[Stephen L. Richards]
President Richards mentioned that Rabbi Fink had talked to the students at the B.Y.U. on racial discrimination, and said we don't always get the right stand on this so-called broadmindedness and tolerance, which sometimes is inconsistent with the real doctrines of the Gospel. Said he didn't know that Rabbi Fink did any harm just talking to the general proposition of racial discrimination, but the more we give recognition to these so-called liberals, the more we hazard to a small degree at least the true concepts of our youth with reference to the intolerance of the Lord's word, as it always has been and always will be intolerant of other than the true interpretation.
