The Mormon Peace Project — Please Support

I’m becoming a big fan of William Vanwagenen (of Mormon Worker fame) — and he’s at it again. As mentioned in today’s SLTrib, if your brand of Mormonism compels you to be inclined against (instead of towards) war, please consider signing this petition. Go William go!!!!

095-096: The Mormon Worker with William Vanwagenen

November 27, 2007
By

The Mormon Worker is an independent newspaper/journal devoted to promoting Mormonism, Anarchism, and Pacifism. The founders of the Mormon Worker feel that Mormon theology is not only compatible with, but genuinely supportive of, Anarchist political philosophy and pacifism, and are therefore interested in exposing fellow members of the Mormon Church to these political viewpoints. The Mormon Worker is not devoted to criticizing the institution and leadership of the Mormon Church, but rather to informing its members of the virtually forgotten radical elements of their religious tradition, as well as to providing Mormons with radical religious commentary on current political and…

“Only the Gospel” Video, LDS Teen Motivation, and the Mormon World View

September 18, 2006
By

Published by a youtube user entitled “ldsteencenter“, this new video is powerfully interesting. The primary audio track is a female singing “I know that my Redeemer lives.” The video track consists of natural disasters, wars, and calamities, interspersed with pictures of Jesus, Gordon B. Hinckley, Book of Mormon quotes, etc. The secondary audio track is excerpts from General Conference talks. The end shows hundreds of new converts on baptism day, climaxing in more pictures of the Savior. Definitely an effective use of multimedia (depending on what your goals are).

Check out My Cousin This Weekend on C-Span 2 Book TV!!!!

For those interested, a book signing that included Jimmy Parkinson (my cousin), Lee Benson and Harold Poole will be televised on C-Span2 Book TV this Sunday evening at 12AM Sunday morning EST, 9PM Saturday night PST. This book signing included a special appearance by Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah (R). Some of you will remember Jimmy from my podcast with him. Also, I wanna know why more of the bloggernacle lawyers have not listened/commented on the “being LDS and a lawyer” part of the podcast. I think it’s definitely one of the more interesting parts.

034-036: Jim Parkinson and Soldier Slaves

July 14, 2006
By

This podcast is a slight divergence from my most recent interviews, but in every way fits the original spirit of Mormon Stories. Within these 3 episodes, we tell the story of Harold Poole–an LDS survivor of one of the most barbaric events in the 20th century–the Bataan Death March. We also discuss in some depth the ethics of law, and the juxtaposition of being LDS and a lawyer. Episode 1: We meet James W. Parkinson–a high profile personal injury lawyer, and a member of the LDS Church. We discuss Jim’s early years in Indio, CA, his early career as a…
