Dissenters make organizations better, research shows. So why has Mormonism often tried to cut off criticism and debate?
This is by no means the first Mormon nastygram I’ve ever received, and it's not even close to being the worst. After five years of blogging, I've become downright philosophical about them. But several things struck me about this one.
It's one thing to disagree with LDS leaders, and to speak plainly and pointedly about the reasons why. It's another to be unfair, inflammatory, and even cruel.
