2020.03.05 - SHIFTING SAND- Reversals, then Re-Reversals

APRIL FOOLS came early for all the BYU students and faculty. yesterdat... (even though it is only March)

Apparently BYU really didn't mean to strip out of its Honor Code a prohibition on “all forms of physical intimacy that give expression to homosexual feelings.” That is was now OK to hold hands or hug or kiss another person of the same sex, just like their heterosexual classmates were allowed to do. And Honor Code officials told them it was OK. Even a  BYU Professor told hundreds of students that this change to the Honor Code was a blessing. This change of policy made National News and was reported even in the New York Post.

Boy, do we all feel dumb for thinking that this was true. Talk about Fake News.

A new letter came out yesterday reversing the reversal. Students turned out to protest the move by the hundreds, gathering in the Wilkinson Center.

This feels alot like shifting sand. In my opinion it would have been best to stay on the original foundation and not try and make changes.

I am sure this is difficult for the Church to navigate in these uncharted waters. I can only imagine that they would like to wipe the slate clean and start over.. 

... Kind of like what it looks like they are doing down on Temple Square. A Clean Slate around the Temple.

Here is a new Public Map of Temple Square:
