Is the LDS Church In Its Rights To Shut Down A Dissenting View In Sacrament Meeting?September 16, 2009 at 4:57 pm | Posted in American politics | 7 Comments
Something about this just doesn’t seem very healthy to me. On a personal level, this man’s view or even testimony is no threat to me or my testimony. Nor is the truthfulness of the Gospel a threat by him sharing his dissenting views with a political move by the church as an organization. Is Sacrament Meeting so sacred a place that no politics should be discussed therein? Or just politics that the church approves of? Because, clearly politics are discussed from the pulpit in sacrament meeting. They are discussed in General Conference by the leadership of the Church. I linked in my earlier post of President David O McKay actually recommending during General Conference that church members read an extremist polemicist, Cleon Skousen. Something seems wrong to me about this.
