John C. Bennett and Homosexuality in Nauvoo – Pt 3 w/ LDS Discussions Ep. 51 | Ep. 1864

Download MP3

The team discusses controversial allegations of sexual impropriety against Joseph Smith and John C. Bennett in Nauvoo, the existence of the Danites as a violent vigilante group, Bennett’s subsequent exposes of Mormonism after his excommunication, the succession crisis and various Mormon offshoots after Joseph Smith’s death, and questions around the authenticity of Mormon truth claims such as the golden plates. There is debate around the accuracy of some historical sources, as well as acknowledgment that early Mormonism contained cult-like elements such as polygamy and unquestioning loyalty tests.
