You've Been Warned!

In just a matter of a few days, maybe only one or two, my next book I Fucked the Mormons will be available. It will unleash a horrible torrent of criticism toward me, toward the Mormon church, toward a random dog walking down the road. No soul shall be spared the wrath of Bailey Jones and her dedicated detractors!


In the spirit of full disclosure, I did just have a few whiskeys and a beer, so that might have slightly affected the writing of this post. Once my book is available on Amazon, I will let everyone know, then proceed to have a few more whiskeys, maybe some rum and pass out on the couch for a day or two.

I Fucked the Mormons Publishing Delays

Hey everyone,

This is going to be quick, because I'm obviously way the fuck behind on things. My upcoming book, I Fucked the Mormons, has been delayed for a number of reasons. I'm hoping to have it finished in the very near future, but I'm not promising anything until I know for sure.

Basically, this new book is taking me longer than my other two because it just seems so much more involved. It's more about my life now and how I'm doing after having left Mormonism, but still living in Utah. That's a pretty complicated issue to address, and I want to make sure I do it justice.

The book is also different from the other two, mostly because I've changed in the past few years. While I still have a problem with the Mormon church's control in the state, I'm more at peace with who I am and what I'm all about. I guess you could say I've been going through a transition of sorts lately -- I'll get into that in the book, so don't worry.

In any case, just wanted to let everyone know I'm hard at work and that hopefully we'll have a brand new book to help spread the good word of Bailey!

I'm Still Alive!

Hey everyone ~

If you're been worried that I'm dead in a ditch, or that the Mormon Danites tracked me down, relax. I'm alive and fine, just toiling away on my computer almost nonstop.

I've been really busy lately, thanks to many things, including working to get I Fucked the Mormons ready for all of you. In fact, working on my latest book has consumed so much of my time that I've been pretty absent from Twitter and Facebook lately, so apologies for people who've been looking for my funny posts.

My next book should be my best one yet -- at least that's what I think in my very biased opinion. I've definitely worked harder on it and am going to continue toiling away on it until things are up to my ever-so-lofty expectations.

Hopefully soon I'll have good news and a publication date. Until then, everyone keep spreading the good word of Bailey.

Check Out My Next Book's Cover!

As you can see, I've been hard at work on my next book, called I Fucked The Mormons. It's another memoir-style book like my first two, but this one touches more on my life after leaving the Mormon church, including my work spreading my own story around.

I hope you like the cover, it's symbolic in a way that should be pretty obvious. It likely will be tweaked a little before publication, but my full intent is to use this design on the finished book, once the manuscript is ready as well.

Mormon Church "Transparency"

I've been busy toiling away on my upcoming book, I Fucked the Mormons, but I just read something that really got me going. I saw this article in the Huffington Post about how the Mormon church just snapped some nice little photos of a "seer stone" that Joseph Smith used to supposedly translate the Book of Mormon.

I guess it's a nice article, if you don't know much of anything about Mormonism. It talks about how the Mormon church is finally opening up and becoming more transparent in an effort to dispel some of the mystery surrounding its founding, etc. That sounds nice, but it's complete and utter bullshit.

Allow me to explain.

First off, the church says that it always had the little stone in its possession, but until now it didn't do anything publicly with it. That's an interesting fact, and you could go ahead and believe the explanation that it's been revealed in an attempt to "come clean" about some things. The thing is that the Huffington Post article reads too much like a press release from the church, lacking any real journalism. For example, there's zero mention of how Joseph Smith used the seer stone. He put it into a hat and then stuck his face in there, which then showed him what to dictate to his scribe. That sounds ridiculous to anyone with a brain, and yet such an important detail (which is readily available to the public - it was even portrayed in South Park) was completely left out.

The article states that there were other methods that Joseph Smith used to "translate" the Book of Mormon. The writer doesn't even bother to mention what those other methods were. One was some ancient spectacles made of stone (you might even call them seer stones) called the Urimm and Thummin (no, really, those were the names - no lie). They were attached to a breastplate that was owned and used by a past prophet who supposedly lived in the ancient Americas and contributed to writing the Book of Mormon.

The author of the article doesn't even mention in passing that the Book of Mormon supposedly was written on plates of pure gold (how that works is a mystery to many). They also don't state that the book was supposedly written in a dead and forgotten language called Reformed Egyptian, which for all intents and purposes appears to be an invention of young Joseph Smith.

So people who don't know much about the church read this article and think, "the Mormons are finally coming clean and opening up." The truth is that they're releasing just a little bit of info to make it appear that way. Most people have no idea that the church has a PR department, let alone that it would give most Fortune 500 companies' PR departments a run for their money. In other words, there's quite a bit of slight of hand going on in the organization. While everyone's wowing over these pictures of a stone, the Mormon church is busy burying some weird-ass and damning facts from the public in general, hoping that nobody notices.

I have to hand it to the Mormon church, after lying for almost two centuries, it's become pretty adept at calling a spade a heart. In this media-soaked modern age, that's not an easy feat, but they've found a way to pull it off, at least to an extent. Of course, lazy journalism and wads of cash make doing that so much easier.

Speaking of wads of cash, if the Mormon church really wants to be transparent it should open up all of its financial records for scrutiny. Of course, it would never do that because such information would be incredibly damning and uncover just how deep the lies and deception run. If it were to do such a thing, many members of the church would turn around and walk away, never to return, realizing that their hard-earned money didn't go to what they'd believed.

That would be incredibly transparent, but the church would never, ever do such a thing. Instead, we get some pictures of a magical stone.

A Few Jokes About Mormons

Mormons sure can be a touchy bunch. After all, they've got this huge persecution complex thing going on, which is fed into regularly by leaders, literature and regular church visits. They're fighting the sins of the world constantly, because the rest of us are going to pin them to the floor and make them drink beer and coffee at the same damn time!

Needless to say, many Mormons really get offended when I poke fun at their religion. They're sick of hearing about their magic underwear and the prophet with his face in a hat. Well, I say fuck that. I'm posting some great jokes about Mormons just to prove that I don't care if Mormons have a stick shoved so far up their ass that they think it's their backbone.

Enjoy, everyone!
