Off With Their Heads!

The Church has issued a new official statement on immigration. I've already covered this issue in detail. What interests me is the related resource it is linked to. The statement is entitled, "Responsibility of Church Members: Avoiding Being Judgmental." Here it is in its entirety:
The First Presidency has for many years taught that undocumented status should not by itself prevent an otherwise worthy Church member from entering the temple or being ordained to the priesthood.
Bishops are in the best position to make appropriate judgments as to Church privileges. Meanwhile, Church members should avoid making judgments about fellow members in their congregations.
Just like the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, people quickly pronounce a draconian sanction on all undocumented people, even when their own lives won't compare well under scrutiny.


Speeding, copyright violations, white lies -- "Off With Their Heads!"
