QUOTE: “And, to be perfectly frank, there have been times when members or leaders in the Church have simply made mistakes. There may have been things said or done that were not in harmony with our values, principles, or doctrine. I suppose the Church would be perfect only if it were run by perfect beings. God is perfect, and His doctrine is pure. But He works through us—His imperfect children—and imperfect people make mistakes.” -Dieter F. Uchtdorf, in General Conference, October 2013. [source]
COMMENTARY: It seems to me that honest mistakes would be discussed openly, and that continuing to hide, obscure, deny, and whitewash the facts points more toward an intent to deceive. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
