Introduction by Stan Barker
Today we introduce our SHIELDS Blog. Unlike some blogs on the Internet, this one will not have a section for public comment. Our purpose here is not to dialogue. But we do see the need to comment on aspects of events and issues that are relevant to “Mormonism.” A blog provides an excellent vehicle for such commentary. Our blog will be updated as we see fit and as time permits. We invite occasional guest comments. All, however, must be submitted and be approved by all members of SHIELDS. Although our first post addresses critics of the Church, we do not intend that to be our sole focus.
