Your church teaches that black people were denied the priesthood for most of the history of Christianity and all of the history of the Jewish religion.
"We don't know why God does what he does".
But we all know... this entire teaching about blacks being denied the priesthood... it CAME FROM RACIST BAPTISTS.
So... as of TODAY
While the scholar may face excommnication...
The MORMON CLERGY OFFICIALLY STAND ON THE NOTION THAT BLACKS WERE DENIED THE PRIESTHOOD.
This notion, obviously from Baptists and Methodists folk tales of the 1700s and 1800s did NOT COME FROM GOD.
Teaching that blacks were not cursed, as one Mormon scholar has tried,
GOT HIM ALMOST EXCOMMUNICATED
Thomas W. Murphy
Your religious books get changed anyway.
<quoted text>you seem Like an intelligent person , however you are clueless about so much. We are not monsters who teach hate. Most of us are loving, kind and compassionate people. Yes that is a church teaching but it does not define us.
