"The ancient practice where only one group is able to exercise the priesthood and work in the temple has little in common with modern times when everyone is able to hold the priesthood except for one group."

o NEW: One thing I noticed in the Dnews today. I am putting this in the zoob category because I have heard many people claim that BYU speaks for the church in doctrinal matters.

o NEW: Please let's not make this about how crappy BYU is. The professor may have been made the lightning rod but the response is way bigger than him. (nm)

alUmnUs icon NEW: I know what he said. I absolutely do not agree with his explanatory reasoning, but tell me again why we're now labeling him as "the racist?" Because he's an easy target?

o NEW: Yeah the "chink in the armor" thing wasn't racist but it was offensive.

3UteDad icon NEW: I need to be educated...so saying demeaning or disparaging things about a particular race isn't racist, it's just offensive? (nm)

o NEW: Are things done on the BET or UPN channels offensive to whites? Yes is it racist no.

3UteDad icon NEW: I think context makes a big difference here. Something said by a satirist or a comedian will be construed much differently than something said by a news commentator or academician. (nm)

o NEW: Ok so that is the line context? Black guy in a black club can make fun of white people.

3UteDad icon NEW: Malcolm X was most definitely a racist at one point in his life. I have a feeling you tossed this out there without knowing a lot about his background. (nm)

alUmnUs icon NEW: Since I'm a non-white, active Mormon myself, I guess I'll hold on to the title of racist douche until someone wants to actually talk semantics instead of just calling every white Mormon who has an opinion about blacks and the priesthood a "racist." (nm)

alUmnUs icon NEW: You think cultural prejudices (which exist in a variety of forms amongst all groups, organizations and religions) was manifested by the Mormon church specifically against it's black members via the question of Priesthood ordination? Please explain.

alUmnUs icon NEW: Then there are other guys, like Keith Hamilton (who is actually black) that speak their mind and say things about this topic that make sense to a lot of people concerned with the issue. Not trying to paint to broad of a stroke with what I'm about

alUmnUs icon NEW: The ordination of Priesthood has been withheld from different groups of people at different times throughout the course of scripture as we know it. (nm)

alUmnUs icon NEW: And I disagree with the ties the author is attempting to knot in that statement. (Some mod should recat this religion).

o NEW: It's also intimately tied to getting into heaven and the full blessings promised to faithful members of the church. Withholding was spiritual apartheid. It meant families with a black member chould not be eternal like the others.

o NEW: He says he was misquoted. So yeah we may say give him the benefit of the doubt. But I don't believe he is clarifying the way in which he was misquoted.

uteinlogan icon NEW: I think that's a bit unfair. It's not like those ratings are based off of those recent comments. Maybe everything else he teaches is just the opposite in nature and this was his first real error. (nm)

uteinlogan icon NEW: Not that I'm defending him but I don't think it's fair to clump all byu students in with him. They are just going to school. (nm)

o NEW: Agreed. Because these kinds of actions require all members of the Quorum of the 12 to agree, it had to wait until a few of them died off. (nm)

UtahUte72 icon NEW: Somehow I can't help but think we will be having this same discussion about allowing Gays to hold the priesthood several years from now.
