I was trying to suggest that the doctrine of trinity, with its idea of a universal constant referred to as "God" and manifest as the three personages, is based on a true LDS doctrine of a manifestation of a constant standard of what is a God in infinite forms of exalted Gods. Not that the defective doctrine is true, but that it comes from a variation on the truth.
The problem is that the doctrine of the trinity is so convoluted we cannot if discuss it without being subject to the same requirements of confusion and misunderstanding. Not much simpler is it?
