Quote:Mormon Church Releases First Photos Of The Stone Joseph Smith Used To Translate The Book Of Mormon
It's the latest step the church has taken toward clarifying sensitive parts of its history.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Mormon church's push toward transparency about its roots and beliefs took another step forward Tuesday with the first published pictures of a small sacred stone it believes founder Joseph Smith used to help translate a story that became the basis of the religion.

The pictures of the smooth, brown, egg-sized rock are part of a new book that also contains photos of the first printer's manuscript of the Book of Mormon. Officials with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unveiled the photos at a news conference in Salt Lake City.

The religion's drive in recent years to open its vaults and clarify sensitive beliefs is aimed at filling a void on the Internet for accurate information as curiosity and scrutiny increased as church membership tripled over the last three decades, Mormon scholars said.

Church historian Steven E. Snow acknowledged that dynamic, saying: "The Internet brings both challenge and opportunities. We're grateful for the opportunity to share much of collection through the use of the Internet."

The church's campaign seems aimed at preventing current members from leaving and showing non-Mormons that they aren't hiding anything, said Terryl Givens, professor of literature and religion and the James Bostwick chair of English at the University of Richmond.

Well, this is just down right hilarious! Didn't that stone disappear along with the "tablets" or something like that?

I bet you all a goose that can lay a golden egg that stone is fake......and its a good thing it IS fake or I would owe you a gold egg laying goose that I don't have.

I bet the MEN who were just sitting around trying to think of ways to add more credibility to their religion just walked outside, found a stone, had it polished and made up a fake old looking sack and took pictures of it lol.

Next, the Catholic church releases pictures of the True Cross...

What about the golden tablets anyway? This random pair of stones hardly makes the story more credible.

"Freedom of Religion" -- is really just being able to avoid being involuntarily committed to a mental hospital -

because anybody who believes such drivel is mental.

For some reason I found this hysterical and posted this same thing over in the GWOG Mormon thread.

Here's a picture of this mormon rock.

oooooOOOOOOOooooooo

Didja know that one stone is the "true" stone and the other stone isn't because it's from a fuckin bogus religion?

The true test would come when you put the tablets in a hat with the stones to read the ancient Egyptian manuscripts. (that turn out to be from the book of the dead)
