Really? Youve known all along Joseph Smith and Brigham Young abused their obscene power over their followers to have their way with their wives and teenage daughters and you failed to disclose that fact for 185 years while you had us sing their praises and expected us to be honest in all of our dealings? Fuck you.
You are either transparent or not transparent. There is no middle ground. And this is from God's chosen apostle!!! What utter nonsense. You either tell the true or it is not the truth or the whole truth. This guy needs a temple recommend interview and asked if he is honest in his dealings. I would love to hear the answer.
But if you have your calling and election made sure, then it does not matter if you lie.
Mormons use way too many words, just like their ridiculous BOM. They are experts at talking around a subject, back-pedaling, contradicting themselves, and deliberately confusing the sheeple with too many words.
Ballard and the other leaders are puffed up with hot air, overly concerned with image and appearance. The whole religion is empty inside. Mormonism is just smoke and mirrors.
"It’s this idea that the church is hiding something, which we would have to say as two Apostles who have covered the world and know the history of the church and know the integrity of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve from the beginning of time, there has been no attempt on the part in anyway, that the church leaders trying to hide anything from anybody [sic]."
When's the last time you heard a Mormon disclose the fact that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young ruined the lives of their followers by stealin their wives while they were away serving missions for the church, like they both did to Henry Jacobs, while he served 8 missions for the church?
Prophets that don’t prophesy. Seers that don’t see. Revelators that don’t reveal. It’s dogs and ponies all the way down.
They don’t remember learning from a professional Egyptologist, that they paid for, that the BoA is completely bogus? If your church has such a gaping memory hole, quit being led by such brain dead zombies. If not, they are using you for your money.
My boss's boss used that same statement when I was brought before a tribunal because I was complaining about some unethical events that were going on. The top boss said that "we're going to be as transparent as possible, short of sitting here naked." That brought up quite the mental image. Then this person looked at some Scandinavian jewelry I was wearing and commented that the Vikings weren't as tall and tough as everyone thinks they were. That message/threat was pretty transparent and clear to me.
I could just imagine Harvey Weinstein trying that in court next time they ask him if he swears to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help him God, "Uh, I will be as transparent as I know how to be.....uh, she was a few months shy of 15! Not 14! My God it sounds so bad when you say it like that!"

OMG, this statement should be the calling card for the LDS Church!!!
It is too funny and too purrfect!
The statement surely says it all, doesn't it? "We're as transparent as we know how to be in telling the truth," uttered Ballard.
Gives the GAs all the wiggle room, a huge hole to jump into when needed, and all the spinning room they want! (Well you see your honor, I just did not know how to be more transparent. Should I take classes or something? or Your honor, you are not understanding the word transparent correctly like I see it. After all it is jussst so very, VERY subjective. You must agree Your Honor, this is the case.)
Transparent huh? Yea, right. All members are 'trans' and tscc is their parent (FU "heavenly ['church'] father"!). Does that explain its treatment of it's member(s)? Whippings. Punishments. Callings. Missions. Tithing. Temples. Hairstyles. Singles. Sacrament. Interviews. Shaming. Restrictions. Humiliation. Gossip. Back Stabbing. Shunning. Ex...
TSCC (the still criminal cult) is trans it's apparent. ("... as we know how"?) legalese? Subjective. What truth one might inquire/ LDS spokesmen would answer?
Jeremy Tunnels didn't get the truth and look what that got TMC/ him/ us/ the world: the ces letter (and his freedom, answers and happiness).
Kinda like trusted Trump surrogates, swearing they are telling the Twoof, the ho Twooth and nothin but the Twooth, I swear to God Almighty! So help me God, about Russia, except when they're lying through their GD teeth, which is pretty much ALWAYS!
