Coldly cut off from the one and only true church, I had to wait until I got home to hear the inspired words of the Lord's anointed. Of course my primary sources were exmormons here in the states--most of whom seemed more interested in my sneak peak at Season Four of Downton Abbey.
Here are the few snippets of the 183rd Semi-Annual General Conference that I managed to gather:
- The feminist sisters from "Ordain Women" were gently turned away from the General Priesthood Session when the Brethren blocked their entrance with a garbage truck.
- Singles, divorcees, and gays were treated to yet another scolding from Dallin Oaks.
- President Dieter Uchtdorf humbly admitted that LDS Church leaders had "made a few mistakes" over the years, evidently with the hope that this would inspire the feminists, singles, divorcees, and gays (etc.) to come back to church.
- No word on whether they ever moved the garbage truck.
According to the Daily Mail, Prince Harry recently took in this hit show in the West End. Isn't that smashing?
My next challenge: figuring out where to escape during the April conference.
|Sorry President Uchtdorf, Carson's a way bigger rock star than you'll ever be.|
