In this interview Charlotte Pardee of Ex-Mormons for Jesus discusses her mission to Latter-Day Saints. From almost the opening line she expresses an understanding of Mormonism that I think has done a great deal of harm. But the long form of this interview will give you an insight into her goals, motivations and aspirations.
Though I used to live about a mile away from their information center, I have never had any contact with Ex-Mormons for Jesus. I believe I had a chance encounter with Charlotte outside of the opening of the Newport Beach Temple in 2005. She was handing out pamphlets on the street corner. I have met a couple of Evangelicals who ended their investigation of Mormonism after talking with someone from Ex-Mormons for Jesus. I believe her when she says she’s led many Mormons out of the LDS church but I question if her strategy and understanding of Mormonism has been the most effective over the long term. I do not think it’s helpful to assume a Mormon does not understand their own faith tradition when their beliefs do not match our outsider’s view of Mormonism.
