Factually, what was done by Holland makes perfect sense. Clean up the story when you know you got some bad facts. Good job Holland. Admitting you were wrong takes courage.

Spiritually it's a mess. If you felt the spirit in the first edition of the story that wasn't completely true then was it really the "Spirit of Truth" that you felt? Or the "Spirit of Half Truth"? Or maybe the "Spirit of I wish this was true?"

And if you can't tell the difference, is it because you aren't good enough? Nice guess but Holland couldn't either and it wasn't Monson who pointed it out to Holland now was it. It was someone in the family themselves. Point is, the truth detector in the very heights of Mormonism are also broken.

But then you might have already known that based on your careful answers to temple recommend interviews.

A little self accountability from the Dodo is noted, however, more, much more is needed.

"When authority masquerades as a power, a simple question will unmask it."

"Just because you think, feel, or believe something is true, doesn't make it true!"

"The doubt of your faith, is not God testing you, but truth trying to emerge and free you."
