The thread on women praying in General Conference got me thinking. Mormons really will latch onto anything and everything that can be interpreted as revelation, though these "revelations" may have been was induced by social/political/financial pressures or some other reason. The members are far more interested in building up the support buttresses under their shelf, than thinking critically about where these changes come from. So simple policy changes suddenly become the Word of the Lord, despite the lack of "Thus saith the Lord."
The 1978 policy change allowing women to pray in Sacrament Meeting (God loves women!)
The switch to a 3-hour block meeting schedule (God is a genius!)
The counsel to wear only one earring (God thinks modest is hottest!)
The semiannual announcement of new temples (Now the temple that we'll rarely attend is even closer! God has heard our prayers! - Seriously, listen to the announcement next conference and listen for the audible gasps from the congregation. You can actually hear the testimonies growing.)
Lowering the missionary age to 18 (God knew I couldn't last until 19!)
Building a conference center (Now more people can hear God's word in person as opposed to on TV like everyone else!)
Building a shopping mall (God's showing the world how well the church is doing! If we can build a mall, imagine what good we're doing with the rest of our money!)
The subtle changes to the scriptures (God finally clarified that JS wasn't REALLY translating the papyri!)
To what other mighty revelation have you been witness as a member of the church?
