Thanks for this info. I can suggest at least two more examples where
a religious organization quickly changed for the better. First,
after Elijah Muhammad died, his son had the courage and conscience to
reject the most fantastic and hateful aspects of the father's
teachings and move the former Nation of Islam back more to the
(Which then inspired the true believers to secede and form their own
NOI group now led by Farrakhan.) Another case is the Community of
Christ, formerly the Reorganized LDS Church:
While they don't reject Joseph Smith entirely, they accept criticism
of the Book of Mormon as a 19th century production, something still
anathema in the Utah church. And have generally moved away from the
more problematic aspects of Mormonism.
