“…brothers and sisters, there is another matter of which I’d like to mention before we close this glorious conference. We live in a new age. A time where information surrounds us. The internet has grown to be a regular part of many people’s lives. Email makes it easier to communicate… but I’m not going to give you my email address (crowd erupts with laughter). Like all other forms of media the internet can be used for both good and evil. Pornography is the great plague of our times, it enslaves those caught in it’s web of deceit and pain.
“But this free flow of information has also provided opportunities for us to learn and grow. The Church has many websites devoted to helping us grow our testimonies of Jesus Christ and becoming better people. You may also know that the Church publications are available online for the growing internet populous. You can find these through lds.org and mormon.org. In addition to these resources there is Mormon blogging community, the Bloggernacle, who, in realtime, discusses gospel topics, similar to your Gospel Doctrine classes. They can be found at ldsblogs.org. Brothers and sisters, we must utilize these resources for good, we must build these communities in order to combat the overwhelming influence of evil in this world today.”
Yeah, yeah, I know, this would never happen, President Hinckley would probably just direct everyone to Nine Moons, but let’s put that aside and assume he refers the entire Church membership to our little community.
What would happen Immediately? After three months? After a year? After five years?
