BYU professor, fireside speaker, and member of the Young Men's General Presidency, Brad Wilcox, has had a pretty troubling week. Leaked fireside remarks showed Brother Wilcox using insensitive language to discuss race and the priesthood and women and the priesthood, making disparaging remarks about other religions, and employing fear tactics to keep youth from leaving the Church. Overall, it was pretty bad, and social media erupted in condemnation. Brad Wilcox apologized twice for his remarks, but is he apologizing for the right things? Can the Church truly move forward on racial issues while refusing to reckon with its past? How can we move past a privileged white male's perspective as the default one in Church culture? How do we acknowledge difficult doctrinal issues without being patronizing to those more adversely affected by them? There's lots to unpack here. Of course, there's still other news, and you can grab links to the stories below!
