Is something brewing, about to begin?

League City Stake

This afternoon I received an amazing message.  The pertinent portion is paraphrased below.

Our stake has received a letter stating that no leader in any capacity, including bishop, can be alone with a minor.  Over the past week we have been working on implementing these provisions.  Sometime after August of this year, the policy will be introduced to the entire church.”

This person wants to remain anonymous and does not have a copy of the ‘letter.’

However, I do know that he/she is in the League City Stake which is just south Houston, Texas.  Yay Texas.

If this is true…..it’s HUGE!!!

Of course, this might not be what it seems.  Can you help?  I’d like to confirm that bishops are actually being restricted from one-on-one interviews.

If you live in the League City Stake, can you confirm that this is happening?

If you have contacts in the League City Stake could you ask them if this is accurate?

Has anyone heard of similar instructions being implemented in other stakes?

Does anyone have access to the ‘letter?’

Elder Bednar

Tonight, another person in whom I have total confidence, shared the following.  Elder Bednar recently made a comment along these lines:  “Big changes were announced at conference.  More are coming.  In fact, a tsunami of changes are on the way.”

_______________________________________

We know the the church will eventually be forced to stop one-on-one, sexually explicit interrogations of our children.  The changes might be closer than our wildest dreams would have expected.

Fingers crossed.  Never-the-less, we are not stopping until complete victory is won.

  2. Sam, I can only hope it us true. You have put much sweat and tears into this. Someone more important than any of us earthlings is listening. The fruits of your labors will be seen. Thank you from all members (even if they don’t know it or understand it)

  4. Better than the last justifications and the last start which backfired. It stil;l does not prevent the very worst scenario of sex verbal and emotional sex abuse – it still lets a zealot bishop- team up with a zealot part against the child sexually, much likme gang rape. They missed the important point, again… It also allows sexual bullying of adults to continue too.

    How about a new set of temple recommend questions, for leaders too, while we’re at it?

    1- Do you have faith in the leaders and a testimony that they will strive to follow Christ with your support and admonishment to seek member input to always follow Christ first, as He commanded through His True Law of Common Consent? Do do you strive earnestly to observe and uphold His Law to approve or reject all proposed commandments, policies and practices in His church? Do you strive to go back and propose rejecting those mistakes that have been approved in error by common consent, to provide necessary course corrections to restore His True course? Do you uphold reducing doctrinal clutter and not making endless laws and hoops to jump through as the Pharisees did?

    2- Do you sustain Jesus Christ as the head of His Own True Church and encourage leaders and members to follow Him first and not discard His many or even a few of His scriptural teachings? Moroni 10: 5,6,18,19 & 2 Nephi 4: 34 & 1 Nephi 8: 5-9

    4- Are You striving to be an example of Christ and His church, No VIP Free Passes, in being Honest in your dealings with your fellowmen?

    5- In your callings of leadership in home, community and church do you strive to practice the principles of Christ in not coercing, punishing or bullying others into obedience or perceived obedience? D&C 121 & D&C 89: 2 & D&C 46: 4-8

    6- Do you harass or reject others whom you perceive as less worthy, and bully them to follow Jesus (or follow the Jesus some create in their own image)? Do you strive to exercise His plan of agency you sustained from our very beginning? Alma 31: 12-29

    7 – Do you judge, shun, seek to punish, reject or expel others from Christ’s Kingdom on earth or bar them from ordinances for entry to His Kingdom in heaven for not measuring up to His, your or leaders’ standards? D&C 46: 4-8 & Alma 31: 12-29

    1. Woops, no correction feature. Should have read more like:

      “Better than the last justifications and the last start which backfired. It still does not prevent the very worst scenario of verbal and emotional sex abuse – This improvement still lets a zealot bishop team up with a zealot parent against the child sexually. This IS much like gang rape. A sure fire way to either drive the child from the church or to depression or suicide or dysfunctionality, for life? They missed the important point, again, which of course still also allows sexual bullying and grooming of potential missionaries and adults to continue too. Following Jesus first might solve this waffling dilemma?

      1. Within the context of the LDS Church..it still falls short. I agree with you Tom M, but it is also a very depressing scenario. Sam has shown such perseverance. Please Sam do not give up, keep going..the end result might be very surprising!

  5. Amazed at what you’ve accomplished, Sam. I thank you and the children thank you! Having been sexually bullied and shamed as an adult, I agree with Tom M. For those who seek forgiveness through the atonement, a middle man is not needed. Even as an TBM, this always baffled me…..

  6. I am in the League City Stake but I haven’t heard anything yet, though I missed Church on Sunday and didn’t hear of any letter. We have Stake Conference this coming weekend, so hopefully we hear something then!
