Don’t be like Thomas

QUOTE: “Filled with compassion for all, and especially for the children, we wrestled at length to understand the Lord’s will in this matter. Ever mindful of God’s plan of salvation and of His hope for eternal life for each of His children, we considered countless permutations and combinations of possible scenarios that could arise. We met repeatedly in the temple in fasting and prayer and sought further direction and inspiration. And then, when the Lord inspired His prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, to declare the mind of the Lord and the will of the Lord, each of us during that sacred moment felt a spiritual confirmation. It was our privilege as Apostles to sustain what had been revealed to President Monson. Revelation from the Lord to His servants is a sacred process.” -President Russell M. Nelson, 10 January 2016, speaking of a decision made to excommunicate church members who married another person of the same gender and to proscribe baptism from children of gay parents. [source]

COMMENTARY: Of course it was revelation. Jesus loves all children. But he doesn’t want the kids of those icky homosexuals in heaven with him. What if one of them has the gay and Jesus catches it? That would ruin the whole plan of salvation. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
