President Nelson has encouraged all members of the Church to, “find and hug a Canaanite,” in celebration of black history month. Some members say that this is nearly impossible if you live in Utah. Nor do the black people living in Utah want to hug that many Mormons in one month.
Regardless of these setbacks, President Nelson has taught, “We love all of God’s children on this earth, even the descendants of Ham. Let this month be a time to celebrate our brothers and sisters who hail from Africa,” the prophet continued, “after all, we did give them the Priesthood; and they love it!”
President Nelson has encouraged everyone in the church to use the hashtag #DarkAndDelightsome to flood the internet with light… or uh, darkness.
