Blog: (VIDEO) Critical Q&A 8 - 2015-06-07
The eight installment of my question-and-answer video show, where I take up questions subscribers and commenters have asked me in my videos and answer them as best I can. Questions taken up in this video:
(1) You have previously discussed 2 big catalysts for your departure from the Church in 2012: the intense push for fundraising and ideal orgs, and the fact that you were required to tell so many lies in the normal course of your daily life. Were there were any other points during your years in the Co$ that you seriously considered leaving, but ultimately chose to stick it out? Thanks! ??
(2) I must not invalidate a person's experience: alien close encounters, near death visions, etc. I can not use what they tell me because it lacks empirical proof. Could you talk about the social and cognitive aspects of this dissonance?
