I was very excited about this change.

I wonder if it means we're one step closer to women getting the priesthood... (if that happens :-/) We might have to wait for Nelson and Oaks to die for that... :P It was the same sort of thing for blacks and the priesthood BTW.
Boys are governed by rules. Men are governed by principles.

Sometimes our journeys take us to unexpected places. That is a truly beautiful thing.

Nelson? Yep, probably.

Oaks? I'm not sure. He is complicated.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
