Elder Holland Tempe Arizona Devotional - "Don't you dare bail"

At 2:10 - "Don’t you dare bail. I am so furious with people who leave this church. I don’t know whether ‘furious’ is a good apostolic word. But I am. What on earth kind of conviction is that? What kind of patty-cake, taffy-pull experience is that? As if none of this ever mattered, as if nothing in our contemporary life mattered, as if this is all just supposed to be “just exactly the way I want it and answer every one of my questions and pursue this and occupy that and defy this – and then maybe I’ll be a Latter-Day Saint”?! Well, there’s too much Irish in me for that."

Don't think God & Christ are tired of people,people, people!  Christ is not people tired.., he is "Fraud Apostle " tired!."  Holland will never never st with a normal member...because he is a paid Schill!!

More evidence that the church is untrue. Was a member for about six months and left with a repentive heart. I was suckered in by their kindness only to learn that their god is Joseph Smith. It all came crashing down after this discovery, not to mention the lies they speak, which was fairly often.

Well,  looks like Holland's video has been set to "private" since it first went YouTube. 

In response to Ron Karren's comment on Elder Holland's arbitrary firing of a secretary at BYU-Provo, that is very typical of university officials to protect their turf at *any* expense. BYU apparently is no different from secular or state run universities in that regard. They are a law unto themselves. 

One of my nephews played as a quarterback at BYU in Provo, on a full scholarship years ago. When he became injured severely and had to quit the football team he not only lost his full scholarship, he lost any and all support from the school including for medical coverage for his athletic injury. It was, according to the university, in his contract. He was SOL, in other words. 

He died some years ago on a construction job after becoming ill during the middle of the day. He went to lie down for a little while and didn't get back up. Flu related symptoms. Could it, might it have been related to his injury while on the BYU football team? Only heaven knows. He left a widow and five stepchildren. 

BYU has no moral compass for what it does as an institution. As a church institution that in itself should be setting off alarms. :/

ETA: Nephew was *only* 36 years old when he passed away, without warning.

Have a cousin who was a BYU QB back in the late 80's as well!.  He is still alive and well, but I do agree that BYU has no MORAL COMPASS!  Well, if you are clean shaven, wear long pants and a collared shirt and (of course) garments....You are good!! If you are a woman....pretty much the same (but don't look like a dike..that is bad).  LDS is just another man made religion that likes complete control of its minions...thats all!
