A tape and transcript of a contentious 2-hour-plus conversation that took place in 2010 between a group of Swedish leaders and two LDS church representatives from Salt Lake City is making the rounds on the Internet. The questions asked by these leaders along with the answers provided by the church historical department are summarized in this article.
On July 20, 2013, a front-page article in the New York Times described how former Swedish area authority Hans Mattsson has serious doubts about Mormon history, including issues involving the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith’s polygamous ways. He learned about these through his study on the Internet. Mattsson criticizes the LDS Church for not being completely honest in its portrayal of Mormonism’s history.
