Radio Free Mormon: 074: FAIR is FOUL

Today RFM sits down with Bill Reel to discuss his time in FairMormon as way into seeing how FairMormon operates.  They discuss How Bill was recruited to be part of FairMormon, what his involvement was including FairMormon winning the 2013 Podcast Awards with Bill being a heavy contributor to their podcast that year.  What all went into their falling out and how FairMormon operates behind the scenes.

  1. Love your podcasts! Starting off with the dilemma of Fair Mormon’s name in regards to Pres. Nelson’s statement of how God and Christ are offended by the use of “Mormon” and killing it with Bednar’s statement to choose not to be offended, was brilliant! It was good to know the inside workings of Fair Mormon and knowing that they, like the LDS Church, cover, hide and really don’t answer the difficult questions.

  2. Your ability to select such appt classic music in reference to your podcasts is uncanny and awe-inspiring. I salute you! Thank you so much for your hard work in creating you informative and enlightening content.

  3. I love Your podcasts. They are always full great content. It does, however, seem like a 30 minute podcast gets turned into 2 hours when Bill is involved?

  4. I am surprised about the way fairmormon shut up Bill Reel. To silence people like that and completely delete their names is a form of fascism. The church is doing the same with its critics. These are interesting times.
    Anyway some of the lectures on the fairmormon webpage are very interesting indeed.

  5. Hey, are you Coast Guard? You start your podcast with the Coast Guard Battle Hymn, took me off guard a bit. Wondering why you chose Semper Paramus as your intro. Love the podcast! Keep it up!

  6. Still going on about “Joseph Smith’s Polygamy,” despite the volumes of evidence against it, Brigham Young’s admission to Schuyler Colfax that polygamy was a commandment “given to him and a few others.”

    There is NO evidence linking Joseph Smith to the “drawn sword.” The first account comes well after Joseph’s death. It’s all HEARSAY. It didn’t happen. C’mon, fellas… exercise some common sense here. You’re both smarter than this.

    1. “NO” evidence? You’ve already ruined your poor attempt by using a definitive “NO”. I am quite shocked that you have made this assertion considering it is a revelation given to Joseph Smith in the D&C. Maybe you are just trolling?

  7. Have you seen the new HBO series Chernobyl? I highly recommend it. I couldn’t help but feel like it was a representation of the LDS church.

    “What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we will mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, than we will no longer recognize the truth at all.” “When the truth offends, we lie and we lie until we can no longer remember it is even there. But it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth and sooner or later, that debt is paid.”

  8. And how many things in favour of Joseph Smith, but not related until decades after his death, do Mormons believe? Your argument cuts both ways. For example, all descriptions of the first vision after 1832 can be questioned because they are later and therefore subject to greater error.

    Employing your argument, the Bible, entire story of Christ and much of the BOM should be rejected.
