    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    As long as they are healthy -- and the next in line is regarded as being a healthy 93.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    So far no one has refused so I don't know. They've all worked until the day they died.

    There were enough members angry about the NYT obit that the NYT published an explanation of what an obit is. https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5...b003133ecd2246

    I would think that church members would be proud of their leader standing up for what he considered right, and should be proud that it was part of his obituary.

    People signing the petition for the Times to rewrite the obit makes it look like they don't agree with the stand he took, which doesn't make sense to me. Isn't the leader of the Mormon church supposed to be infallible?

    The petitioners are proud of President Monson; they are upset the newspaper was criticizing the church in the way it described church policies of the last ten years.
