Counselor Gordon B. Hinckley withdraws church's financial support from Salt Lake City's Pioneer Memorial Theater (PMT) because of "increasing profanity and vulgarity in its productions." Subsequent explanations in DESERET NEWS cite profanity in production of "Conversations with my Father" several months ago. Timing of Hinckley's announcement is unfortunate-day after PMT's premier of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," which presents its "star-crossed lovers" as black-white interracial couple.
