Institute for Religious Research (IRR)

This ministry is directed by Luke Wilson.  The ministry publishes a quarterly newsletter titled Heart and Mind.  As a subset of this ministry, they also have a web site called, Mormons in Transition, where disgruntled former members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can vent their anger.  No member of the LDS Church is allowed to respond with legitimate answers.
