Why is that kid crying? It makes me feel seriously concerned. Is he feeling publicly shamed? Is he just nervous? Was his question a personal question? I wouldn't feel comfortable being hugged by a stranger like that...

Was this the best way to answer the kid's question? I feel like what I see is guilt...what is happening here!?!?!!

It's totally guilt-manipulation.  That poor kid probably really wanted helpful tips on how to get back into the habit of reading chloroform-in-print, but instead of a real answer, he basically got a guilt trip of "you better keep reading or else look where you'll end up... in Devil's territory, completely out of control of your life and better off dead..."  Utter bullshit.

Wow. Way to publicly shame the kid and not even answer his question. Poor kid.

All I can do is shake my head and say, "Wow!"

This is such a sad reminder of the way I always felt in Mormonism.  It is abhorrent to me that a young child is being abused in this manner and the audience is politely laughing at Bednar's attempts to be amusing.  If it was any other cult, there would be a public outcry.  Absolutely sickening.

That is sick and not normal.  I wonder if this dude had an erection afterwards?

This video is hard on the heart. Poor kid just learned to not ask questions.
