The People Are Looking for Answers

A rabbi who writes controversial things becomes international news.
mormon-baptism

From the NY Times article:

Mr. Mattsson said that when he started sharing what he had learned with other Mormons in Sweden, the stake president (who oversees a cluster of congregations) told him not to talk about it to any members, even his wife and children. He did not obey: “I said to them, why are you afraid for the truth?”

We say we have the truth. We should be trying to figure out how to reconcile it with other truths, not saying “we have the truth” so loudly that we are incapable of hearing anything else.
