Someone posted this video to Facebook and I find it incredibly creepy. It’s a 1978 Barbara Walters interview with Donny and Marie Osmond and she asks them about the Mormon church’s views on the subordination of black people and women. Their answers are disturbing on pretty much every level.
I find it creepy because it’s so obvious that they have simply shut off their brains. The church teaches it and that settles it, no matter how bigoted it is. Black people and women aren’t allowed to hold positions of authority in the church because that’s just the way God wants it, so who are we to question it? That idea just makes me shudder.
