Mormonism LIVE: 043: Modern Day Mormon Danites

In tonight’s Episode RFM and Bill Reel discuss the Danites in Mormonism, Who they were and what their purpose was. Then They quickly shift to showing how that same modus operandi is at work today inside Modern Mormonism through the SCMC, and other people and processes that work to ensure that believing members are kept at arms length from people, voices, and information that is both accurate and contradictory to the inaccurate but faithful dominant narrative.
