N. Eldon Tanner served as an apostle from 1962 to1982. In October 1978 General Conference, he directed his remarks specifically to bishops. He called them out for having asked explicit sexual questions. YES!!! Obviously, the top church leaders have been aware of this problem at least the past 40 years. It’s time that we as Mormons heed the apostle’s words.
NEVER in general conference has an apostle given approval for explicit sexual questions being posed to our children. Nope…NEVER. On the other hand, an apostle, serving in the First Presidency, specifically forbid this type of behavior by our bishops. What our bishops have been doing to our children is NOT condoned by the apostles.
The Petition to Protect the Children calls for the same things that Elder Tanner spoke out about. Obviously, many of our bishops chose NOT to heed this apostolic warning. The carnage detailed in the sacred stories of our sacred children is the unfortunate result.
On March 30, 2018, one thousand concerned human beings will March-For-The-Children in support of Elder Tanner’s counsel. This will be an historic occasion in Mormon history. Marching both to protect our children and to show our support for the apostles.
Make plans to join us now. Arrange the day off, book your flight, put together your car pools. Bring your family, bring your kids, bring your friends. For most of us, this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. One that we will treasure with fondness for the rest of our lives.
