At least according to this press release they will.
I generally don’t like promoting stuff from brazen atheist activists like David Silverman, but I really just wanted an excuse to post the image above. (For those who don’t know the reference, it’s from Futurama, one of my favorite animated shows.)
I also wanted to draw attention to how this article unintentionally highlights the craven hypocrisy of atheists like Silverman.
The pressure from the Mormon church to stay silent about doubt is fundamentally immoral—it is bad for the members and for society at large, benefiting only the church and its hierarchy.
Yes, I remember Elder Jeffrey R. Holland’s passionate plea during the April 2013 General Conference for Church members to shut up and keep silent about their doubts.
And who can forget President Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s disgusting disregard for members of the Church who have honest doubts and questions during his October 2013 General Conference address?
You know what’s really “fundamentally immoral” Mr. Silverman? Lying about what other people actually believe.
Then there’s this gem.
On Sunday, April 6th, Atheists of Utah and the national nonprofit American Atheists will co-host a Salt Lake City event during which Mormons intending to leave the Latter-Day Saints Church are invited to hand-deliver their resignation letters en masse. The event coincides with the semi-annual Mormon 2014 General Conference.
1. Way to definitely not turn this into a shameless publicity stunt.
2. Who exactly do they plan on “hand-delivering” their resignation letters to?
Great, so this General Conference we’re going to have: (1) street preachers, (2) atheists, (3) Ordain Women.
Anyone else want to jump in there while we’re at it? Now’s your chance!
