An additional article in support of my thoughts regarding the influences of the LDS faith.
Suggested starting and ending points: 7:30 to 1:28:00 (at 1:17:30 there is an Elder Joseph F. Smith, who is self-deprecating as he begins, with some humorous incidents along the way). Go ahead and watch the whole thing, if you wish. At 1:38:13 begins a section of Q&A. I like that they counsel self-determination of the “truth” of the subject presented earlier and do not necessarily endorse it from the pulpit. 2:32:45 is about the end. The recording finishes at 2:38:51.

Post your comments, please! It’s so hard to read your minds! Impossible, in fact. Please comment.
Dr. John Dehlin (Mormon Stories podcasts, Open Stories Foundation, etc.) interviewed Steven Hassan M.Ed. LMHC, NCC recently. Here are the two parts:
Please watch both, all the way through (I know, they are not short! Take your time. Break them up.).
Comments here are eagerly sought and welcomed!
