Elder Tad R. Callister in an editorial called "A Fence at the Top or an ambulance at the bottom?" asked the following question:
What is the greatest challenge facing our nation today? How would you respond? The economy, national security, immigration, gun control, poverty, racism, crime, pandemics, climate change?
What Elder Callister advocated afterwards is for more advocacy on the protection of the family. We see riots and rallies for LGBTQ rights, climate change, and so many other issues, but we don't see any advocacy for protecting the family unit. A major reason for this, he states, is that Satan is doing everything in his power to make sure that God's children on Earth forget about this fundamental principle to Heavenly Father's plan of happiness.
[Satan's] plan is in direct opposition to the family proclamation. It is an insidious attempt to destroy the nuclear family and God’s moral values. He disguises his plan of attack with alluring labels such as “pro-choice” for abortion, “love and compassion” for endorsement of same-sex marriage, and “environmental emergency” for promotion of a zero-growth population agenda. Each of these proposals, however, constitutes a frontal attack on the family unit and its survival.
This article has received both positive and negative attention online due to Elder Callister stating that the protection of the family unit is more important than other talking points like climate change and more. But Heavenly Father has a plan. He has laid out the steps that we need to follow in order to return to him. So what is more important? These other issues? Or the family?
