Mike Tannehill makes his triumphant return to defend Bruce R. McConkie as Glenn, John, and Bob’s take on evolution; the 2nd of McConkie’s 7 Deadly Heresies.
The title “Infants on Thrones” is an homage to the Mormon Founder Joseph Smith who said, in his lesser-known King Follet discourse, that “Eternity is full of thrones, upon which dwell thousands of children, reigning on thrones of glory, with not one cubit added to their stature.”
It is a funny image, but it also suggests that we, as amateur podcasters, do not really have all the answers we may think we do. We can’t take ourselves too seriously. We are also Infants on Thrones.

The last frock in the Week of Tannehill series, this was originally published in March 2014. Mike Tannehill joins us once again for this unofficial follow-up to The Unintentional Racist to discuss the recent LDS.com essay on Noah’s Ark with Randy, Scott, Jake, Erica, and Glenn.
Here is the link to the Meridian article in defense of Noah’s Ark.
And here is the LDS.org essay Noah.
Mike Tannehill (love him or hate him) is fighting the good fight against the Mormon church. Or at least against the influence of those liberal academic types trying to re-write church history — more specifically those authors of the recent essay Race and the Priesthood on LDS.org who would have us believe that church doctrine is nothing more than the “theories” of racist men influenced by a racist time who simply could not call down a revelation from God until 1978. Listen in as Mike explains how he remains True to the Faith. When the enemy assaileth, shall he shirk or shun the fight? NO!!!
Bob, Jake, Glenn, and Matt talk to Mike Tannehill about the devil — and evil – and his whole develish role in the Plan of Salvation — and a whole bunch of other stuff. This episode was originally published in Oct 2014.
What does the “latter day” in Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints actually mean? When is the end of the world coming and what are the signs that it is near? This was the 14th episode of Infants on Thrones, originally published in April 2013, and it is a doozy.
