Valerie Hudson Of FAIR Is A Liar

Topic: VALERIE HUDSON   -Link To MC Article-
This weekend at the FAIR conference, Valerie Hudson stated two complete lies:

From the Mormon owned Deseret News:

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/70...

Lie #1 :
"There is no relation between The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the LDS Church or Mormons, and the polygamist FLDS or Jeffs"
There is a FULL relation between the FLDS and the LDS church. The FLDS church broke off during the first polygamy manifesto. They use the same Book of Mormon. They both believe that Joseph Smith restored the gospel. Both believe in eternal polygamy while the LDS church only allows polygamy AFTER a spouse has died, the FLDS believe polygamy is still on the earth. It is the sole reason they broke off from the LDS church - they believed the church had fallen due to Brigham Young's prophecy.

From WIKI:
The residents in the area of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Arizona, have a long history of practicing plural marriage, dating to the mid-19th century. Brigham Young, then President of the LDS Church, once visited the area stating, "This will someday be the head and not the tail of the church."[30] The twin cities were once known as Short Creek, officially founded in 1913 as a ranching community.

The FLDS traces its claim to spiritual authority to accounts, starting with a statement published in 1912 by Lorin C. Woolley, of a purported 1886 divine revelation to then-LDS Church President John Taylor. They see this 1886 revelation as precluding validity of the 1890 Manifesto against new plural marriages by church members, issued by Wilford Woodruff, whom the LDS Church recognizes as Taylor's successor.[31] After the formal abandonment of plural marriage by the LDS Church, many members around Short Creek and elsewhere continued, and even solemnized, plural marriages. In 1904, the LDS Church issued the Second Manifesto and eventually excommunicated those who continued to solemnize or enter into new plural marriages.
Lie # 2:
"The new and everlasting covenant, colloquially known (by Mormons) as temple marriage, is an eternal principle of the highest importance" and is based on a monogamous relationship between one man and one woman"
Doctrine and Covenants section 132 clearly states that the plurality of wives is the only way to secure an eternal life - gain exaltation and become a God.

There are currently (as of Aug 9 2011) three living Mormon Apostles that have been married AND SEALED to more than one woman using Temple Marriage.

Dallin Oaks is one of them:
"When I was 66, my wife June died of cancer.

"Two years later--a year and a half ago--I married [in the LDS temple] Kristen McMain, the eternal companion who now stands at my side."
(Dallin Oaks, "Timing," speech delivered at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, 29 January 2002

Note "married [in the LDS temple]" and "eternal companion". Dallin was already temple married to June Oaks and she is and continues to be his "eternal companion". Dallin Oaks is polygamist. Mormonism continues to teach AND practice polygamy through temple ceremonies.

In April 2006, Mormon Apostle Russell M. Nelson married Wendy L. Watson "for time and all eternity" in the Mormon temple in Salt Lake City. Nelson's was previously married "for time and all eternity" to Dantzel White.

Lets look at Doctrine and Covenants section 132 (taken from author JoD3:360):

Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Nauvoo, Illinois, recorded 12 July 1843, relating to the new and everlasting covenant, including the eternity of the marriage covenant, and also the plurality of wives (see History of the Church, 5:501-7). Although the revelation was recorded in 1843, it is evident from the historical records that the doctrines and principles involved in this revelation had been known by the Prophet since 1831.

1 - Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you my servant Joseph, that inasmuch as you have inquired of my hand to know and understand wherein I, the Lord, justified my servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as also Moses, David and Solomon, my servants, as touching the principle and doctrine of their having many wives and concubines-

2 - Behold, and lo, I am the Lord thy God, and will answer thee as touching this matter.

3 - Therefore, prepare thy heart to receive and obey the instructions which I am about to give unto you; for all those who have this law revealed unto them must obey the same.

4 - For behold, I reveal unto you a new and an everlasting covenant; and if ye abide not that covenant, then are ye damned; for no one can reject this covenant and be permitted to enter into my glory.

17 - For these angels did not abide my law; therefore, they cannot be enlarged, but remain separately and singly, without exaltation, in their saved condition, to all eternity; and from henceforth are not gods, but are angels of God forever and ever.

19 - And again, verily I say unto you, if a man marry a wife by my word, which is my law, and by the new and everlasting covenant, and it is sealed unto them by the Holy Spirit of promise, by him who is anointed, unto whom I have appointed this power and the keys of this priesthood; and it shall be said unto them-Ye shall come forth in the first resurrection; and if it be after the first resurrection, in the next resurrection; and shall inherit thrones, kingdoms, principalities, and powers, dominions, all heights and depths-then shall it be written in the Lamb's Book of Life, that he shall commit no murder whereby to shed innocent blood, and if ye abide in my covenant, and commit no murder whereby to shed innocent blood, it shall be done unto them in all things whatsoever my servant hath put upon them, in time, and through all eternity; and shall be of full force when they are out of the world; and they shall pass by the angels, and the gods, which are set there, to their exaltation and glory in all things, as hath been sealed upon their heads, which glory shall be a fulness and a continuation of the seeds forever and ever.

AND THE PROMISE---

20 - Then shall they be gods, because they have no end; therefore shall they be from everlasting to everlasting, because they continue; then shall they be above all, because all things are subject unto them. Then shall they be gods, because they have all power, and the angels are subject unto them.

63 - But if one or either of the ten virgins, after she is espoused, shall be with another man, she has committed adultery, and shall be destroyed; for they are given unto him to multiply and replenish the earth, according to my commandment, and to fulfil the promise which was given by my Father before the foundation of the world, and for their exaltation in the eternal worlds, that they may bear the souls of men; for herein is the work of my Father continued, that he may be glorified.

Modern Day Mormon Polygamy - Don't Let Them Fool You Into Believing They No Longer Practice It
Thursday, Aug 18, 2011, at 07:21 AM

Topic: VALERIE HUDSON   -Link To MC Article-
Just to keep this first and foremost in the public eye.

There are three living (as of August 2011) Mormon Apostles that are polygamists. And to ensure that I am not talking about those "other" polygamists (you know, those Fundamentalists that are in no way connected to the real LDS church), I am talking about "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", the one headquartered in downtown Salt Lake City Utah, with one Thomas S. Monson as Prophet, Seer and Revelator.

Three living Mormon Apostles are polygamists.

Dallin H. Oaks, Russell M. Nelson and L. Tom Perry are all married under the "New and everlasting covenant" to two women. All three were sealed in a Mormon temple using the Mormon temple ceremony of Marriage Sealing. All three are "celestial polygamists".

This means that while all three have one living wife, all three have two spiritual wives. And while Valerie Hudson stated at a recent FAIR conference that the Mormon "new and everlasting covenant" is "a monogamous relationship between one man and one woman", Dallin, Russell and Tom have proven that it is not.

So when Mormons tell you that they are not polygamists they are not being completely truthful. They may not be temporal polygamists, but they are celestial polygamists. In Mormon heaven they can and will have more than one wife.

Oops, She Did It Again
Monday, Mar 25, 2013, at 05:54 PM
Original Author(s): Bridget Jack Jeffries
Topic: VALERIE HUDSON   -Link To MC Article-
Valerie M. Hudson [1] has co-authored a new article in the April 2013 Ensign arguing for her usual egalitarian take on Mormon patriarchy. I have mixed feelings on Hudson. I think her heart is in the right place in that she seems to genuinely want what she regards as egalitarian relationships within Mormonism. What she says in her article about social science supporting the efficacy and satisfaction of egalitarian relationships over hierarchical ones is spot on; I might have written it myself. However, I also regard her as an impediment to true feminist reform of Mormonism, because she apologizes for patriarchal structures within the church that disenfranchise women, and does so by wrapping those structures in a pretty faux-feminist doily, thus maintaining that said structures are empowering to women and in no need of serious change. For example, her 2010 FAIR presentation essentially came down to arguing that women do not need the priesthood because they can give birth. It was the most poetic and well-written rendition of "women don't need priesthood because they can have babies" that I have ever heard, but in the end, it was still "women don't need power/authority XYZ because they can be mothers"-which is one of the oldest and most trite anti-feminist arguments on the books.

The Hafens' Translation

This blog post is not primarily a critique of Hudson's "feminist" (if you can even call it that) religious philosophy. Rather, it is about her serial abuse of the Hebrew language. Namely, this:

God also provided that Adam and Eve would rule together, as Elder Bruce C. Hafen, formerly of the Seventy, and his wife, Marie, explained:

"Genesis 3:16 states that Adam is to `rule over' Eve, but this doesn't make Adam a dictator. . Over in `rule over' uses the Hebrew bet, which means ruling `with,' not ruling `over.' ." [2]

Except that it doesn't. When the Hafens published their original Ensign article in 2007, Nitsav of Faith-Promoting Rumor blogged this critical analysis of their claims regarding Hebrew:

The claim is that the preposition bet (the letter b) should be translated as "with" not "over." This is problematic for several reasons.

First, bet has many translational values in English- "in" "into" "at" "on" "by means of" "when" "among" and also "with." However, "with" is fairly rare and somewhat indirect. Most often when the Hebrew writers wanted to say "with" or "in the company of" they use `et or `im (the consonantal inverse of Arabic ma'a, the typical Arabic word for "with").

Second, as in many other languages, some verbs have a fixed preposition for governing objects. In English, for example, one listens, but one listens to something. When the verb "to listen" has an object, the preposition used between the object and the verb must be to. Similarly, the Hebrew verb "to rule" in the Genesis passage is mashal. When mashal governs an object, the mediating preposition is always bet. It is clear from all other occurrences of this verb that the meaning is one of ruling, governance, authority etc.. A king mashals b- his people. Joseph mashaled b-Egypt in Gen. 45:8. There are lots of other examples establishing this.

Nitsav calls the Hafens' translation (which Hudson relies on) "indefensible from a scholarly perspective." He goes on for several more paragraphs about why mashal b- in Genesis 3:16 cannot be translated "rule with" (it's really worth it to click and read his article in full). And note that the Hafens do not teach that "rule with" is one possible alternate translation; they teach that "rule over" is completely wrong and that "rule with" is the only correct translation (!).

I have but a paltry undergraduate minor in Hebrew myself, but I have done a little bit of legwork on this. I would add to what Nitsav writes that "rule with" makes little sense thematically. In Gen. 3:14-19, YHWH lays out a series of negative consequences for the serpent, the woman, and the man (respectively) on account of what the three of them have done. The consequences are as follows:

  • The serpent is cursed above all other livestock, will crawl on its belly and eat dust, and will experience conflict with the woman, its offspring in turn experiencing conflict with her offspring.
  • The woman will experience severe toil in labor and childbirth, her desire will be for her husband, and he will rule over her.
  • The man will only be able to draw food from the ground via severe toil and will experience a return to the dust from which he was formed, i. e. death.

Most of those things are overwhelmingly and obviously negative. There may be a ray of light for the serpent in that it will "strike the heel" of the woman's offspring (v. 15), and some would argue that for the woman to desire her husband isn't a bad thing (v. 16). (I'll come back to that in a second.) Still, why would YHWH stop in the midst of all that foreboding news to declare glorious egalitarian partnership between husband and wife? And if egalitarianism is the result of the Fall, what was the pre-Fall order between husband and wife? Patriarchy? If so, shouldn't that be what Christian men and women should seek to emulate? It should be clear by now that superimposing a positive prescription for egalitarian marriage in the middle of all that does violence to the narrative.

Let's go back to "desire" in v. 16 though, because I think Nitsav fails to mention a very important occurrence of mashal b-. The Hebrew word for "desire" in v. 16, teshuwqah, is uncommon, appearing only 3 times in the entire Hebrew Bible (Gen. 3:16, Gen. 4:7, and SoS 7:10). Its proximity to Gen. 4:7 is not accidental. Let's compare the two:

Gen. 3:16 To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire (teshuwqah) shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you (mashal b-)." (NRSV)

Gen. 4:7 "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is lurking at the door; its desire (teshuwqah) is for you, but you must master it (mashal b-)." (NRSV)

The two verses are intentionally parallel, similar in meaning. So if Gen. 3:16 means that Adam and Eve are supposed to rule jointly in egalitarian partnership, what does Gen. 4:7 mean? That Cain is supposed to have egalitarian partnership with his sin? The only thing that makes any sense for either of these verses is "rule over," not "rule with." The verses predict a struggle for power between the two parties in question (woman and man, sin and Cain).

As a final note, I consulted 26 English translations of the Bible prior to publishing this article (ASV, BBE, CEB, CJB, Darby, DR, ESV, GNT, GWT, HCS, HNV, KJV, NASB, NCV, NIV, NIrV, NKJV, NLT, NRSV, RSV, TNIV, TMB, WEB, Webster, Wycliffe, YLT). I also consulted the Joseph Smith Translation, which had this verse at 3:22. Number of Bibles that translated Gen. 3:16 with a hierarchical clause (rule over, be lord of, have dominion over, master, be subject to, etc.):

27

Number of translations that translated Gen. 3:16 with an egalitarian clause (rule with, etc.):

0

Number of translations that listed an egalitarian clause in the footnotes as an alternative translation:

0

There is only one correct way to translate Gen. 3:16, and that is with a hierarchical clause. It does not mean "rule with" in any way, shape or form. It is not even a minority variant translation of the text.

Hudson's Abuse

The Hafens are not Hebrew scholars. As far as I'm aware, they are not scholars or academics of any sort. Bruce has a BA in political science from BYU and a law degree from the University of Utah, and I can't find any biographical information or academic publications for Marie. Their 2007 article claims that "Donald W. Parry, Brigham Young University professor, helped with the Hebrew translations." Dr. Parry was one of my Hebrew professors at BYU, and I do not know the specifics of what his "help" consisted of in this case. I only know that the Hafens' Hebrew is very wrong. I also know that I can forgive a few well-meaning ecclesiastical leaders for fudging their Hebrew in one publication.

Valerie Hudson is another story, because Hudson is a respected scholar and academic-albeit in political science and not Hebrew. Regardless, she should know better than to cite ecclesiastical leaders with no training in Hebrew to contest a point of Hebrew grammar. I would not let a freshman undergraduate get away with that sort of authority fallacy in his or her term paper, let alone a woman with a doctorate and accolades for her work in another scholarly field.

On top of this, Hudson has been made aware of the severe problems with the Hafens' claims, and yet she continues to cite the Hafens as authoritative on the subject completely absent of qualification. On April 15, 2009, she left the following comment on Nitsav's FPR post:

Hi, Nitsav, Elder Bruce C. Hafen obtained his translation from Professor Don Parry of BYU, renowned Hebrew scholar who is working on the Dead Sea Scroll translation. His email is donald_parry@byu.edu . I have a feeling he has very good reasons for his translation.

Does Hudson truly not understand that the private and unpublished theory of single scholar at a single university does not undo the entire corpus of Hebrew grammar that applies to this verse? Or the extensive translation work that has been done on it? Until her favored translation is published in a peer-reviewed journal and gains widespread acceptance among Hebrew scholars, Hudson has no business telling unsuspecting Mormons that "rule over" translations of Gen. 3:16 are incorrect. These people are putting their trust in her academic expertise, and she is disingenuously misleading them.

Hudson has not merely done this once or twice though; she seems to do it in every article that she writes or presentation that she does arguing for her egalitarian take on Mormon doctrine. For example:

The list goes on. Always the same citation of Hafen or the Hafens, always without any kind of qualification. And now, Hudson has perpetuated this mistranslation of Gen. 3:16 into the Ensign for the entire LDS church to consume (again).

Conclusion

I need to be clear that I am a member of and have published some articles with Christians for Biblical Equality. I believe in the ordination of women and advocate for them to be able to exercise their full range of spiritual gifts in the Body of Christ. Since we see the Bible as our ultimate authority on matters of faith, we often write essays arguing for egalitarian understandings of passages that seem to limit women's roles in the church or subject them to men. We're the people who argue things like "`head' in 1 Cor. 11 can carry the sense of `source'" and "1 Tim 2:12 can mean `to usurp authority' or `to assume authority,' not just `to hold authority.'" If there were any legs at all to this theory-if it were at all a valid minority translation of this verse-you would have found avid supporters in our ranks decades ago.

But we are also in a constant sparring match with other evangelical scholars, i. e. the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. If we published such an irresponsible argument concerning the translation of Gen. 3:16, it would be Christmas come early for CBMW. We would hear no end of how we're manipulating the biblical text to support our own agenda, and they would have a slam-dunk case against us. I've discussed this Hafen/Hudson/Parry translation with several scholars affiliated with CBE, and they agree. There is just no merit to it whatsoever.

The 8th Article of Faith states that Mormons believe the Bible to be the word of God "as far as it is translated correctly." Does Valerie Hudson believe in the 8th Article of Faith?

--

[1] Some articles and blog posts refer to Valerie Hudson as "Valerie M. Hudson," "Valerie Hudson," or "Valerie Hudson Cassler." I do not know which she prefers. I've chosen to refer to her here as "Valerie Hudson" since it's easiest and "Cassler" is absent from the byline of her most recent Ensign article. Though the Ensign article is co-authored by Richard B. Miller along with Hudson, and he certainly bears some of the blame in this case for not checking his co-author's sources or questioning her authority fallacy, I am treating this argument as exclusively Hudson's because I know it to be one of her staples.

[2] Hudson is citing Bruce C. and Marie K. Hafen, "Crossing Thresholds and Becoming Equal Partners," Ensign, Aug. 2007, 27.
