Have you ever heard the myth that Alice Cooper was a Mormon? It turns out that’s partially true. Historian John Hamer and Apostle Lachlan MacKay of the Community of Christ will talk about some lively Mormon meetings, and we’ll talk a little bit about Alice Cooper as well. GT: No, this is great. We’ve talked about Sidney Rigdon and some of the others. John: Oh, by the way, even though his church atomized, there is an extant Rigdonite-tradition church, and it’s called the Church of Jesus Christ. It’s headquartered in Monongahela, Pennsylvania. A lot of times people, outsiders, call them the Bickertonites. They don’t particularly like that. It’s names after William Bickerton who was an early leader of that church after Sidney Rigdon. So that is in the Rigdon tradition and it is sometimes seen as the third largest of the extant branches from 1844 with Brighamites being the largest, Josephites, or Community of Christ/RLDS Tradition being the second largest; third-largest being Rigdonite or Bickertonite branch, so they are a very interesting group. They are headquartered in Monongahela, Pennsylvania. They have kind of a Kirtland-era church where they do feet-washing. They have their little pentocostal—they do everything by the spirit. They don’t write down the talks. You have to do it by the spirit, just like praying by the spirit…. GT: Oh, wow. John: …and other interesting things like that. They were the first restoration-tradition church to have a black apostle back in the 1920s. GT: Oh, wow. John: So there is all kinds of—who is the—Alice Cooper. Lachlan: Oh, his dad. GT: I’m glad you mentioned that. John: Alice Cooper, I’m trying to remember his name. Alice Cooper’s is named, I don’t remember, Nephi or something like that. GT: [Ether Moroni Furnier]. John: Yeah, so he was one of the presidents or one of the apostles. His grandfather was like one of the apostles. [Alice] is not like an active member. He was raised in the church. I don’t think he was actually even baptized. GT: You said they were Pentecostal. Did they speak in tongues? John: That’s what I meant by Pentecostal. I don’t mean modern Pentecostal. GT: Oh, not modern Pentecostal. John: No, not modern Pentecostal.
