Is FAIR being ‘fair’?

Filed under: Is FAIR being 'fair'? Share your thoughts on the FAIR article(s). — The FIRM Foundation Blog @ 8:40 am

On June 30th FAIR (Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research) posted two articles and one commentary attacking Rod Meldrum personally and attempting to discredit him by using innuedo, conjecture, and assertions from a private and personal email correspondence to a small group of supporters, inviting them to participate in a preliminary meeting to form a new organization called the Foundation for Indigenous Research and Mormonism or The FIRM Foundation. 

FAIR President Scott Gordon said that the articles were not an attack, yet Ogden Standard Examiner newpaper columnist Doug Gibson, an unbias reporter, after reading FAIR’s review states “the scholars have launched a counterattack” and “The summary…doesn’t go after Meldrum’s theories much…” and finally, “Instead, it portrays Meldrum as a crackpot, a man who claims to receive direct revelation from God on Book of Mormon matters and who insinuates that God has told him not to try and convert Mormon scholars.” 

For those of you who have seen the DVD, do you feel that this is an accurate portrayal of the DVD presentation that you have reviewed? 

If you have both seen the DVD and read the FAIR articles, please post your comments. 

If you have not seen the DVD nor seen the FAIR reviews, please withhold your comments or post in another category.
