but TJ, surely you understand that the JoD isn't considered authoritative.

Only the leadership can decide what of the JoD is doctrinal and worth referencing. All weird things said, such as that marriage is a civil contract, reflect his obviously uninspired opinion.

And besides, we listen to our *current* prophet now.

/head spin

my chest gets tight just thinking of all this BS.
