The Mark Hoffman saga is in the news because of the Netflix documentary.
In response to the Hoffman events, President Oaks delivered a detailed, masterful address, which you can read here:
I bolded that last sentence because it epitomizes my approach to all of this. I strongly favor and encourage people making informed decisions. That's why I don't accept the revisionist history designed to accommodate M2C and SITH. That's also why I disagree with the censorship-based editorial policies of the M2C citation cartel.
I don't expect LDS scholars to vary from their dogmatic enforcement of M2C and SITH. Book of Mormon Central, for example, has M2C embedded in its logo. After decades of promoting M2C, it is probably impossible, psychologically, for the scholars to become open to alternatives to M2C, let alone change their minds.
But their intellectual rigidity doesn't matter to those who, as President Oaks says, "pursue our search for truth."
