Radio Free Mormon: 259: Mormonism and the Rules of Evidenceby Radio Free MormonDecember 3, 2022December 3, 202211 Comments I am joined by fellow attorney Kolby Reddish to discuss the Rules of Evidence that apply in courts of law and see how the LDS Church would fare if compelled to abide by those same rules! Spoiler Alert! It doesn’t end up well for the LDS Church!

Thank you both for the references and explanations. Will listen to any podcast you do questioning the authenticity / integrity of church leaders and the way they choose to twist the doctrine and history to fit their current narrative. Hans Mensch December 3, 2022 at 9:58 pm Reply Why the new intro music? Copyright claim? Loved the previous intro. Timmy Tim December 4, 2022 at 3:52 pm Reply It’s as if the papyri were a spiritual medium, the same way the seer stones were. As if the papyri themselves were urim and thummim. Debbie Jo December 4, 2022 at 9:55 pm Reply I really enjoyed this podcast. Thanks to both of you for sharing your legal knowledge and experience. Kyle December 5, 2022 at 1:14 pm Reply Loved this show! I would love to see a similar show that gets into discussing to concept of Mormon covenants in the context of contract law. Why makes a contact legally enforceable? What are the elements of a bonafide contract? Do the “covenants” that Mormons make starting at age 8 that we are taught are essentially similar to binding contracts actually stand up to legal contract law scrutiny? Kolby December 6, 2022 at 10:07 am Reply Thanks Kyle– That’s a great question and I actually had it on my list to discuss in a “Part 2.” AmyJo December 5, 2022 at 11:17 pm Reply Loved this episode! Thanks RFM and Kolby. Can’t wait for part two. Richard December 7, 2022 at 9:07 am Reply Kolby talked a lot about the final / dying testimony of Ema and David. Would love to read those – having trouble finding them. It would be fantastic to get that information in the show notes? Kolby Reddish December 11, 2022 at 5:00 pm Reply Great question Richard—I’ll be compiling a skeletal outline of these three episodes with all the resources I talked about, but in the meantime: Emma’s last testimony: https://archive.org/details/TheSaintsHerald_Volume_26_1879/page/n287/mode/1up?view=theater David Whitmer’s book: https://en.m.wikisource.org/wiki/An_Address_to_All_Believers_in_Christ Kolby December 12, 2022 at 9:36 am Reply Richard–great question. Here’s the source for Emma’s last testimony: https://archive.org/details/TheSaintsHerald_Volume_26_1879/the%20saints%20herald%20volume%2026%201879?view=theater#page/n287/mode/2up Here’s a source for David Whitmer’s Book An Address to All Believers in Christ: https://archive.org/details/addresstoallbeli00whit Kolby December 13, 2022 at 7:11 am Reply Hi Richard, great question. I think the spam filter is keeping me from posting the links I used, but they’re both on Archive dot org. Just search for the “Last Testimony of Sister Emma” and “An Address to All Believers in Christ” there and you should find these documents. Alternatively, I’ll be putting together the outlines and links to the sources we used after Part 3 is completed on my blog for easy reference.
