Exactly TJ! The trusting person in the pew is not to blame - not the source of the problem. The problem comes when leaders Who Know (or ought to know) Better preach against their fellow human beings.
People are not being taught to question anything anymore. There is a time in recent US history when they were. I think I hit the tail end of that generation - but that is a larger discussion. It also involves the fact that thinking independently of the power structure (political, relgious, whatever) is now so actively discouraged it is maligned.
Following snippets of the BYU thread saddens me: I have a close loved one who was raised Mormon who tells me that in his generation they were taught to question, question, question everything, including the tenets they were taught in church, b/c the LDS church wanted educated strong believers who had come to own their faith through deep introspection and deep philosophical questioning of its teachings. But that has been changing for about 25 years.
