LDS Church Responds to Leaked Videos of 12 Apostles in Private Meetings

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

From an official release through Deseret News, Church spokesman Eric Hawkins has commented on the recent leak of videos showing private meetings of members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. The videos show members of the Twelve being briefed on world issues from government and educational leaders.

Hawkins said:

“Most of these videos appear to be from briefings received by senior church leaders between 2007 and 2012. In these committee meetings, presentations are routinely received from various religious, political and subject-matter experts on a variety of topics.

The purpose is to understand issues that may face the church and is in pursuit of the obligation church leaders feel to be informed on and have open discussion about current issues. This is an informational forum, not a decision-making body.”
