ONLY SILENCE: I admit that I’m not very up on the news, but as of 16 November 2015, I have seen no interviews with Rosemary M. Wixom, General Primary President; Bonnie L. Oscarson, General Young Women President; or Stephen W. Owen, General Young Men President. I would love to hear how they helped influence the policy and exactly how they think the new policy will better protect the children under their stewardships. Maybe it was one of these three who initially suggested this policy. After all, if anyone is going to be concerned about children, wouldn’t it be one of the people Christ asked specifically to care for all the children of the church?
COMMENTARY: I mean, I could be skeptical of the prophets and apostles and say my bet is that none of these three were even informed, let alone consulted, prior to the implementation of the policy. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
