Episode #44: The Respect for Marriage Act, The Changes to The Salt Lake Temple & What It Means for The LDS Church & Mormonism W/Benjamin Shaffer

WARNING NOT FOR LITTLE EARS ADULT SUBJECT MATTER ON THIS EPISODE!! On this episode of the podcast we are going to talk about the respect for marriage act that was passed about a month ago. What you didn't think I wasn't going to talk about this did you? I wanted to wait until after the bill had passed to find out what the law would be exactly. For this episode I bring Ben Shaffer back on the podcast to break this law down. Because of Ben's training as an attorney, I felt like he was the man for the job. We cover what the law says and what it means to Mormons and more specifically the LDS Church since the church threw its weight behind the bill. We then cover how the Church's support of this bill actually seems to walk hand in hand with the physical changes to the Salt Lake Temple. To date I think it is perhaps the most honest conversation I have had on the podcast about all the changes that that have happened to the LDS Church.
