    PDF/EPUB Moroni and the Swastika PDF Ó Moroni and Kindle - Î nessville.me Î moroni mobile, swastika mobile, Moroni and epub, Moroni and the Swastika EpubThe author opens the book by explaining that the impetus for the research was his stepson learning about persecuted groups of the Nazis during WWII and asking how the LDS Church fared in the circumstances This is a uestion I've had since a young kid in awe of Anne Frank and incredibly interested in this time of history The answer to that is complex and even the evidence put forth in this book can't definitely answer the uestion without a lot of caveats A very uncomfortable narrative is put forth of faithful members who were ardent Hitler supporters of church leaders in Utah who ignored Jewish converts pleas for help and a church community that as a whole was not bothered by the Nazis to cease meeting or change teachings Teachings were altered preemptively Exceptions to the rule are made of church members who sought to help their Jewish neighbors or uietly protested the Nazi regime by pointedly not becoming party members Helmuth Hubener the Mormon resister to t

    PDF/EPUB Moroni and the Swastika PDF Ó Moroni and Kindle - Î nessville.me Î moroni mobile, swastika mobile, Moroni and epub, Moroni and the Swastika EpubBeing a well read ex mormon I thought I knew just about all the DIRT on the Mormon church as was available however this book disclosed just how awful the church's actions were during WWII basically how inspired they were to flagrantly hop into bed with the Nazi Party DisgustingWould God that all the Mormons would read this book and know how misled they've been by their prophets seers and revelatorsThe coverage of how effectively they've covered up their own history was also very well coveredI just love Thomas S Monson's comment on the revelations that were being made in the 1980s of his church's acts during the second world war Monson snapped Who knows what was right or wrong then? I don't know what we accomplish by dredging these things up and trying to sort them out from and article published in NYT and Los Angeles Times p327To answer THE PROPHET'S uestion I'd say I've learned a whole lot of things you didn't want me to know that's for sure Interes
