Elder Oaks Makes Waves

Elder Dallin H. Oaks
 
Elder Dallin H. Oaks distinguished himself at General Conference again by giving a powerful address that is already causing digital ripples throughout cyberspace.
 
He addressed same-sex marriage and reiterated the Church's position on this controversial issue. In the past, Elder Boyd K. Packer had been the one to state the Church's views and take the digital heat. No more.
With his characteristic thoroughness, logic, reasoning, legal training and eloquence, Elder Oaks' leaves no doubt what the Church's position is and what it will remain.

You can review his profile. I will, of course, be adding his latest address, and relevant quotes, to it as soon as they become available. In the meantime, you can access the video archive of his talk.
