Silencing Dissent.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A book that uses D-N-A evidence to contradict a long-standing Mormon belief could get the author excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Well it looks like the church is at it again. Last year it was Thomas Murphy, 6 months ago it was Grant Palmer. And now is Simon Southerton. We you look at it from a objective viewpoint you can see that the church is making the right decisions. As a institution it's their responsibility to protect the institution and control the dialogue. If the can imply that the authors are "fallen" then they don't have to address the arguements. Also these "fallen" authors automaticaly become verboden from members reading list. Good job!
