More General Conference recap, plus - the Church drops its MTC plans; Billy Graham decides Mormonism is not a cult; & Vanity Fair talks church and politics.
Holland’s Inner Anger

We’re back with part 2 of our General Conference recap, as well as some other news:

Marlin K. Jensen is released during General Conference, and the Church loses a progressive pragmatist with a flair for conflict resolution.

The Church backs off on its construction of a new nine-story building at the Provo MTC. How will this affect the changes in missionary work announced during General Conference? Victory to the people of Provo!

BYUtv has a new comedy show. It’s sort of OK.

Reverend Billy Graham meets with Mitt Romney and promptly removes The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from his list of “cults.” How kind. Pat Billy on the back, but not too hard or he might die.

Vanity Fair publishes an interesting – if flawed – piece on how the Church has been involved in politics from one time to another.

  1. Farewell to Jensen
  2. Church drops MTC plans
  3. Billy Graham loves Mormons
  4. The Church’s influence in politics
