Gaddy was raised in the Mormon Church since her childhood. So she is suing them because she believes they lied to her. I sure did not expect a lawsuit like this. So, what exactly is Gabby's point of contention? Well, there are many, but we can focus on one example. She claims that the gold plates the Mormon Church has claimed Joseph Smith found were recently called into question by leaders of the Mormon Church, who admitted that Smith did not directly use the gold plates to create the Book of Mormon.
That is a BIG contradiction to traditional Mormon teaching. Grant H. Palmer, An Insiders View of Mormon Origins for which he was also excommunicated; ironically, claiming to have the truth and promote the truth, the Mormon leadership does not tolerate telling the truth about Mormonism.

For example, the world is not something properly classified as inherently religious having a religious worldview. Also, 1 Nephi says there are only two churches. When Joseph Smith supposedly translated the book of Mormon Christianity was the only available second option. Please note we are not able to get to every comment due to the number we receive.

Last, I have re-read my comments on here and I want to say that I share my research and hope with you in love. I have not hate towards you or any LDS. I would recommend reading a book by one of your own. A temple going faithful latter day saint named Todd Compton. After the manifesto, Woodruff, the 12 and many others still practiced and took wives for years afterwards. As I see it you are only using a portion of the scriptures the Bible and therefore your situation is like a Jury that has reached a verdict without hearing the defense witnesses latter-day scriptures.
To get that witness directly from God a person must seek to know the truth in the way that God has prescribed. It is my opinion that to switch from being a detractor of the Church to being a believer is very difficult. It requires a lot more effort on their part than someone who has not first staked out such a position. However, over the years I have heard many members say that they did succeed in doing so.
The following is how I personally think it must be approached.
Criticism of Mormonism/Books/The Kingdom of the Cults (Revised)/Index
First and foremost a person must have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ or at least be willing to do those things that will develop that faith. See James Second, a person must read and ponder the Book of Mormon, giving special attention to those chapters and verses concerning the atonement of Christ. See the list below. Third, he must ponder and be willing to apply the principles of the gospel as taught by the BOM into his life. See John Five, he must attend all our church meetings each and every Sunday to observe and understand how we apply the teachings of Jesus Christ into our lives.
Seven, he must be ready and willing to join the Church when he receives his witness from God that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. By doing these things he will show the Lord that he has a sincere heart and real intent. It is similar to listen to the radio. There are certain steps that must first be taken. I recommend this approach because it is exactly what my wife and I did, and we both received the promised witness from the Holy Ghost. In addition, during the forty years or so that I have spent in missionary work for the Church I have never once seen this approach fail.

I can guarantee that when it comes time to get this current president out, conservatives all around will bound together in unison. Being Mormon will not affect Mitt Romney, specially if he has the backing of ministers and other important political figures, which he will! Mitt has already exceed B. If recent gubernatorial and house elections are any indication of what is to come and I mean any sign of the political shift in this country, get ready for some real change you will be able to count on!
