The power of the Proclamation on the Family is its doctrine. The Proclamation does not have powerful language. Its mostly written in passive-voice sentences and ‘be’ verbs.
This month’s new Primary song sets phrases from the Proclamation to (bad) music, including “the family is ordained of God.” I tried rewording. I discovered that at least this phrase is right. “God ordains the family” sounds too much like a mass priesthood conferral.
It is attempted to steady the ark and it is failed.
What are your thoughts on the language and syntax of the Proclamation? No beating dead horses, please.
