SCRIPTURE: “We do not believe it just to mingle religious influence with civil government, whereby one religious society is fostered and another proscribed in its spiritual privileges, and the individual rights of its members, as citizens, denied.” –D&C 134:9. [source]
COMMENTARY: Remember, kids, it was Satan’s plan to force people to do what was right, and God’s plan to allow everyone agency. In their overzealousness to “preserve the sanctity of traditional marriage,” today’s prophets have fallen into the temptation of following Satan, despite the fact that their scriptures spell out exactly how the church should behave in this case. This is an example of the prophets, in their human frailty, leading the church astray. When the choice is before you, do you “follow the prophet,” or do you follow Christ? I’d give you my advice, but what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
