According to the Hinkster, the Hosannah Shout is a sacred salute to the Father and the Son.
I dub to rename it the Stupid Silly Salute.
Maybe it really means the members are surrendering to the leaders....once again.
(Why wave a handkerchief? From goggle I found that there is a historical salute with such an item called the "Chautauqua Salute." which consists of waving a handkerchief in the air.)
When the MormonCult elite was looking for something or other to make the dedicatory special, I guess it was just to untheatrical and unspecial, to merely wave hands in the air, which were, you know, awfully handy.
The Doofuses rise to the occasion.....or not.

LOL! There's one guy who isn't going to get into God's tree fort (CK) because he didn't follow every direction.

Do you see that old man at the podium. The one holding the white handkerchief? He's God's prophet on earth. No really, he's it. This is what God wanted for humanity. People waving handkerchiefs and chanting.
Every person in that building needs serious professional help.
I remember watching this live in my living room with my family growing up. I was 15 I think...we lived far from the Morridor and conference was on cable. We knew Hinckley would be doing this so we had our white hankies ready and did it along with him at home. Memories !! Haha
I went to one of those years ago. They made a huge deal out of having the yw make hankies for all the boys. These special hankies were then framed in a later project. My son thought it was about the dumbest thing he'd ever been a part of. He wasn't about to hang that thing on his bedroom wall. How would you explain that to your friends? He chucked it in the trash.
I felt embarrassed to be there. I knew there were a bunch of non members there. I can only imagine what they thought. Totally embarrassing. They yakked on and on about a temple being built in Ohio after they'd been persecuted and ran out of town. Non members had no clue what they were talking about. The whole thing was humiliating if you ask me. I'm glad I went though. It was a big old brick on my shelf.
I spent some years of high school at a large city Methodist Church, very mainline.
Then visited a small town/rural Methodist Church on the day of a visiting speaker, who turned out to be a hanky-waving fanatic. He had 200+ people waving white tissues. Hallelujah! Not to this onlooker.
Whoa, I would've sworn I was definitely NOT in any Methodist Church, compared to my previous experiences.
I could've shrunk into the floor.....ridiculous run amok.
Oh hilarious. Did you see Tommy and whatever geezer was standing next to him try to wave their snot rags back and forth. It's like a 3-year-old trying to remember their dance routine and keep with everybody else. They were up and down, not side to side and out of sinc on their timing. The hinkster still had that ol shout perfect, though.
