Hi, my name is Russ. Yes, this blog might be another one of the crowd. But not if I have anything to say about it.
I just finished working at the Church History Library. I handled Brigham Young’s diaries, documents, and letters on a daily basis. I do have an axe to grind (why else would people blog?). I have no sympathy with either those who seek to tear the Church down or those who seek to cover our history up. Most of all, I want the Saints to feel secure in studying their history. It’s not scary, gutsy, or “apostate.” This is our story. It’s there, and we can own it. I love our people in the great times and in the shameful times. “The spirit of love casteth out all fear.”
