Friday Poll: E. Packer’s Revised TalkBy: wheatmeister
Just a quick recap.
E. Packer gave a talk in General Conference that many considered controversial. Controversy centered around: 1) the implication that homosexuality is a choice and homosexuals can change, and 2) that the Proclamation on the Family was canonized revelation and therefore binding to members.
Fueled by recent gay teen suicides in the news, the HRC (Human Rights Campaign) threatened to descend on Temple Square en masse to protest. The church office building fielded thousands of calls from members complaining about the talk. When the text of the talk was published, it was altered. The church’s PR department gave an official response to the HRC. In the meanwhile, some orthodox members have created a Facebook campaign to support E. Packer in this controversy.
So, with all this going on, what’s your take? Let’s poll and find out!
