First of all, a big thanks goes out to Starfleet, he's the guy writing under that same sign-on title over at the PostMormon forums.

What might have come out of a brand-new thread is the concept that LDS kids grow up with plenty of "Cognitive Dissonance", and begin associating Cog-Dis with love and comfort and then even go so far, as to search for Cog-Dis in their lives whenever it is missing.

Holy shitake mushrooms!

Hi joseph's myth.
I remember seeing a documentary on a case that went to trial in which a prosecutor at first thought a suspect was guilty of a crime; then, he discovered evidence which could have completely exonerated the man. What did the prosecutor do then? He did his best to suppress the evidence in question; and, the suspect on trial ended up getting a life sentence, for a crime he did not commit.

When an associate who knew about details which could have cleared the suspect, asked why those details were not being presented in court, the prosecutor answered: "I'm in too deep."

The truth was not held up as a standard to be adhered to at all costs. Because, keeping up appearances, even if it meant ruining other people's lives, was more important.

Along these lines: I'm thinking about the LDS Elders who came over during the summer of 2014; and, how one of them rejected 25 quotes in a row from LDS.org on Joseph's Smith's seer stone use. Perhaps he too was thinking: "I'm in too deep."

Nothing was going to change his testimony; not even the 'best evidence' from trusted sources, because he felt he needed to go about: "Keeping up appearances."

If the Mormon leadership is that mentally ill, to not see or believe history of their deceptive behavior is recorded each and every day that they choose to stay on this path of continued lying and carefully plotted cover-ups and terrible manipulation, why would they stop?

The attempted schmoozing of LDS members with the www.lds.org/essays strongly suggests these nearly criminal activities hardly border on being manipulative and carefully conniving.
