Oaks, “Reading Church History,” Ninth Annual Church Educational System Religious Educators’ Symposium, August 16, 1985, Brigham Young University, I placed the underlining."Some things that are true are not edifying or appropriate to communicate. Readers of history and biography should ponder that moral reality as part of their effort to understand the significance of what they read.”
Wow, this coming from our resident state supreme court justice who champions truth in all other facets. Here is another quote:
"This philosophy of moral relativism denies what millions of believing Christians, Jews, and Muslims consider fundamental, and this denial creates serious problems for all of us"
---Oaks, Balancing Truth and Tolerance. lds.org
True that Dallin, true that and you are now dealing with your serious problems in the form of me leaving the church and thinking that you are an utter douchebag.
The other funny thing is that the latter quote is easily found, the former is one you have to really dig for and is found on a non-lds website.

We are all familiar with quotes from different authorities that dont match up with what they teach publicly (I'm looking at you Boyd), what is your favorite one? This one from Oaks might be my favorite.
