics Strategy
is useless when there is a wonderful wide world of gentiles to convert. We must
forget about mainstream aspirations and focus on LDS Psyops through our LDS Leaflet
Distribution Systems. We need more Predator Drone UAV aircraft for payload delivery.
The future of the church hangs in the balance. Apologetics
is a lost cause; it's impossible to explain Mormonism, it must be felt. The Mormon
Spirit is fragile and gentiles are so crass; they lack the sensitivity Mormons
require for faith to grow, but with our LDS (leaflet delivery system) the full
fury of our perception management potential can be realized for more Mormon Converts.
We need more UAV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and larger UAV, Vehicle-Payloads for
better leaflet saturation over target areas. Our future lies in effective use
of our Leaflet Distribution Systems.

Manichean Mormon Fantasy
for Mormon Apostles:
Mormon religious reservation is the ability to reserve the truth when truth might
be inconvenient to church and affiliates. Church authorities, armed with clerical
reservation can omit, redact or otherwise obfuscate whatever inconvenience it
might find to be damaging to the authority of the priesthood. Acting on the malleability
of truth allows the elect to endure for the sake of religious authority by lying
whenever deemed to be in Mormon self-interest.
