They acknowledged that a member of their church made a terrible mistake and took decisive action to correct it. They also made a public apology. That is good enough for me - we all make mistakes.

No no no...

we're first.

They still have "blacks were cursed" in their scriptures.

We've been pushing for their apology for that.

So you have to wait in line.

Sorry.

This isn't the first time they have been caught doing this. Why isn't there someone going through the names checking for this before they send these names out to a temple? From what I also understand, because they have a shortage of names, they are the same names to several temples at the same time to make work for the members to do.

When you do stuff that is not from biblical scripture and start making up mess...trouble always follows.
