137: Sex in the Mormon News April 2018

Kristin Marie Bennion and Amy Heffernan join Natasha as they discuss current topics in Mormonism surrounding sexuality.They discuss the term “non-consensual immorality” and how this is not a “thing,” the Protect LDS Children movement, the situation surrounding Joseph Bishop and go into depth of one man’s experience who found his sexual perpetrator was recently called to be a bishop.

During the conversation, Natasha realizes she is a possible mandatory reporter for this man’s experience. As she processes the situation with Kristin and Amy, she realizes she needs to report the perpetrator. Please note that Natasha consulted with her professional ethics/legal board and has placed a call to child protective services in regards to the case discussed in the podcast. Natasha also consulted with the couple in question before she placed any report.
