Growing up I was not that much into Batman. In fact, I distinctly remember one of my young men leaders having a whole room, like a shrine, dedicated to Batman memorabilia and thinking wow that is weird and wondering why he was so much into Batman.
When I saw Batman Begins in 2005 that all changed. I understood why my youth leader liked Batman so much. If nothing else atleast this latest version of Batman is fantastic. The story line was great, the graphics were great. And the movie has depth to it. I have really enjoyed the recent trilogy. Years ago, I think back in 2012 I saw this documentary Batman Unmasked The Psychology Of The Dark Knight and it talks about many of the ideas in the second movie. I recently got Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight and I am looking forward to listening to it soon.
I couldn’t sleep a couple nights ago so I decided to watched Batman Begins. While I was watching I saw so many things in it I hadn’t before. It was amazing. Perhaps because I have been going through my own awakening process with regards to some many things. I’ll share a little of what I saw below and the rest another time.
I stay somewhat up to date with LDS / Brighamite issues. Why? Because the LDS people are my people. I care about them and to some degree I understand them as I grew up one. And I was a believing LDS member in good standing until a few months before God told me to remove my name, and incase you are wondering I didn’t do it because I wanted to sin. I actually had an increase of faith in Yeshua or more commonly know as Jesus the promised Messiah along with Book of Mormon. I no longer had to preform mental gymnastics to get the continuing contradicting statements from LDS / Brighamite church leaders to fit with the scriptures. I was not looking to leave, in fact I started learning things I would have never had thought about because I believed and still believe that “if we have the truth, it cannot be harmed by investigation. If we have not the truth, it ought to be harmed” J Reuben Clark. Originally I was only trying to help out some friends who had some questions. At the same time I was learning some Hebrew and Jewish ways from Rob Kay who grew up a Jew and converted to the LDS / Brighamite church later in his life. He once told me the reason he did so was because “The Book of Mormon is a Hebrew document”.
While staying current with LDS / Brighamite issues, I learned about McKenna Denson and what happened to her in the MTC and how the LDS / Brighamite church continued to cover it up through out the years.
I have done what I can do to help her out with showing support and trying to spread awareness of the various issues she is trying to fix. Here is a quote from my Bishops are JUDGEs of Israel artile I wrote to help her and Sam Young from Protect LDS Children. When you get a chance please read the whole article, although it is long I have been told it is very good even from people who don’t agree with my conclusion.
Although there is a statute of limitation in the state courts, there are no scriptures for a statute of limitations when a sin or a crime was committed in church courts, and since we are to use “[God’s] SCRIPTURES for a LAW” and this “LAW to GOVERN [God’s] church” D&C 42:59, I propose that McKenna Denson‘s rapist be put on trial in a church court using God’s laws to govern it and not man’s policies found in the Church Handbook of Instructions. This is assuming that McKenna is willing to be one of the multiple witnesses required, which considering she has continually tried to have this taken care of through the years, I have no doubt she is willing to come forward as a witness at a real church court according to God’s words. I personally know of no other witnesses but am confident that McKenna or someone else can find one other witness. I suggest if we want to root out this wickedness from the church we need to do this and sadly to so many others, as commanded in D&C 42:79-93, D&C 107:68-78 and many others we have looked at.
Bishops are JUDGEs of Israel
If you would like to know more about McKenna and what happened this interview by Heart of the Matter is a good start: Interview with McKenna Denson Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. Radio Free Mormon has also done multiple excellent podcast from a lawyer’s point of view: Church Sex Scandal Cover-up, Part 2, Update, Update, Part 3 – The Appeal, Update on the Appeal Part 4 – State Records Commission, Wins A Victory On Appeal, Interview Part 1, Interview Part 2. If you don’t want to listen Radio Free Mormon’s voice that much I recommend listening to the first two of his: Church Sex Scandal Cover-up, Part 2. McKenna has told that one of her favorite interviews she has done is the one from mosaic I have sinced listened to both episodes,
#MormonMeToo Part 1: The First Law of Heaven and
#MormonMeToo Part 2: The Church Responds, and agree they were both excellent.
Now that we have gotten the back ground out of the way, we can now talk about the connection that came to me.
Near the beginning of Batman Begins Bruce, who later becomes Batman, goes to the hearing regarding the early release of Chill, the man who killed his parents 14 years ago, with a plan that he thinks will make him feel better. Which if he was able to carry out would have done very little in solving the problem. But something completely out of his control, call it an act of God, prevented him from carrying out his plans.
Something similar happened to McKenna. McKenna was in negotiations with the LDS / Brighamite church trying to reach a settlement which no doubt would include McKenna getting some money and her signing a none disclosure agreement, which sadly the LDS / Brighamite church does a lot of deals like this. But just like Bruce Wayne something out of her control, call it an act of God, prevented it from happening. MormonLeaks leaked the recording of Joseph L Bishop interview (backup) she conducted. Joseph L Bishop doesn’t say he raped McKenna in this recorded interview (backup) but he does asure it is very plausible as he admits to many horindus in it including being at a hot springs with LDS / Brighamite general authorities were a woman was topless. Although it was not McKenna that gave the recording (backup) to the public, the LDS / Brighamite church still retaliated, after all the leaders of the LDS / Brighamite church don’t care about people or what they actually do, the leaders only care about the reputation of the 501(c)3 that gives them money, power and prestige. In retaliation the LDS / Brighamite church released a dossier designed to discredit McKenna by making her look bad, instead trying to get to the truth of the matter of who leaked the recording (backup) or even more important if she was actually raped or not by a repeat offender that the church has enabled him in continually doing. On top of that the LDS / Brighamite church showed that it will stop at nothing to protect it’s own reputation, which ironically is what shows their true colors, in that they even released a minors name from a sealed adoption which they officiated on, talk about unethical practices.
When Bruce wasn’t able to have his desire, Rachel tries to help him understand that revenge and justice are not the same thing. One thing that I have been impressed with is how McKenna has been focused on doing what is right for everyone involved, including others who have and will continue to be hurt, and not seeking revenge.
Bruce confronts the evil in his town by facing Carmine Falcone. Bruce tells Carmine Falcone “I came here to show you that not everyone in Gotham is afraid of you”. Here is a summary of what Carmine Falcone responds with: He goes off on talking about how he wouldn’t have a slightest hesitation of blowing his head off in front of everyone, including the police and a judge, and that is the power of fear that he has over everyone else. Bruce tells him that he doesn’t fear him. He then lists all the relationships that Bruce has.
I find it interesting how the BYU police is owned by the LDS / Brighamite church and how they are not following the laws regarding releasing requested documents even though they are a to adhear to standards layed out by the government even after a judge tells them they need to comply they still don’t, see Wins A Victory On Appeal. It is also interesting to point out how many lawyers will say you can’t win a case against the LDS / Brighamite church in Utah because so many of the judges in Utah are LDS / Brighamite members who have gone through the temple and have sworn an oath to protect the LDS / Brighamite church no matter what. And lets not forget that many LDS / Brighamite members will disown friends and family who leave the LDS / Brighamite church and those who try to shed light on what the church is doing. Not all do this but many if not the majority disown people. On top of that the LDS / Brighamite church preaches a twisted form of sealing power and use that to get spouses to divorce their significant other, even if they still love each other, who no longer believe in the truth claims of the LDS / Brighamite church, despite the fact that 1 Corinthians 7:10-16 states that we should stay with our spouce that does not believe. Not to mention that the LDS church will also encourage spouces who hate each other to stay together because of the Temple “sealing”. Don’t get me wrong I believe we should try our hardest to keep a marriage together, but there are scriptural reasons to get a divorce, but believing a different way is not one of them. Please take the time to read Sealing Power that shows from the Bible, Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants and words from the angel Moroni to Joseph Smith that Sealing Power is something different than what is being taught in the LDS / Brighamite church today.
1 Corinthians 7:10-16
10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife. 12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. 16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
After a few words were said Carmine Falcone has two of his goons drag Bruce away. While Bruce is being dragged away we can see the disgust of those around Carmine Falcone. I can only imagine that the crowd was thinking how dare Bruce come here and say those things, this is not the place for that, besides why doesn’t he just get over it and get with the program, we are going to take over this town he should know that, either he will join us or become irrelevant.
It is interesting to see the crowd was eating, drinking, thinking although I’m doing a little evil, it’s not that big of deal, God may slap me a little, see 2 Nephi (LDS 28:8) (RLDS 12:10-11). Please take the time to read 2 Nephi (LDS 28) (RLDS 12:1-41) and see how much applies to you and your church, you may become surprised. I honestly believe we can become more like Jesus Christ if we can see the bad things in the scriptures in ourselves such that we gain a desire to and actually repent of them compared to only saying we see those things in other people and their churches.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:8) (RLDS 12:10-11) And there shall also be many which shall say: Eat, drink, and be merry; nevertheless, fear God—he will justify in committing a little sin; yea, lie a little, take the advantage of one because of his words, dig a pit for thy neighbor; there is no harm in this; and do all these things, for tomorrow we die; and if it so be that we are guilty, God will beat us with a few stripes, and at last we shall be saved in the kingdom of God.
McKenna also confronts the one who did evil to her, Joseph L Bishop. McKenna is showing the LDS / Brighamite church that not everyone is afraid of their deep pockets from the empire they have built by keeping money instead of giving it to the poor who really need it. The LDS / Brighamite church showed no hesitation in trying to kill McKenna’s reputation in their quest to kinder her case based on facts and to discourage others from coming forward with what they have done to them. As I mentioned above the LDS / Brighamite church has a strong arm on the justice system that is involved, both the police and the judges. I would also speculate releasing McKenna’s daughter’s name, which I want to interject to say was unethical, to damage her relationship with her daughter. Please watch the follow short summary of McKenna’s confrontation with evil.
If you took the time to watch the video you will notice that after a few words were said two LDS / Brighamite members did what I’m sure they were asked to do, to take her away, which is what they did, just like what happened with Bruce even down to the asaulting. If you decided to take the time to watch other videos of the incident, you will see disgust from members present even to the point of trying to stop the recording of the event. If you happened to come across what LDS / Brighamite members were saying on social media about the event you will see statements along the lines I mentioned earlier in connection to Bruce.
… how dare [McKenna] come here and say those things, this is not the place for that, besides why doesn’t [she] just get over it and get with the program, we are going to take over this town [she] should know that, either [she] will join us or become irrelevant.
I’d like to address what the LDS / Brigamite churches states at the end of the video real quick. What is an appropriate way to take care of the problem as she has tried for years and Sam Young with Protect LDS Children has tried multiple times to take care of problems through proper channels while both being ignored and told to shut up and get with the program.
To counter act what was being said about McKenna confronting evil at a church house someone made this brilliant meme.
You can read about this event in the New Testament in all of the four gospels. Matthew 21:12-16, Mark 11:15-19, Luke 19:45-46 and John 2:13-17. I’d love to go over all these four passages but for the sake of time and believing most people are familiar with what happened I’m only going to highlight one verse from Mark.
Mark 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might DESTROY him: for they FEARED him, because all the PEOPLE was ASTONISHED at his DOCTRINE.
The corrupt religious leaders of the day were afraid of Jesus and wanted to destroy him because the people were listening to him instead of them. I honestly believe that the LDS / Brighamite church is afraid of McKenna why else have they sought to destroy her credibility instead of getting to the truth of the matter. And Jesus’ actions and doctrines were destroying their craft when the people believed it and acted accordingly. This is also taught in Alma (LDS 35:3) (RLDS 16:242).
Alma (LDS 35:3) (RLDS 16:242)
3 And it came to pass that after the more POPULAR PART [leaders] of the Zoramites had consulted together concerning the words which had been preached unto them, they were ANGRY because of the WORD for it did DESTROY their CRAFT; therefore they would not hearken unto the words.
If you will read the next few verses, Alma (LDS 35:4-6) (RLDS 16:243-245), you will see how the wicked take surveys of the people instead of direction from the Word of God and revelation from God to help them figure out what they will do next and also kick out those who do not follow their philosophies that they mingled with scriptures. If you have been paying attention it has been coming out more and more how the LDS / Brighamite church does surveys of small groups and then announces a revelation of such after the results turn out well. So either they are not trusting what is God is giving them, or they are afraid the members will not accept it, or they are just simply making it up as they go. I honestly believe it is something more like the later.
Alma (LDS 35:4-6) (RLDS 16:243-245)
4 And they sent and gathered together throughout all the land all the people, and CONSULTED [enquired of] with them concerning the words which had been spoken. 5 Now their rulers and their priests and their teachers did not let the people know concerning their desires; therefore they found out PRIVILY [privately] the MINDS of all the PEOPLE. 6 And it came to pass that AFTER they had FOUND OUT the MINDS of all the PEOPLE, those who were in favor of the words which had been spoken by Alma and his brethren were CAST OUT of the land; and they were many; and they came over also into the land of Jershon.
In Doctrine and Covenants (LDS 121:41) a revelation in response to a prayer by Joseph Smith we are told we should not maintain things by our so called priesthood power but by influence.
D&C (LDS 121:41) No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned;
It is universally understood that a Temple is more sacred than a church house or synagogue. And Jesus deliberately chose to over throw the tables in the Temple. It is interesting to note that Jacob in the Book of Mormon was given “strict commandment” by God “to admonish [them] according to [their] crimes” even to do it in the more sacred place “the temple” Jacob (LDS 2:9) (RLDS 2:9-10) regarding their desires for money, which Jesus talked about, and sex, which McKenna talked about. Lets take a look at some of the relevant verses:
Jacob (LDS 1:15-19, 2:2) (RLDS 1:15-20)
15 And now it came to pass that the people of Nephi, under the reign of the second king, began to grow hard in their hearts, and indulge themselves somewhat in WICKED PRACTICES, such as like unto David of old desiring MANY WIVES and CONCUBINES, and also Solomon, his son. 16 Yea, and they also began to search MUCH GOLD and SILVER, and began to be lifted up somewhat in PRIDE. 17 Wherefore I, Jacob, gave unto them these words as I taught them IN THE TEMPLE, having first obtained mine errand from the Lord. 18 For I, Jacob, and my brother Joseph had been consecrated priests and teachers of this people, by the hand of Nephi. 19 And we did magnify our office unto the Lord, taking upon us the responsibility, ANSWERING the SINS of the PEOPLE upon our own HEADS if we did not TEACH them the WORD of GOD with all DILIGENCE; wherefore, by LABORING with our MIGHT their BLOOD might NOT COME UPON our GARMENTS; otherwise their blood would come upon our garments, and we would NOT BE FOUND SPOTLESS at the last day.
Jacob (LDS 2:2) (RLDS 2:2) Now, my beloved brethren, I, Jacob, according to the responsibility which I am under to God, to magnify mine office with soberness, and that I might RID MY GARMENTS of YOUR SINS, I come up INTO THE TEMPLE this day that I might declare unto you the word of God.
Jacob (LDS 2:9) (RLDS 2:9-10) Wherefore, it burdeneth my soul that I should be CONSTRAINED, because of the STRICT COMMANDMENT which I have received FROM GOD, to ADMONISH you according to your CRIMES, to enlarge the wounds of those who are already wounded, instead of consoling and healing their wounds; and those who have not been wounded, instead of feasting upon the pleasing word of God have daggers placed to pierce their souls and wound their delicate minds.
Jacob (LDS 2:11) (RLDS 2:12-13) Wherefore, I must tell you the TRUTH according to the PLAINNESS of the WORD OF GOD. For behold, as I inquired of the LORD, thus came the word unto me, saying: Jacob, get thou up INOT THE TEMPLE on the MORROW, and DECLARE the word which I shall give thee unto this people.
Jacob (LDS 2:16) (RLDS 2:20-21) O that he would rid you from this INIQUITY and ABOMINATION. And, O that ye would LISTEN unto the word of HIS COMMANDS, and let not this PRIDE of your hearts destroy your souls!
Jacob (LDS 2:22-23) (RLDS 2:29-32)
22 And now I make an end of speaking unto you concerning this PRIDE. And were it not that I must speak unto you concerning a GROSSER CRIME, my heart would rejoice exceedingly because of you. 23 But the word of God BURDENS me because of your GROSSER CRIMERS. For behold, thus saith the LORD: This people begin to WAX [increase] in INIQUITY; they UNDERSTAND NOT THE SCRIPTURES, for they SEEK to EXUSE THEMSELVES in committing WHOREDOMS, because of the things which were written concerning David, and Solomon his son.
Jacob (LDS 2:33) (RLDS 2:42-43) For they shall not lead away captive the DAUGHTERS of my people because of their TENDERNESS, save I SHALL VISIT THEM with a SORE CURSE, even unto DESTRUCTION; for THEY SHALL NOT COMMIT WHOREDOMS, like unto them of old, saith the LORD OF HOSTS.
Jacob (LDS 2:35) (RLDS 2:45-47) Behold, ye have done GREATER INIQUITIES than the Lamanites, our brethren. Ye have BROKEN the HEARTS of your TENDER WIVES, and LOST the CONFIDENCE of your CHILDREN, because of YOUR BAD EXAMPLES BEFOR THEM; and the SOBBINGS of THEIR HEARTS ASCEND up to GOD AGAINST YOU. And because of the STRICKNESS of the WORD OF GOD, which COMETH DOWN AGAINST YOU, MANY HEARTS DIED, PIERCED WITH DEEP WONDS.
Did not McKenna warn the people of a gross crime that was done by one among them? Yea, she did, and they became angry because of her boldness in declaring an inconvenient truth. Yea they harden their hearts because of their lack of concern for the tender hearts that had been deeply wounded and their disregard for the Word of God speaking against such acts and prefered the pretended words from Brigham Young.
The LDS / Brighamite leaders have made it impossible for the members to speak out on errors of doctrine and policies that are in the church today because of how the “lesser part” Mosiah (LDS 29:26) (RLDS 13:35-36) in high church positions has twisted church doctrine, practices, policies and procedures.
Mosiah (LDS 29:26) (RLDS 13:35-36) Now it is NOT COMMON that the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE DESIRETH anything CONTRARY to that which is RIGHT; but it is COMMON for the LESSER PART of the PEOPLE to DESIRE that which is NOT RIGHT; therefore this shall ye OBSERVER and MAKE it your LAW—to do your business BY the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
Here is clip from The Mormons where you can watch Dallin H Oaks saying “it’s wrong to criticize leaders of the church, even if the criticism is true”.
Here are some very damning quotes from Joseph Smith regarding the blind obedience to the leaders that LDS / Brighamite members give.
And none are required to tamely and blindly submit to a man because he has a portion of the priesthood. We have heard men who hold the priesthood remark, that they would do anything they were told to do by those who presided over them, if they knew it was wrong; but such obedience as this is worse than folly to us; it is slavery in the extreme; and the man who would thus willingly degrade himself should not claim a rank among intelligent beings, until he turns from his folly. A man of God… would despise the idea. Others, in the extreme exercise of their almighty authority have taught that such obedience was necessary, and that no matter what the saints were told to do by their presidents, they should do it without asking any questions. When Elders of Israel will so far indulge in these extreme notions of obedience as to teach them to the people, it is generally because they have it in their minds to do wrong themselves. – Joseph Smith, Millennial Star, vol.14 #38, page 593-95
President Joseph Smith read the 14th chapter of Ezekiel–said the Lord had declared by the Prophet, that the people should each one stand for himself, and depend on no man or men in that state of corruption of the Jewish church–that righteous persons could only deliver their own souls–applied it to the present state of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–said if the people departed from the Lord, they must fall–that they were depending on the Prophet, hence were darkened in their minds… – Joseph Smipth, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 237
Contrast with what is happening now with this quote from Hugh B Brown.
I admire men and women who have developed the questing spirit, who are unafraid of new ideas as stepping stones to progress. We should, of course, respect the opinions of others, but we should also be unafraid to dissent — if we are informed. Thoughts and expressions compete in the marketplace of thought, and in that competition truth emerges triumphant. Only error fears freedom of expression.
We must preserve freedom of the mind in the church and resist all efforts to suppress it.
Hugh B Brown, A Final Testimony, 2017 Jan 01
Many people have tried but the LDS / Brighamite church has institutionalized so many evils and protections of itself and it’s leaders that it’s time for a “new wine bottle” Matthew 9:17. Here are a few examples of how the LDS / Brighamite leaders have had people speaking out excommunicated despite the fact the scriptures state that they are to stay out of it:
How To Become An Apostate In One Afternoon
On The High Road To Apostasy
Conduct Unbecoming A Member Of The Church
40 Days on Death Row
Jeremy Runnells “Court of Love”
One thing I bring out in No Flesh Above Another is that the quorum of the twelve apostles have no right to regulate the church where there is high council, although they claim Joseph Smith restored things, they are not keeping with the restored order of the church through Joseph Smith.
The Twelve shall have no right to go into Zion or any of its stakes and there undertake to regulate the affairs thereof where there is a standing high council. But it is their duty to go abroad and regulate all matters relative to the different branches of the church. Joseph Smith, Kirtland Council Minute Book, page 112.
I recently watched Sodom, City of… Justice? from AlephBeta that I believe touches upon what I have been talking about. Here is a quote from the transcript that I feel is the most relevant to what I have been saying.
It seems that we are looking at a kind of progression here. The eating of the forbidden fruit, that was a first step along a dark and dangerous path – a path whose possible end state is Sedom. In other words: If people don’t disabuse themselves of the evil values they expressed by reaching for that fruit, they risk the possibility that some time in the future, these evil values will give rise to an entire society that institutionalizes these values. If that would ever happen, the society itself would need to be destroyed.
The people of Sedom, they weren’t just bad; they institutionalized evil; they built it into their system of law. The mob that converged on Lot’s door that sought to molest his guests – the text describes them as ‘young and old, from one part of society to the other.’ A strange demographic, wouldn’t you say? It doesn’t seem like the mob was motivated by lust, they were motivated by civic duty. This was a mass, civic, protest on Lot’s lawn, because… Lot broke the rules. Sedom; it was the original gated community – and, as the Ramban writes, the rules were: We keep guests out of our little, paradisiacal, place, by raping and robbing them. The Sedomites, they institutionalized evil. Ultimately, there is no place in the world for a society like that. Both the garden and the inhabitants have got to go.
Sodom, City of… Justice? from AlephBeta
Just in case you don’t know the definition of disabuse, like I didn’t, here it is:
persuade (someone) that an idea or belief is mistaken.
“he quickly disabused me of my fanciful notions”
disabuse – bing
We need to be very diligent that we are sticking to God’s words and not the philosophies of men mingled with scriptures that allow for these naturosities to continue unchecked. I spoke on how we need to have bishops follow the Word of God instead of what in LDS / Brighamite church secret handbook of instructions that only leaders are allowed to look at in Bishops are JUDGEs of Israel. Everyone claims this is a good idea, but most seem to exempt the groups that they are part of from it.
Part of being diligent in rooting out this and other evils is calling it out as the scriptures direct us to.
Should We Stone Our Children from 119 Ministries is a great video about judgement in general, and clears up many misconceptions on the subject, along with A Righteous Judge a short one and a half minute video. The cult of “Do not Judge” article expounds this subject from the Old and New Testaments. Alma’s statement to his less than stalwart son Corianton shows that we all need to do “righteous judgment” Alma (LDS 41:14) (RLDS 19:78-80).
Alma (LDS 41:14) (RLDS 19:78-80) Therefore, my son, see that you are merciful unto your brethren; deal justly, JUDGE RIGHTEOUSLY, and do good continually; and if ye do all these things then shall ye receive your reward; yea, ye shall have mercy restored unto you again; ye shall have justice restored unto you again; ye shall have a righteous judgment restored unto you again; and ye shall have good rewarded unto you again.
Jesus himself taught we should do this in the Sermon on the Mount.
Matt 7:5 Thou hypocrite, FIRST cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and THEN shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
Notice how Jesus says to clean up your own act first and then you can help others with cleaning up their act. This is nothing new as it is the Old Testament also in addition to trying to encourage others not to sin.
Leviticus 19:15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
Leviticus 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
It seems from looking at what is going on, McKenna inherently understands and believes this more than the LDS / Brighamite church and members who claim they are following the example and teachings of Jesus Christ. Instead of just passively believing she did the more import thing, the doing.
Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; BUT HE THAT DOETH the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Before Batman takes off to go among the trodden path, Rachel says “at least tell me your name”. Batman replies “It’s not who I am underneath, but what I DO that defines me”.
We should take note in Hebrew to take upon a name is to DO what that name represents not merely claiming it. In addition God’s church is often refered to as a women.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:16) (RLDS 12:19-20) has a very pungent warning for those who do not seek righteous justice for those who have been deeply harmed.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:16) (RLDS 12:19-20) WO unto them that TURN ASIDE the JUST for a thing of NAUGHT and REVILE AGAINST that which is GOOD, and say that it is of NO WORTH! For the day shall come that the LORD GOD will speedily visit the inhabitants of the earth; and in that day that they are fully ripe in iniquity they shall perish.
I honestly believe these precepts are the reasons why the prophets say they are “washing peoples blood off of them”. Just like the prophets in the scriptures, McKenna does not want any blood to come upon her hands for not doing anything when she knows a sexual predator is lurking unbenounced among them. It’s very concerning that LDS / Brighamite leaders are more worried about the 501(c)3 and their own reputations over the “tender hearts of women and children” in wards world wide.
Now back to Bruce’s story. After the two goons drag Bruce out of the building, he goes through much soul searching trying to figure things out. All along trying to figure out how to take the evil empire of his people down. It was after finding himself because of the help of others who tried to but failed to take the evil empire down before. And also the help from the law, that in the end that got the streets and buildings clean and safe for everyone.
In a like manner McKenna is going through a soul searching quest while focusing on making the LDS / Brighamite church a safer place for children and adults. And is using the law to help achieve her righteous desire.
While Bruce is preparing to fight the evil of his people, Alfred asks Bruce “why bats, Master Wayne?” Bruce answers “bats frighten me. It’s time my enemies shared my dread.” In the beggining of the Batman Begins, Bruce falls down a deep well and is wounded and bats surround him down there. He turns that horrifying experience into part of his arsenal in his battle against evil.
McKenna has also come to terms with the wonds she received years ago down in a basement. And is now using it to fight against the LDS / Brighamite church for the betterment of mankind.
The next segment in Batman Begins, has Carmine Falcone talking with Flass about the stuffed animals at the docks. But before the two of them start talking privately in the car together Flass rips the head off of a teddy bear and pulls out some drugs. I’m believe Flass grabbing a bear is symbolic although he is not a good guy, he is not participating in the horrid abominations the leaders of gangs do namely sexual abominations and murder like the Gadianton robbers do. One of the goals of Satanic Ritual Abuse is to mess with the heads of the victum including their memories and give total control to the perpetrator. Below is the conversation they had.
Flass: Bears go straight to the dealers.
Carmine: Yeah, and the rabbits go to the man in the Narrows.
Flass: What’s the difference?
Carmine: Ignorance is bliss, my friend. Don’t burden yourself with the secrets of scary people.
One of the differences between bears and rabbits is that bears have strength to resist and fight back where rabbits are soft and tender and not very likely to defend themselves. I would like you to recall how in Jacob passage we looked at earlier talks about the “tender hearted” and the “gross crimes” committed against them. The lesser crimes are done somewhat in the open, but the more hideous ones, like murder and sexual abominations, are done in the dark and in secret. And the scary people, only want the more vulnerable and weak to destroy because it is easier and they are worried about getting caught for fear of what the multitude will do to them if they find out their deeds.
When Joseph L Bishop desired to take a rabbit down to his dark place in the basement, he mistook a sleeping bear, McKenna Denson, for a rabbit. And now that bear, McKenna, has awokened and is fighting back, and is also empowering many others to do the same.
Finch is at the docks trying to collect evidence to build a case against Carmine Falcone from a container that Carmine Falcone tried to keep under the wraps. Here is what Finch says about the container “I’m guessing there’s something I’m not supposed to find in there”. The paid off police officer and security guard then incapacitates Finch so the evidence can not be used against Carmine Falcone.
In a like manner the LDS / Brighamite church owns the BYU police department that has repeatedly not released requested less redacted document and a audio recording in accordance to the law and a court order. Radio Free Mormon talks about this issue in Wins A Victory On Appeal.
Before Bruce’s birthday celebration, Rachel drops off his birthday present and lets him know she won’t be going because she is worried about her boss Finch and that she has too much work to do. Which this time puts her life in serious jeopardy. Bruce is worried for her life, so he goes after her as Batman to save her life. In the process of saving Rachel’s life, Jim Gordon a good police officer who believes in the law helps him. In addition to receiving help from a colony bats.
In going after the LDS / Brighamite church, McKenna is helping many past victims and preventing future victims from intolerable acts of violence. And colonies of people have come to support her in her fight against this terrible evil. In doing so I bet she feels at times that there is just too much evil to get the job done. But God is on her side and is causing these hidden things to be made known, see Mormon (LDS 5:8) (RLDS 2:34-35).
Mormon (LDS 5:8) (RLDS 2:34-35) And now behold, I, Mormon, do not desire to harrow up the souls of men in casting before them such an AWFUL SCENE of blood and carnage as was laid before mine eyes; but I, knowing that these things must surely be MADE KNOWN, and that all things which are HID must be REVEALED upon the house-tops—
The Lord told Joseph Smith in revelations contained in the Doctrine and Covenants that all was not well in the church during his day, the same is true today if not worse. One example is in D&C (LDS 84:57) (RLDS 83) (1835 4) where the Lord says the church is under condemnation and I have not heard any revelation from God Himself lifting that curse. Another one is in D&C (LDS 50:4,6-8) (RLDS 50) (1835 17)
D&C (LDS 84:57) (RLDS 83) (1835 4) And they shall remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon and the former commandments which I have given them, not only to say, but to do according to that which I have written—
D&C (LDS 50:4) (RLDS 50) (1835 17) Behold, I, the Lord, have looked upon you, and have seen abominations in the church that profess my name.
D&C (LDS 50:6-8) (RLDS 50) (1835 17) 6 But wo unto them that are deceivers and hypocrites, for, thus saith the Lord, I will bring them to judgment. 7 Behold, verily I say unto you, there are hypocrites among you, who have deceived some, which has given the adversary power; but behold such shall be reclaimed; 8 But the hypocrites shall be detected and shall be cut off, either in life or in death, even as I will; and wo unto them who are cut off from my church, for the same are overcome of the world.
Here is Ezra Taft Benson reiterated this in a famous talk.
The LDS / Brighamite church uses the All is Well in Zion theme to “lull [their members] into carnal security” which Nephi codemns in 2 Nephi (LDS 28:21,24-25) (RLDS 12:25-26,30-31). LDS / Brighamite leaders give talks stating All is Well in Zion. One example is Stay in the Boat and Hold On! from M Russell Ballard.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:21) (RLDS 12:25-26) And others will he PACIFY, and LULL them away into CARNAL SECURITY, that they will say: ALL IS WELL IN ZION; yea, ZION PROSPERETH, ALL IS WELL—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and LEADETH them away CAREFULLY down to HELL.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:24-25) (RLDS 12:30-31)
24 Therefore, WO be unto HIM that is AT EASE in ZION! 25 WO be unto HIM that CRIETH: ALL IS WELL!
If you want the awareness of this problem to be raised and ultimately to be removed from the LDS / Brighamite church please consider donating to the production of The Hushed Ones, a documentary on this very subject inside the LDS / Brighamite church. Anther great cause, related to this, to donate to is Protect LDS Children.

Do you still feel the same way about McKenna Denson? Just curious if you’ve changed your mind.
I do actually. She has made mistakes in her life, as we all have, and many of her mistakes are typical of those who have been through what she has been through.
James, see how the LDS church treats people who believe differently and tries to use illegal and unethical practices to bully people, does that make you feel differently about the LDS church?
