    This is very timely. I love the end of the podcast where you each tell the Church what you what it to hear. The emotion in your voices is so clear, raw, and full of righteous indignation. LDS Church show us that you don’t tolerate abuse! No more hypocrisy.

    I want a public apology from the church for the remnants of my believing friends who say things like: “it’s very sad but why did she wait for 30 years to say anything?” because their ignorance is not wilful, it is a conditioned response, lacking in basic humanity. And it wounds me to have to block these friends because I can’t bear these kind of responses anymore.

    Thank you for this excellent discussion.

  3. Govt. should take strict actions against these culprits. The church as the body of Christ made up of believers in Jesus Christ, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. We should believe in Holy Spirit and must make strong spiritual relationships with God.
