    Lying by omission indeed. The church has opened up somewhat when they started publishing the Joseph Smith papers and other things about ten years ago (thought I don’t think these things are talked about in the ward meetings) but there was a time when lying through omission about church history was pretty much church policy. In 1981 Elder Boyd K. Packer gave a now infamous talk to church educators called “The Mantle is far, far greater than the intellect” where he said “There is a temptation for the writer or the teacher of Church history to want to tell everything, whether it is worthy or faith promoting or not. Some things that are true are not very useful.
