Attacked: New Faithful Website Goes After Post Mormon Podcasters' Finances

New faithful website attacks post Mormon podcasters’ finances! On this episode of Mormonish Podcast, cohosts Rebecca and Landon and special guest, The Backyard Professor, explore a new faithful website called Answering LDS Critics (answeringldscritics.com). This website is dedicated to “Revealing the Strategies of LDS Church Critics and Addressing Their Accusations.” The site has many links to LDS apologetic resources and materials and features an article called, “Making Money with Anti-Mormonism - A Critical Look at LDS Critics.” The article promotes the idea that post Mormon thought leaders and podcasters are only in it for the money, and actually destroy faith for the sole purpose of raking in the cash. The slogan the website uses is “The More Faith They Shake, the More Money They Make!” Mormonish dives into the data and shines a spotlight on the facts when it comes to post Mormon thought leaders and podcasters. Join us as we set the story straight!
