Jonathan Neville opines on changes at the Hill Cumorah

It’s hard to know if Jonathan Neville is being sarcastic in his June 11, 2021, blog post, “Letter VII coming to Cumorah in New York!”, or if he’s just trolling his critics or trying to sound like he has inside information that will impress his followers.

In any event, he’s clearly again playing the role of Uzzah and trying to correct what he perceives as the Church’s failure to present the correct message at the Hill Cumorah site in New York. He believes that Oliver Cowdery’s letters—which will be canonzied by Heartlanders when they finally apostatize and form their own church—should be the most prominent message at the visitor’s center and the angel Moroni monument.
Keep in mind that Jonathan Neville believes he knows better than Elder LeGrand R. Curtis Jr.—the Church Historian and Recorder, Executive Director of the Church History Department, and member of the First Quorum of the Seventy—as well as Elder Curtis’s entire staff of professionally trained historians, on how to present the Church’s message at the Hill Cumorah.

Being a retired lawyer and FTC-cited purveyor of medical fraud gives Neville the advantage in these matters.

(For the record, that was sarcasm.)
