In September 2018, the LDS Church excommunicated Sam Young, a Mormon Bishop and the founder of Protect LDS Children, for publicly speaking out and asking church leaders for: No One-on-One Interviews. No Sexual Questions. Ever.
Pedophiles, and sexual abusers within the membership and leadership of the LDS Church continue to be protected by the church which provides perpetrators with the means and opportunity for easy access to victims, and with legal representation by the Church’s law firm, Kirton McConkie, to defend against any related charges.
In October 2018, a news story surfaced implicating the current President of the Mormon Church, Russell M. Nelson, in the coverup of his daughter and son-in-law’s alleged sexual abuse of his grandchildren and other children.
Nelson immediately issued the following edicts to his members, allegedly claiming to have received this as direct revelation from God:
(1 ) the word “Mormon” is too easy to find information about, on-line. Therefore the word “Mormon” is pleasing to Satan and is to be eliminated from use. The church is to be identified only by its full name, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
(2) women are to take a “10-day fast” from all on-line social media.
Nelson’s edicts remind me of those that the Fundamental LDS leader, Warren Jeff’s, convicted of child sexual abuse, issues – from his jail cell – to his followers.
