    I think this will have the opposite effect. They might gain some liberal members, but conservative mormons will reject this and leave. In the end, the LDS church will become a bunch of liberals and self-destruct.

    From your fingers to God's eyes. Nelson's other talk made me so ticked that I started crying.

    My daughter Faith just came back from Utah and got to visit the Welcome Center to ask the sisters a few questions. She asked about this, and they hemmed and hawed about "continual revelation", and she asked why God kept changing his mind.

    yep continuing revelation would be new revelation that added to old revelation, not outright contradicted it.
