Her most recent piece is titled “The Rise of the Liberal Latter-Day Saints” and has received much attention since its publication in the Washington Post Magazine last week. Today Emily is joining me for a discussion on the topic of Liberal Latter Day Saints, as well as the tensions that arise when a minority faction within a faith becomes larger and more vocal. We’ll also discuss the challenges of expressing spiritual autonomy in a church that puts great emphasis on hierarchal authority.
