As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it should be obvious that the church does not support movies that are rated R and anything that is offensive in nature. President Benson in the October conference of 1986 said, “Don’t see R-rated movies or vulgar videos or participate in any entertainment that is immoral, suggestive, or pornographic.” Church members, however, are free to choose for themselves. But if they think it’s okay to disobey the prophets by participating in such acts than they are simply lying to themselves. The name calling directed toward Chris Seifert by Neil Blair in his response to the formers article was amusing, especially to all those who know Chris.
Perhaps the reason for this is because he knew Chris was right and therefore could only resort to attacking his character. By judging Chris you yourself are judging. I, for one, completely disagree with this letter and wish that BYU would offer up more ideal students like Chris who are willing to stand up for what they know is right.
