Media responds to Pres. Packer's General Conference talk

President Boyd K. Packer gave a talk entitled "Cleansing the Inner Temple" during General Conference this weekend. In it, he addressed the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, alluding the Church's stance against gay marriage.

The talk has been met with a lot of anger from nonmember communities, who oppose the Church's view on the hot topic. Below are links to President Packer's talk and several articles written in response to what he said.
