I sit down virtually with The Conor Hilton (https://twitter.com/TheConorHilton (I grew up near tOSU, and learned by experience the value of a definite article!)) to discuss his claim to a guerrilla Mormonism. We discuss historical guerrilla precedents, including my namesakes and his, and then delve into what shapes his aesthetic militancy and radical pacifism, and where he's found Light, Knowledge, and a Sure Foundation in the teachings of the Prophets and Witnesses. We talk about the self-appointed gatekeepers and border agents who make scrappiness and agitation vital virtues for disciples who don't always know which pronunciation of Shibboleth to use when they hit a checkpoint, and we hope and imagine together that Better World where such things are Done Away.
