Ping to you Brother.

Do you have anything to add to this preposterous “change” in Mormon understanding of the Lamanites (American Natives)?

What I'll add to this thread is as follows. (1) Its well-documented what LDS church leaders, scriptures, lesson manuals, talks and commentaries have said about the Lamanites and the Amerinds being in general one and the same. (2) All the present discussion and changing of opinions on this subject in Mormonism circles are NOT being done in any official capacity. What has Hinckley said about it? What about Monson? What about Packer? What about Perry? What about Eyring? What about the newest Seer - i.e. Quentin Cook? (3) The defenders of Mormonism here once again are not approaching this issue with any humility. All the weeping, wailing and gnashing of their teeth does nothing to convince anyone who isn't LDS that the LDS are right. If you are trying to defend Mormonism then for heaven's sake please fairly acknowledge what was really taught throughout Mormonism history. Put things in full context and don't pick/choose things to exclude. On picking/choosing things to exclude please DO NOT exclude the scriptures mentioned in http://www.gbwells.net/Prophecies_of_America.htm.
