Examining the claims of Jonathan Neville and the Heartland movement

Taking a bit of a break

This week has taken a toll on me, emotionally and spiritually. And there may be more challenges ahead, if Jonathan Neville follows through on some of the things he told me he may choose to do.

I’m going to take a break from this blog for a bit to find some peace in the company of friends and family. I’ll be back in a bit, once I’ve recharged.

My thanks to the kind words of support that I’ve received by way of email messages and comments on this blog. They mean more to me than you can know.

Despite our dramatic differences and feelings of mistrust for one another, I do wish to thank Jonathan Neville for posting my responses to his comparison table. He published my reply over five individual blog posts (I, II, III, IV, and V). Needless to say, I take strong exception to his commentary on my replies—I believe that he has misconstrued almost all of what I wrote. Still, I’m grateful that he gave me the opportunity to respond and followed through by publishing it. My offer for him to write something that I will post on my blog remains open.

See you soon.
“We have always endeavored to cultivate a spirit of friendship, amity, and peace with mankind.… Rumor with her ten thousand tongues has always been busy circulating falsehood and misrepresentation concerning us, and men have frequently in the absence of correct information, entertained unfavorable opinions concerning us, and have spoken as they thought; but when they have been better informed they have regretted their course and have seen that calumny has been like a viper in our path, and has stung like an adder.” —Editorial, Nauvoo Neighbor, May 3, 1843, p. 2 [source]
