Letter: 'True' church has to keep changing its mind
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Would it be wrong for a Mormon bishop to marry a gay couple since it's now not against the law? Or would he be excommunicated for not breaking the law? If Mormons now believe marriage is only between one man and one woman, does that mean polygamist Joseph Smith was a false prophet or just slightly misled by the culture of the times?

And what was that long unsigned essay lately released from the church clarifying its inconsistent position regarding worthy male blacks holding/not holding the priesthood? It's becoming more and more embarrassing to explain why the true church is the true church!

Do you suppose when female U.S. presidents are as commonplace as male ones, Mormon women will finally be allowed to be priestesses with priestesshood?

Anything that is or becomes a fad just might get canonized on Temple Square. God's shifty, isn't He?
