The title above turns my stomach. This is my damn church. What the hell are we doing!!!
During my brother’s full-time mission, he was called to serve as a zone leader. One of his responsibilities: take other teenage full-time missionaries behind closed doors and ask them is they masturbate. What the hell!!!
A teenager being tasked by his mission president to ask other teenagers “specific and explicit” sexual questions. This doesn’t qualify as inappropriate. IT….IS….HORRENDOUS.
Here’s a snippet of our recent conversation:
ME: How did you feel about that?
BRO: It was weird. I hated those interviews. Prying and asking those questions.
ME: Did any of the boys say they masturbated?
ME: What did you tell them?
BRO: Ummmm….Well….To stop doing it.
Dear General Authorities
When you give Seventies, Stake Presidents and Mission Presidents the directive to be “specific and explicit,” horrific unintended consequences are the result.
“Specific and explicit” questioning of our children has become a rampant practice. It is disgusting and dead wrong. All done behind closed doors, all alone with our precious children. STOP IT.
And then, to find out that you have tasked our teenage children to do the exact same thing. SHAME ON YOU.
