The Mormons for Marriage site has a produced a version of Boyd K. Packer's talk which shows the changes made from the original he gave on Sunday and the official version now available on the Church's website.
As some have pointed out, one significant change is the rhetorical switch of Packer referring to the ability of overcoming "inborn tendencies" to "inborn temptations." This is significant because it moves the sinfulness of homosexuality from attraction and feelings (tendencies) to action (giving into temptation. While this is perhaps only a minor blip in light of the larger problems of homophobic thought in Mormonism, it is nevertheless indicative of the move from Packer's homophobic notion that same-sex attraction is sinful disease which can be overcome, to a recognition that this attraction is possibly inborn and most likely permanent.
More interesting to me however, is the demotion of the Proclamation of the Family in Packer's talk from a "revelation" to a "guide."
The original talk stated:
Fifteen years ago, with the world in turmoil, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles issued “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” the fifth proclamation in the history of the Church. It qualifies according to the definition as a revelation and would do well that members of the church to read and follow it.The published version now says:
Fifteen years ago, with the world in turmoil, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles issued “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” the fifth proclamation in the history of the Church. It is a guide that members of the Church would do well to read and to follow.I'm not exactly sure what to make of this. Either it means that the Church does not except the Proclamation as a revelation (which it was never originally presented as), or that Packer's notion of some sort of recognized definition of a definition of revelation is mere nonsenses (which I would argue it is). My guess is that it is a combination of the two.
