So I was wandering around Outer Blogness, and found a bunch more exmo blogs to add to my sidebar!!! Man, there are a lot of exmo blogs all of the sudden!!! How did that happen?
I wish I had the time to go around and contemplate them all and leave a witty and/or insightful comment on every one of them!!! If only I didn't have this pesky nine-to-five job occupying all of my valuable blogging time!!!
Plus I hit upon a stash of borderline and heretical Mormon blogs. Now everyone who is following my blog knows that I'm all about sparking a friendly discussion between current and former Mormons in order to promote understanding. So of course I was pretty happy to find this bunch, and you can rest assured that -- time permitting -- I'll be stopping by their realm with helpful commentary just as I do for my Bloggernacle friends. Since they don't really fit into "Outer Blogness" or "the Bloggernacle" I made a special section for them with an extra-special disclaimer!!!
(By the way, anyone who wants to link to my blog is more than welcome to do so... *hint, hint*)
The one blog I can't figure out though is this one: Latter Day Saints.
This link was posted to RfM as an exmo blog. Yet it claims to be an official LDS site!!! So which is it? It doesn't seem like a pro-LDS blog since I would expect a pro-Mo site to focus on happy eternal families baking cookies together like in a Norman Rockwell painting etc., whereas this one is all about airing all of the most serious LDS doctrinal issues. Yet it follows up with the standard LDS apologetic responses and nothing more...
So I'm wondering -- is it some sort of stealth-anti-Mormon site? Hoping to get unsuspecting social Mormons to wander in by accident and say: "Wait a minute... You mean the original Book of Abraham papyrus is in the church vault? And scholars have studied it and even LDS scholars agree that it is a set of ordinary Egyptian funeral documents that have nothing to do with Abraham and are not even remotely from the right time period? And that's the best the church apologists can do to explain this away???"
So by my reckoning, either it's a pro-LDS site that tried to trick the RfMers or it's an anti site trying to pass itself off as pro... Either way there appears to be some treachery involved...
Anyone else have any insights on this?
