In this enlightening interview, John Larsen explores with John Dehlin and Carah Burrell the concept of superiority within Mormonism and its far-reaching implications. He delves into the various ways in which superiority is ingrained in Mormon theology, scriptures, and practices, shedding light on the inherent biases and discriminatory narratives that persist within the community. From the belief in white skin as inherently superior to the patriarchal nature of the priesthood and the reinforcement of rigid gender roles, John uncovers the damaging effects of these doctrines. He also discusses the patronizing language used to describe those outside the faith, the exploitation of immigrant labor, and the prevalence of fraud among Mormons. Join John Larsen as he unpacks the complex dynamics of superiority within Mormonism and raises critical questions about its impact on individuals and society.

    At about 1hr 15 min, when talking about Doctrines of Salvation, this was actually written by Joseph Fielding Smith, son of Joseph F. Smith. In my opinion, it makes the statements about ‘negros’ even worse because he is a generation more advanced than his pops Joseph F. Smith yet the way he is talking about blacks sounds like he is further behind the times than Joseph F. Smith.
