The General Conference spent most of the morning fiddling with Memorial 78—"Special Directions" which collected numerous amendments as it went... for voting up or down. Words like “Recommended” "Strongly recommended," "encourages" "profanity" or obscene," “may or may not be” “Violence,” “Excessive violence” or “gratuitous violence” or exactly what it means to observe the Lord’s Day…
My summary is the original memorial loosened up a tad past statements (like eliminating the anti-social dancing statement) and virtually all attempts to tighten up things again failed.
The final memorial passed with a 85% vote.
9But since it was not made effective immediately with a 2/3 vote there will be no dances tonight--or until the Discipline is printed which makes these provisions become effective. ;-)
