Apostle Spencer W. Kimball delivers a speech to a conference of the LDS church's seminary and Institute teachers assembled at Brigham Young University. His topic is homosexuality and he states, "we know such a disease is curable," and "We are told that as far back as Henry the VIII, this vice was referred to as `THE ABOMINABLE AND DETESTABLE CRIME AGAINST NATURE,' and some of our own statues [sic] have followed that wording."
