A collection of RadioWest conversations about LDS history, faith, and culture.
Monday, we’re exploring MormonLeaks, an online platform where LDS Church employees and insiders can leak private Church documents. Nothing all that incriminating or even interesting has come out yet. The videos and papers have basically shown the LDS Church to be a byzantine bureaucracy run much like a business. But MormonLeaks founder Ryan McKnight says he’s not looking for scandals, just transparency. We’ll talk about the leaks and what they reveal about Mormonism today.
