To my friends and family, this is not the doctrine of @Ch_JesusChrist and the fact that a BYU Professor and a member of the General Young Men’s Presidency would treat the issue of Race and the Priesthood like this is not acceptable.
And, if you go look for the four part essay regarding Race and the Priesthood of Ahmad Corbitt, who serves in the General Ypung Men’s Presidency as First Councilor, you can no longer easily find it. In the Church’s web materials.
So yes, let’s trot out the BYU professor of ancient scripture to minimize our racial sin and let’s minimize the words of his African American colleague, and let’s wonder why we are losing youth. #disappointed #disenchanted
Nothing he said there is consistent with the Gospel Topic Essay on Race in the Priesthood…
Brother Corbitt’s four part essay has long been cited by other works of the Church
But you click the link and you get this
So white victimization apparently has a more prominent role doctrinally in our theological explanation for our past racial sins than do the thoughtful considerations of an African American leader whose experiences we previously cited.
Here are the more thoughtful observations of this by @jkimballcook
@RosemaryCard got mansplained this week for challenging men for the way they criticize how women speak in Church settings. So I think it appropriate to call out the CES/EFY voice that so many male instructors in the Church utilize.
You have to ask if the Savior taught like Brad Wilcox, Hank Smith or John Bytheway? I don’t think so. Bad comic/smarmy victim/unmatured AP is not Christlike.

DC Fire Marshall Mitchell Kannary presents this morning to the @BOMAIntl Preparedness Committee #CRE #BOMA Image
Don’t make your building less safe and effective by interrupting your building’s fire safety systems.
Don’t prop doors open.
Keep doors closed.
Keep stairwells clear.
Poor maintenance of spinkler systems and fire panels regularly trigger false alarms that unnecessarily expend resources.

So is Glenn Youngkin what you get if Brett Kavanaugh had decided to run for office instead of pursue a career in the judiciary? Asking for a friend. Smarmy Frat Boy Conservatism is just not for me. #GOPHypocrisy #NotMyGOP
