I have no info on what a normal time frame is for selection. If Monson is truly incapacitated , does that play into selection or do they go ahead without his input? Could they possibly be waiting for Monson to pass so Nelson (I believe is next in line for prophet) could choose?

You realize that it takes awhile for the name to appear while holding a rock in a hat.

Durn! I totally forgot about that messy goop. I mean I thought with all the new technology there might be a faster connection, but nothing ever changes in the church. Not temple ordinances, nor scripture, nor history. All perfect ,so no need for change. Yep. That's the answer... still waiting for the name to appear on the rock. Thanks!

Okay, here's the nitty gritty.

Whomever they consider must be thoroughly investigated, vetted and evaluated. They don't want to pick a loose cannon that's going to defect and start spouting off on RFM or mormonleaks. Moreover, they will want somebody that is full of vitriol, anger and hate. The more homophobic and misogynistic; the better the candidate (in their eyes). All of this will take time and then there will be a senior apostle vote in February or March in one of their lofty board rooms.

Don't they wait until the next General Conference to name new General Authorities? I think it will sit vacant until April.

Given the ages of most of the GAs maybe they’re waiting to do a two-fer.
