Mormonism LIVE: 028: John Dehlin and the Origination of Mormon Stories

Today we wit down with John Dehlin, host of Mormon Stories and Pioneer who blazed the trail into historical transparency regarding Mormon History and Social Dysfuntion using the internet as the vehicle. His podcast pioneered a new phase in Mormonism where Scholars talked openly and and the Church could be held accountable for its unhealthiness.

  1. Living in Provo, I apostatized in 2001. Back then there was no one to talk to. No FB. No social media. Nothing.
    I did talk to my “believing” colleagues at work only to be shocked how many of them secretly doubted.
    Several years goes by and Mormon Stories appears on the scene. Dehlin’s podcast was a lifeline. As the years go by I find that JD’s assertions line up quite closely to mine which provided much needed validation.
    There are a couple of dozen Mormon Stories that in my mind ended up aging quite well and being epic.
    I believe this year that JD’s emphasis of “informed consent” is incredibly important. In two words it no only directs a bright light to the Q15’s moral blind spot, but is also summarizes the value of a good portion of Dehlin’s work.
    I’m so grateful for Dehlin’s work and I’m hoping that he’ll be able to continue to navigate the tricky waters of such a specialized podcast involving such a powerful organization.

    BTW, so glad both RFM and Bill Reel were willing to conduct interviews with Mormon Stories, sharing their experiences and perspective with all of us.
