“The Church is either true or it isn’t. [Regarding blacks/priesthood] If it changes its stand on the strength of the ‘great stream of modern religious and social thought,’ it will be proven untrue…

Paul C. Richards, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought (Salt Lake City, UT: Publishers Press, Autumn 1967), 6.
