Do you believe the church is bending to "social justice" pressure? At one point the LDS church seemed like the perfect church for white culture.

  • Book of Mormon clearly says white skin is preferable (white and delight-some) and cursing with a skin of blackness (2 Nephi 5:21)
  • Blacks cannot have the priesthood due to being the descendants of Cain (changed in 1978),
  • In 1930's the LDS church under the direction of Heber J. Grant consistently paid respects to the National Socialist movement under Adolf Hitler

Also, do you (((know)))?

Yes, the LDS church is undeniably bending to SJWs and it’s heartbreaking. I honestly didn’t believe it could happen and I’m still hopeful it will turn around. Sometimes I feel like I’m shouting into a canyon and all I hear in return are echoes.

I don't think it is at the top. While at conference this year they did talk about not associating with racism and sexism (though truely that would apply to the left). The third talk by Oaks laid it out. https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2017/10/the-plan-and-the-proclamation

What I would like to see more of is the not associating with groups who's teachings are contrary to the teachings of the church. It's very clear that feminism's teaching that marriage is bad and promotion of rebellion from within institutions is contrary to the teachings of the church.

I wish the church would teach that you should bring the church into the world and not the world into the church. If some of these women attempted to teach how important Jesus is to them at feminist rallies and get bood, they would see how incompatible they are. If you can't espose the values of the Proclimation among them then it's not company worth keeping. Jesus walked among sinner, but he walked among sinners that would listen to him. These women that identify as feminists in the church are litterally giving power to a group that wants to destroy the chuch.

SocJus Mormonism? That would be one scary religion. Almost as scary as SocJus Islam.
