Excerpts of Mormon Church makes changes to Packer's sermon regarding homosexuality, ABC 4 News
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has changed the text of Boyd K. Packer's sermon on morality, homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
Packer's sermon claimed that homosexuality was not born of inbred "tendencies."
In the Church's online text version of Packer's talk, the word "tendencies" was changed to "temptations."
During his original talk, Elder Packer spoke of homosexual tendencies saying, "Some suppose that they were pre- set and cannot overcome what they feel are inborn tendencies toward the impure and unnatural. Not so. Why would our Heavenly Father do that to anyone? Remember, he is our Father."
Another change to Packer's talk includes the omission of the entire sentence, "Why would our Heavenly Father do that to anyone?"
As president and the senior member of the Quorum of the Twelve, Packer is next in succession to become president of the church.
