Social Media, Interpersonal Communications, and Differences of Opinion

“We challenge all youth to avoid bullying, insults or language and practices that deliberately inflict pain on others.  All of these violate the Savior’s command to love one another.

“The Savior taught that contention is a tool of the devil. That surely teaches against some of the current language and practices of politics.  Living with policy differences is essential to politics, but policy differences need not involve personal attacks that poison the process of government and punish participants.  All of us should banish hateful communications and practice civility for differences of opinion.”

—Elder Dallin H. Oaks, CR October 2014
