We're really treated this week on "Saints" episode 15. Elder J Devin Cornish, from the Quorum of the Seventy, lends his sleep inducing voice to the inane rhetoric. If only he'd let Sarah Eyring say more, instead of overtalking her. I mean, it still would have been rhetoric, but it would have sounded beautiful, at least to Sister Patience.
The Elder references the wrong scripture as inspiration for Doctrine And Covenants 76. He mentions John 5:39, but he mixed it up with John 5:29. One character different. Very different content though. Guess he was speaking "as a man" there and not "from God". Here are the two verses from the King Jimmy version:
John 5:39 ~ "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."
John 5:29 ~ "And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."
Smitty and Rigdon invent group improvisation, and "yes-and" themselves to D&C 76.
William McLellin gets "dragged" by the "Saints" hosts for:
Rigdon literally gets dragged, and along with with Joseph is assaulted by a mob, in a disgusting display of vigilante "justice". The assaulted had been shitty; and in the absence of better law-enforcement, the assaulters felt permitted to punish them with emotionally fuelled violence. That's the wrong way to address grievances in ANY era. Shitty people on all sides.
