How Do You Sleep At Night?

A good friend and loyal supporter of Mormon411 sent this in. To those who actively cover up the lie: how do you sleep at night?

There's so much about the Mormon church that proves it false, proved it's founder was a liar, cheat, con-man, and pedophile. I don't think it would be a far stretch to say that the man hours and cost that has gone into covering up the information above is incalculable. It got me thinking. It's easy for TBM's to say it's the evil one putting all these lies out there. The adversary has polluted the minds of men. I believe they say this in part because of fear. Fear not only that their faith is wrong, but what being wrong really means:

It means it wasn't the adversary polluting the minds of men. It wasn't the adversary putting lies out there. It would mean that the very people that TBM's give their time and money to have been behind the deception and laughing all the way to the bank.

I'll break it down simply: The leadership of LDS Inc. would never get their hands dirty. No that would never do for men of god. (Sarcasm intended) It would be much simpler to have others do it, others with a vested interest. Others that would stand to lose everything if it ever came out that they helped cover up the truth.

It's these "others" that fascinate me.

When profiling a crime, detectives try to get inside the mind of the criminal. Well, I would say what these "others" do is absolutely criminal. Can anyone imagine what it must be like to cover up something that proves your faith false? Not just your faith, but the faith of your family and your ancestors, some of whom may have given their lives for the church? How do you cover up something like that and still look your family in the eye? How do you still look at yourself in the mirror? How do you tell your children to say their prayers before bed? What must you think about the afterlife? It's not like these others can just quit and go to another church.

These others must literally live their whole lives with the knowledge of what they've done. And if they are okay with it, what kind of person is that? And just think all you TBMs out there, that's the worst kind of person: a fanatic. Cults love fanatics; they'll do anything. Just ask the Manson family.

Just who are these people who actively hide and cover up church secrets?


Some of them do it with the intention of actively deceiving. Some of them do it because their careers and reputations will be destroyed if they don't (under direction of the highest church authorities).

And to those who are forced to do it, I'm sure they hate it. But do they have a choice? If you live in Mormon land and you disobey a direct order from god, what future do you have? They obey because they have families to feed.

We all know Boyd K. Packer is blatently anti-truth. Said he, "I have a hard time with historians, because historians idolize the truth."

To Packer (and the rest of the church leaders), if a lie makes the church look good, then print it in bold! If you get caught in the lie, let the apologetics department make your excuses for you.

The bottom line is those who truly deserve the shame are ultimately the ones at the top. They are the ones with the power to come clean.

So far, not one single authority has had the balls...
