"they almost never point out when they aren't perfect.
"I really would love to for them to point out where each prophet was wrong."
The most inane, hypocritical statement I know of on this subject was in Bruce R. McDonkey's letter to Eugene England:http://www.mrm.org/bruce-mcconkies-rebuke-of-eugene-england
McDonkey admitted that Brigham Young taught false doctrine:
"Yes, President Young did teach that Adam was the father of our spirits, and all the related things that the cultists ascribe to him...Brigham Young erred in some of his statements on the nature and kind of being that God is and as to the position of Adam in the plan of salvation, but Brigham Young also taught the truth in these fields on other occasions. And I repeat, that in his instance, he was a great prophet and has gone on to eternal reward."
So, according to McDonkey, Brigham Young could teach false doctrine, and still "go on to his eternal reward." But in his next sentence, McDonkey tells England:
"What he [Young] did is not a pattern for any of us. If we choose to believe and teach the false portions of his doctrines, we are making an election that will damn us."
So, according to McDonkey, the holy prophet Young could teach false doctrines (thereby leading the church astray) and still claim his eternal reward, but if England (a mere rank-and-file church member) believes or disseminates Young's false doctrine, he will be damned to hell.
And McDonkey is thought of as one of Mormonism's greatest thinkers and theologians.
