This is comparable to parallel polygamy upon which Mormonism was founded -- and from which they've repented.
The largest denomination, the SBC, fell into schism (1845) to allow chaining African-Americans to plantation walls.
At least the Mormons weren't founded for this end.
Beck and the Mormons are wrong on the Trinity, Christology and world history.
However, mustn't we also repent of our own sins? Otherwise we're Christian on paper, but behaving like the world.
