DNews: Elder Oaks urges BYU students to support religious, academic freedom and vote despite 'ugly' election

Elder Oaks: "We should also remember not to be part of the current meanness. Today, I say that if the church or its doctrines are attacked in blogs and other social media, contentious responses are not helpful. They disappoint our friends and provoke our adversaries. When our positions do not prevail, we should accept unfavorable results graciously and practice civility with our adversaries."

Which of the two major party candidates have avoided both meanness and civility? Neither.

Perhaps members of the church can break the false narrative, change the paradigm, and vote for Evan MuMullin (there is a feasible scenario he gets elected, though it is obviously quite unlikely).
