  1. #MormonMeToo Part 2: The Church Responds — MOSAIC

    In the previous episode of this series, McKenna Denson shared her

    experience recording a conversation with her former Missionary Training

    Center president, Joseph Bishop, in which he can be heard admitting to

    sexual misconduct with multiple women while he was a leader in The Church

    of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On the recording, she confronts him

    with the allegation that he raped her while she was a Mormon missionary in

    1984, an allegation he denies.

    In this part of the series, the spiritual dimension of this story begins to

    untangle.

    How has the church responded to emerging facts — both "the church" as a

    collection of individual believers, as well as the corporate institution

    based in Salt Lake City?
