For my entire life, I was taught that obedience to counsel was of utmost importance. This teaching alone is dangerous. If the counsel reeks of guilt and shame, there is no reason it should be heeded, at all. Yet, this was the life I lived. That I was raised in. One where questions couldn’t be asked, and if they could, they couldn’t be answered. Where a young boy is made to feel guilty about touching himself. Then to have the (quite hideous) bishop wanting to probe for details. Why? As in why in the actual #@$& are we, as a church, as members, allowing this type of abuse to be purported on our children? Still.
