99 90 percent of people who are not LDS, identify it as a cult

This is to the lady who wrote the message above, and clearly this new cult of the 144 thousand is located somewhere in the “scripture” of the Book of Mormon. Not saying Mormons arnt great people, I’m just saying it’s a cult by almost every definition. And this new cult was born from Mormonism. Lastly I thought he did a pretty great job differentiating the difference between these crazy people and normal LDS family’s.

Trash

This podcast is trash, it’ll do in a pinch, but the way the story is framed and told is so unnecessarily salacious. Dateline is always gonna be cheesy af but this dudes narration and interview style is soooo unbearable and gross.

If you want a really good book/audio about fundamentalist LDS, the history of fundamentalism and murder read John Krakaur’s book Under the Banner of Heaven.
