I think that's totally what it was - jealousy. President Ucthdorf - while in reality as much of a scoundrel as any of them - has 100 times the charisma of the rest of them combined. . . . He's the only one who really earns all the admiration he receives - the rest of them get it only by virtue of the position they hold,. . .

The Brethren are perfectly aware that President Ucthdorf is more admired than they are, that he is a better speaker, that he makes elderly (and many not so elderly) ladies swoon. Hell, the Brethren can't even all walk though the same door without doing it in their damned pecking order, you can't tell me there isn't a considerable amount of small-minded jealousy in an organization that is that petty. Of course it was jealousy.
Absolutely! Jealousy has to be a real thing among men who not only arrive and leave in descending order, but take chocolates out of a box in descending order.

They must have learned make entrances and exits like that that from this story:
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
