"Below, I have 2 points to make which I believe are "vital" (imho), or, are of greater importance to the everyday Mormon "mainstreamer" as opposed to better classes of Mormons:
Point 1) I am a long time friend of (Click Here). If anyone within the mainstream thinks that she made up this story, you would be gravely mistaken. She told me this same story 16 years ago, and not one thing has changed in her story! I had no reason to disbelieve her then, nor now. "Better" classess of Mormons (than the mainstream) are far more aware that mortal leaders are not gods, cannot be totally relied on, can in fact "lead astray" exactly as early Mormon leaders taught, Joseph even saying, "the church can fail", (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith), he and other early leaders saying a lot more on that fact or topic! ( Of course, these teachings are never discussed by the mainstream whose literal 'faith' is in mortal leaders personified as gods, i.e. "CANNOT lead astray". If their faith were not predominantly in mortals instead of in God, then they would not come so angry and proud when you suggest that today's leaders are not true prophets. If their faith were truly in God, the idea would not bother them in the least. It doesn't bother me a bit, since I endeavor to "get the truth of ALL THINGS through the power of the Holy Ghost". If you cannot learn to put your faith in the Godhead alone, to verify the truth of all doctrine, then you will in fact be lead astray by the "precepts of men." Mortal leaders do NOT and will never replace the Holy Ghost's manifestations or verifications of truth to the soul, yet the mainstream are well conditioned to blindly follow every spoken word by their mortal false gods they have been conditioned to worship by way of the oft preached precepts of men today within the church! )
Point 2) There are a sub-human class of people (perhaps a different species altogether :oD ) out there who are just simply Mormon 'haters'. They seek to do anything and everything possible to destroy Christ's true church. There is a world of difference between such persons and classes of Mormons better than the mainstream class. THE POINT: Gayle's story does not come from haters of Mormondom, it comes from a class of devoted Mormons better than the mainstream, a class who believe that all things of darkness -- including false doctrine -- should be exposed, exactly as the D&C admonishes us to do! The mainstream had better learn to 'think for themselves', study and put faith in original doctrine, instead of being sheep, shying away from and being embarrased by true original Mormon doctrines, and afraid to appear 'peculiar' to the world around them."
