The following email was sent to my stake president tonight.
Over the past year, I have been very active in working to bring awareness to the dangers of our interview policies: The petition. The Sacred Stories. The march. The news conferences. All the TV, radio and newspaper coverage. The top tier media coverage in Australia and the U.K. Finally, National Children’s day.
This has led many parents to protect their children by establishing wise boundaries. A wonderful thing. It has enabled and facilitated healing. A gorgeous thing.
It has also led the Church to make changes. Unfortunately, they were minor. Although they were steps in the right direction, all the inherent dangers remain.
My next action is planned for July 28 & 29. Of course, it will be a peaceful undertaking. It’s an action that the church has never faced before. It will draw every bit as much attention as the march. In fact, it will have a much bigger impact. Millions of people who have never heard of our cause will become aware of what we Mormons subject our children to.
A few months ago, I visited the building which houses the apostles’ offices. I requested an appointment. They didn’t let me through the locked doors. Rather, they talked to me through an intercom. I was informed that a security detail would meet me in front of the building.
Sure enough, within just a few minutes, three guards in business suits appeared. They didn’t emerge from the front door. They just seemed to materialize out of nowhere. Although I was a bit nervous, we had a delightful conversation. They told me how to secure a meeting with an apostle. My stake president would have to make a request to his supervising seventy which would then be relayed through the area presidency.
So, here’s my request. Please relay to your supervising seventy that I’d like to meet with an apostle.
I’ll be in Salt Lake City on Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th. The action will last all day, both days. However, what happens on Saturday will not be visible unless someone is really paying attention. On the 29th, what happened on the preceding day will be revealed and it will continue all day Sunday.
Preparations have been quietly underway for the past few weeks. The elements are coming together to enable thousands of voices to unite to protect our children and to protect the good name of the church.
Please rest assured that this action will be completely peaceful and legal and……HUGE. It will pose no threat to anyone or anything….except to a dreadful policy.
BTW, if you are ready to stand with me to protect our kids, I’ll gladly buy your plane ticket to Utah for our meeting with an apostle.
Please keep me advised,
