“Although, I do not care much for a negro, still I have a warm spot in my heart for those beautiful singers.”

“There is not now, and there never has been a doctrine in this church that the negroes are under a divine curse. There is no doctrine in the church of any kind pertaining to the negro. We believe that we have a scriptural precedent for withholding the priesthood from the negro. It is a practice, not a doctrine, and the practice someday will be changed. And that’s all there is to it.” – Sterling M. McMurrin affidavit, March 6, 1979. See David O. McKay and The Rise of Modern Mormonism by Greg Prince and William Robert Wright.

There are no infant spirits born. They had a being ages before they came into this life. They appear in infant bodies, but they were tested, proven souls. Therefore, I say to you that long before we came into this life all groups and races of men existed as they exist today. Like attracts like.
