37,037. Gordon B Hinckley was involved in heterosexual and homosexual love affairs. The God Makers II, director Bill Claudin, The Hinckley Investigation
37,038. I was personally involved with apostle Gordon B Hinckley sexually. Charles, claims former lover of Gordon B Hinckley and reportedly suffering from AIDS, cited The God Makers II
38,265. President Hinckley, the prophet, and several Apostles of the church have all prophesied concerning Nigeria that with the opening of Aba temple, our nation will be blessed and will witness prosperity and stability. Cornelius Tay
38,248. The real villain was President Gordon B Hinckley ... No repentance. No apologies. No admission of wrongdoing ... Hinckley had fallen for Mark Hofmann’s blackmail, bought up damaging documents and hidden them away in his private vault, and in so doing, indirectly contributed to the deaths of two innocent people.
And then lied about it ... Hinckley had lied outright by saying he had met with Mark Hofmann only casually and with Steve Christensen (first bomb victim) only once; he had lied indirectly by allowing Church spokesmen to deny that the Church owned documents he had bought. Mootman, board post 28th December 2008 ‘Gordon B Hinckley Was a Cowardly Liar, reference to County Attorney David Biggs’
36,774. I don’t know how the missionaries find some of the people they find. The FBI can’t find them, the police can’t find them, but our missionaries find them [laughter]. Why is that? (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley & Missionary) Gordon B Hinckley, fifteenth Morg president
36,815. Each of us has to face the matter – either the Church is true, or it is a fraud. There is no middle ground. It is the Church and kingdom of God, or it is nothing. Gordon B Hinckley, April Conference 2003
38,272. Q) And this belief in contemporary revelation and prophecy – as the prophet, tell us how that works. How do you receive divine revelation? What does it feel like?
A) Let me say first that we have a great body of revelation, the vast majority of which came from the prophet Joseph Smith. We don’t need much revelation. We need to pay more attention to the revelation we’ve already received. (Mormon & Prophet) Gordon B Hinckley, San Francisco Chronicle 1997
36,883. We cannot be arrogant. We cannot be self-righteous. The very situation in which the Lord has placed us requires that we be humble as the beneficiaries of His direction. While we cannot agree with others on certain matters, we must never be disagreeable. We must always be friendly, soft-spoken, neighborly, and understanding. Gordon B Hinckley, general conference address fall 2003
36,886. As I have said before, we must not be clannish. We must never adopt a holier-than-thou attitude. We must not be self-righteous. We must be magnanimous, and open, and friendly. We can keep our faith. We can practice our religion. We can cherish our method or worship without being offensive to others. I take this occasion to plead for a spirit of tolerance and neighborliness, of friendship and love toward those of other faiths. Gordon B Hinckley, July 2001
37,871. This is a season for giving and a time for gratitude. We remember with appreciation the birth of the Prophet Joseph Smith, which is celebrated this same month of December, two days before Christmas. Gordon B Hinckley, Ensign December 1997 ‘A Season for Gratitude’
37,850. We live in a season of war. We live in a season of arrogance. We live in a season of wickedness, pornography, immorality. All of the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah haunt our society. Our young people have never faced a greater challenge. We have never seen more clearly the lecherous face of evil.
If they want to get involved in pornography, they can do so very easily ... They can sit at a computer and revel in cyberspace filth.
I fear this may be going on in some of your homes. It is vicious. It is lewd and filthy. It is enticing and habit-forming. It will take a young man or woman down to destruction as surely as anything in this world. It is foul sleaze. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, general conference address October 2001 ‘Living in the Fulness of Times’
38,142. I am so grateful that we live in an era of comparative peace. There are no great wars raging across the world. There is trouble here and there but not a great worldwide conflict. We are able to carry the gospel to so many nations of the earth and bless the lives of the people wherever it goes. Gordon B Hinckley, General Conference April 2001 (five months before 9/11)
38,143. I desire no gifts, but rather I wish to give something to this community in which I have spent most of my life. To this end I am hosting a party. Gordon B Hinckley
38,335. Please, brethren, do not discuss outside of the temple that which occurs in the temple ... But when you leave the doors of the House of the Lord, be true to a sacred trust to speak not of that which is holy and sanctified. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, article Ensign May 1990 ‘Keeping the Temple Holy’
38,336. We’ve brought Zion to Babylon ... the greatest day ever for the city of New York . . . I can’t think of anywhere that needs a place of peace and of refuge and of repentance more than New York City. This temple is a blessing. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, New York June 2004
38,144. Well, we have nothing to hide. Our history is an open book. They may find what they are looking for, but the fact is the history of the church is clear and open and leads to faith and strength and virtues. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley
38,145. We are not changing. The world’s perception of us is changing. We teach the same doctrine. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, November 2001 Ensign p5
36,882. People think in a very critical way before they come into this Church. When they come into this Church they’re expected to conform. And they find happiness in that conformity. (Mormons & Cults: COJCOLDS) Gordon B Hinckley interview David Ransom, Australian Broadcasting Company
38,138. Mormons have become widely respected for their values, and the way they live their lives. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, interview Larry King
38,242. The church does not become involved in politics. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) ibid.
38,139. I knew a so-called intellectual who said the Church was trapped by its history. My response was that without that history we have nothing. (Mormons & Cults: COJCOLDS) Gordon B Hinckley, article Ensign November 2002 ‘The Marvelous Foundation of Our Faith’
37,938. I submit that it is an uncomely thing, and yet a common thing, to see young men with ears pierced for earrings, not for one pair only, but for several. They have no respect for their appearance. Do they think it clever or attractive to so adorn themselves?
I submit it is not adornment. It is making ugly that which was attractive. Not only are ears pierced, but other parts of the body as well, even the tongue. It is absurd.
We – the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve – have taken the position, and I quote, that ‘the Church discourages tattoos. It also discourages the piercing of the body for other than medical purposes, although it takes no position on the minimal piercing of the ears by women for one pair of earrings’. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, article Ensign Fall 2000 ‘Your Greatest Challenge Mother’
37,939. Likewise the piercing of the body for multiple rings in the ears, in the nose, even in the tongue. Can they possibly think that is beautiful? It is a passing fancy, but its effects can be permanent. Some have gone to such extremes that the ring had to be removed by surgery. The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve have declared that we discourage tattoos and also ‘the piercing of the body for other than medical purposes’. We do not, however, take any position ‘on the minimal piercing of the ears by women for one pair of earrings’ – one pair only. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, article Ensign Fall 2000 ‘Great Shall Be the Peace of Thy Children’
38,140. The traditional Christ of whom they speak is not the Christ of whom I speak. For the Christ of whom I speak has been revealed in this the Dispensation of the Fulness [sic] of Times. Gordon B Hinckley, LDS Church News 20th June 1998
37,940. May I mention earrings and rings placed in other parts of the body. These are not manly. They are not attractive. You young men look better without them, and I believe you will feel better without them. As for the young women, you do not need to drape rings up and down your ears. One modest pair of earrings is sufficient. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley
37,941. The First Presidency and the Twelve, after most prayerful and careful consideration, have reached the decision that the present program of missionary farewells should be modified.
The departing missionary will be given opportunity to speak in a sacrament meeting for 15 or 20 minutes. But parents and siblings will not be invited to do so ... There will not be special music or anything of that kind ...
We know this will be a great disappointment to many families ...
However, we ask that there be no public reception to which large numbers are invited. (Mormons & Mormons: Hinckley) Gordon B Hinckley, general conference priesthood session October 2002
