    About Elder Quentin Cook’s conference address on Easter Sunday, I am saddened by his use of the words “non-consensual immorality”, a term which speaks to the victim. Since the victim is the non-consensual party, the term indicates the victim is also the immoral party.

    This is not in line with stated LDS Church policy that a victim of sexual abuse is not guilty of immorality.

    If we as a church are unwilling to call sexual abuse by that name, particularly in our General Conference, it will be difficult to meaningfully address the problem.

    As a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I am distressed.

    “the term indicates the victim is also the immoral party.”

    No it does not! If it’s non-consensual it means the victim is not party to it because they did not agree to go along with it. It was forced on them.

      Exactly. I was speaking to the incorrectness of the term and what the term implies. Sorry if that was unclear. There is no such thing as non-consensual immorality. Please re-read my comment, and thank you for pointing out that I might have been unclear to some. I am outraged by the term, that is what I was trying to say. Thanks for taking the time to respond Joel!
