No wonder I left the church. I knew the church was full of it when I was 10. And with BS statements like this, can't all of the YM & YW see though it:

“We hope you’ve got the message: You have no option to bounce around,” he said, referring to a common practice dubbed ward-hopping in which young Mormons shop around for congregations they like.“We know where you are. We’ve got our radar focused on you.”

Yeah, right.

"Ballard and other speakers acknowledged that the Utah-based faith was worried about massive losses of members in this age group"

More like Ballard is worried about the massive losses in tithing.

I accidentally down voted your comment but I meant to give you props. What you said is absolutely right. The church leaders are aware that the younger generation is more likely to think critically and rationally rather than accept the b.s. That the antiquated and false church spews based on blind faith. As a result more and more young people are leaving the church. It doesn't take a prophet to foresee that the church will have serious financial problems if this trend continues and becomes more widespread as I believe it will due to the fact that it's about time these Mormons pull their heads out of their @$$3$ and realize they've been lied to.

“Good day to you!”
