I remember one Bishop being very explicit when discussing the law of chastity with me and even sharing details of his and his wife's sex life that I didn't need to hear as a young teenager in a worthiness interview. My husband and I have a rule that one of us is always present when our kids are being interviewed. Most Bishops are great guys, but I'm just not comfortable taking chances with my kids.
Maybe a remedy would be to have the RS president set in as a non-participate individual.
I am a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I have also served as a Branch President and Counselor in a Stake Presidency. I am thankful to be a member of a Church that cares enough about it's youth to conduct interviews with them to help them along in their walk with Christ. I grew up in a Church that did not do this. Yes, we signed pledge cards promising not to engage in certain behavior, but there was no one to help us understand the importance on keeping our promises. My wife had the same experience in the church she grew up in. Both churches were wonderful influences but was nothing compared to the real concerns shown to youth as the LDS Church. I hope our leadership does not bend to the secular world's ideas which are not conducive to Christian behavior. I hope they will remain steadfast and immovable in protecting this Church from the voices screaming at them from the Great and Spacious Building.
