Jim Bennett is the author of “A Faithful Reply to the CES Letter.” He is also the son of the late Utah U.S. Senator Bob Bennett.
In Part 2 of a multi-part series with Jim, we discuss in-depth his approach to maintaining belief in the Mormon church AFTER exposure to all of the historical and social problems currently vexing the LDS church, as highlighted in Jeremy Runnell’s groundbreaking book “CES Letter: My Search for Answers to my Mormon Doubts.”
Today’s episode covers:
- Joseph Smith’s polygamy.
- Racism in the Book of Mormon.
- The LDS Church priesthood and temple ban on members of African descent.
- The LDS Church’s teachings regarding LGBTQ members and same-sex marriage.
- What is the role/need for Mormon prophets?
Also, please do not miss my dear friend Bill Reel’s super in-depth interview with Jim if you happened to miss it.
