  1. Ugh what a freak show, all connected to the Benson/Skousen school of thought.

    To paraphrase Matthew: By their fruit-loops ye shall know them.

  2. Thank you for increasing my love for President Benson. I think he would also turn over in his grave watching election interference from the Obama administration, a fake Russia investigation, and fake impeachment. All well proven and documented now. It goes both ways. Say what you want about Benson, he was a true patriot and loved his country. Love the man. Agree about Trump, but after watching what Democrats have done for the last four years, it helps me understand Trump better. I did not vote for him last time, and still don’t like the man, but Democrats have lost all respect from me. Thanks for a great discussion, even if you do lump all people on the right and try to make us all look crazy.

  3. Professor Harris may be the best, most engaging storyteller that Mormon Stories has ever had.

    I can’t wait to buy his books. I love these Benson episodes!

  4. The import of Dr. Harris’s work will span farther than any of our lives. I’ve listened to Dr. Harris several times before, but these long interviews with Dehlin provide more depth than any of other available source. It’s analogous to a full evening of insightful conversation. Very well done.

    Great job John relating our cultural background to today’s Utah perspective. While I had today’s Utah political climate in the back of my mind across both parts of the interview, Dr. Harris offered additional insight at the end that we would have otherwise missed.

  5. A follow up confirming observation: I just read a Facebook post from a young man who was born after Benson; but, who cited to the October 1979 talk by Benson entitled “A witness and a warning” to substantiate his categorization of democrats as communists; and to support his view of Trump. Benson’s falsehoods have a far reaching affect and impressionable and uneducated minds.

    Very good interviews.

  6. Could not the GA’s have said that they prayed about President Benson, and they got the ‘revelation’ that he should not be the next prophet?
