Mormon Belief in the Digital Age
Thursday, we're talking about what the New York Times has called a "wave of doubt and disillusionment" in the LDS Church. On Sunday, religion correspondent Laurie Goodstein profiled a Mormon leader who had his own crisis of faith as he learned about historical inaccuracies in official Church teachings: things like Joseph Smith's polygamy and DNA evidence that challenges the Book of Mormon. Doug is joined by Goodstein and others for a look at Mormon belief in the digital age and at how the Church is responding.
