Church Updates Temple Garment Video

We’re pleased with the overwhelmingly positive response to the "Sacred Temple Clothing" video we posted last week. In recent days the video has been shared widely on social media channels and public news media and viewed over a half-million times, helping others better understand the sacred nature of this aspect of our beliefs.

One short clip used in the video came from stock footage filmed several years ago. It has just been brought to our attention that criminal charges had been brought against a Church member shown in the clip. We have therefore replaced that eight-second clip with new footage, but the script, imagery and all other aspects of the video remain unchanged. The updated video can be found here.

We are making this change and explanation to maintain the spirit of transparency that is a hallmark of this video. We hope that it will continue to be shared and viewed to create understanding about the personal and religious nature of temple clothing.
