I sent the following comment in an email this morning, and thought I would put it up here as well:
I believe the form of Mormonism practiced by the LDS Church is in great peril at the moment. If the members do not fight to retain their religion it will continue to alter and degenerate into something very different that it was and it will fail in its purpose to bring again Zion. If the members allow the trend to continue, the church may “succeed” in the world, but it will not succeed in the mission of bringing Zion again. Like happened in the Book of Mormon, it will require another off-shoot to repent and return.
