My spouse came home from the temple and indicated that a new Apostle John had been digitally inserted into the endowment movie. I did a forum search about this and couldn't find an existing thread about it. Does anyone know anything about this?

I heard that a bunch of months ago.

I can only vaguely remember the rumors about why the change was made.

Is he cute?

Would we recognize him from any TV series characters?

OK, this is the strangest thing I've ever heard. What in the world would be the motivation for such a silly thing?!

Were they looking for cultural diversity? Did they insert a darker skinned guy in there? Did the actor of the original John commit some crime in Las Vegas?

She DID indicate that he looked Hispanic.

I bet the original John no longer holds a temple recommend.

So even the celluloid/digital replays have to all include current TRs at the time of the replay?

There appears to be no explanation for this action. Which, of course, is not surprising. When was the last time the Brethren explained any actions?

I've heard that Fred (can't remember his last name), who played John and was on "Center Street" on BYUTV, came out as gay. But I can't confirm that.

Even if that is true (and I can't confirm because I know nothing about Fred), being gay isn't an offense, in and of itself. Or has that changed? ThaT just being gay gets a person erased now?

A new John?

Next they will be saying it is because Eve is a hooker?

Well, I guess it's public now.

I was in Fred's ward years ago, and he's one of the nicest, most sincere Church members I have ever met. It really tore me up when he "came out" to his friends and shared how much he had struggled with his homosexuality. In the Temple movie, it looks like they only altered the scenes where he was easily identifiable, so it's still him in the long-shots.

He had some interesting stories about filming the Temple movie. Apparently they went way out onto the Church's property in Wyoming, but the anti-Mormons in a helicopter were still able to find them and try to disrupt (or see) what was going on.

Fred was also the "We've gotta go back" elder in the Church's "Labor of Love" video. I wonder if they'll edit that too...?

(Go to 9:11 in this video. For some reason it was much easier to find in Spanish)
