I listened to a fascinating podcast the other day that delved into how that revelation was actually received. The podcast is an interview with Edward Kimball, the son of President Spencer W. Kimball. It is the most straightforward and honest discussion of the receiving of the revelation extending priesthood rights to Blacks that I have ever seen given from a faithful LDS perspective. I thought that the MoHo community would be interested in hearing the details of how this revelation was received so that they can gauge what must happen in the future before the church will receive a revelation extending fellowship and acceptance to those in a gay marriage. I think it is safe to say that we will not hear about the reception of such a revelation during General Conference today and tomorrow.
The interview can be found at the Mormon Stories Podcast website: http://mormonstories.org/?p=940.
