A disaffected Mormon leader insists the LDS prophet is a fraud — and he’s taking him to a British court in hopes of proving it.
Tom Phillips, a former Mormon bishop and stake president, asserts, among other claims, that LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson has "made representations ... which were ... untrue or misleading" — including that "there was no death on this planet prior to 6,000 years ago" and that "all humans alive today are descended from just two people who lived approximately 6,000 years ago" — to "make a gain for himself or another."
And Phillips expects to see the 86-year-old Mormon leader in court — unless Monson "pleads guilty."
"This is a serious matter," Phillips said Wednesday in a phone interview from his home in England. "If President Monson believes in the Book of Mormon, he will show up. If he has any concern for Mormons in Britain, he will show up. And if he doesn’t show up, then an arrest warrant will be issued."
