[Leonard Arrington]

I learn today that another person subjected to the inquisition of Elder [Mark E.] Petersen was Blake Ostler.

I learn also that Armand Mauss, when called in by his stake president, found him willing to talk about what he had been told by Elder Petersen. Elder Petersen asked the stake president to warn him that he should not be writing for such anti-Mormon and heretical publications as Dialogue. Obviously, Elder Petersen has not read enough of Dialogue to know whether it is anti-Mormon. Someone who he believes has been filling him full of this kind of crazy and misguided opinion. Tom Truitt? Roy Doxey? Calvin Rudd? Elder Packer? Elder Benson's son or sons?
