While much recent attention has focused on the fresh attitudes and media savvy of Pope Francis, now in his eighth month as bishop of Rome, another major denomination, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is also seeing its top leaders express a refreshing level of candor.
"I suppose the church would only be perfect if it were run by perfect beings. God is perfect, and his doctrine is pure. But he works through us — his imperfect children — and imperfect people make mistakes," he said.
Then came an admission: "We openly acknowledge that in nearly 200 years of [Mormon] history — along with an uninterrupted line of inspired, honorable and divine events — there have been some things said and done that could cause people to question," Mr. Uchtdorf said. "There may have been things said or done that were not in harmony with our values, principles or doctrine."
