We are calling upon the LDS Church and any other group claiming to have a “Book of Mormon geography neutral” position to STOP endorsing countries south of the United States.

The LDS Church has been funding research contrary to its “neutral” position since 1948,1,2 and has been endorsing said countries through its printed materials before then.

To demonstrate its “neutral” position, we suggest a MORATORIUM on all things south of the United States for a period equal to the time given—65 years; and equal man hours, finances, BYU resources, etc. allotted to produce equal number of films, images, excavations, and research papers based on where the plates came forth in western New York.
