Why LDS Church President Russell Nelson delivered his talk while seatedPresident Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints explains why he delivered his General Conference talk while sitting on a stool. It’s unbelievable the shape he is in for his age.

He's still not addressing how long Strengthening Church Members Committee (SCMC) has been working with Qanon outlets and practicing KiwiFarms-like impersonations. Of course, no one wants to talk about the Church's LGBTQIA trauma for profit and fun.

Nelson, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said any kind of abuse of women, children or anyone is an abomination to the Lord. I’d also like to believe that any persons/organizations that allow for the abuse to go on without accountability are complicit and will also face the same wrath they claim abusers will face. It must have been a very nice concert They will face the wrath of God... in the meantime we will protect the abusers at the expense of the victim. His words mean nothing.
