As Catholics again wrestle with another abuse scandal, the Mormons excommunicate a critic of their one-on-one interview with children policy

Recommended Posts



These "worthiness" interviews involve an untrained ecclesiastical leader asking questions about sexual habits to mostly teenagers and even some children as young as eight. One-on-one. Behind closed doors. And the questions can get as explicit as the leader seems fit. I've heard quite a few horror stories from both men and women. "Did you orgasm? How many times?" "How many fingers did you use?" "Were your clothes on or off?"


Sam Young, a guy who used to do these types of interviews in a leadership position, has been organizing public opposition to this practice.


His reward is a disciplinary council with Mormon leaders where he is lileñy to be excommunicated. 


As Mormon Apostle Dallin Oaks once said: "It is wrong to criticize leaders of the church [re: me]. Even if the criticism is true."
