Surely they haven't run out of talent (cough)!

So, I guess, this either caught them by surprise.

Commonly wait 'a respectful period',/ Don't have someone Waiting in the wings, or


?

They called and asked me, but I turned 'em down cold.
So they had to start the search all over again.

<grin>

Knowing nothing else about you, then, I can safely assume that you are white, wealthy, a businessman or attorney, and related by blood, marriage, long-time intimate friendship, or business to one of the Big Fifteen. The Big Fifteen accept no substitutes.

Sadly, you would be correct on all counts.

My big disqualification is not believing mormon BS :)

Doesn't an appointment come from the "prophet"? I think the quandary is because Monson is not competent. They may have to wait until he is deceased.

They're waiting for general conference in April.

I also speculate that the only reason there are twelve apostles now is because of scriptural precedent, and that they'd love to have fewer. Fewer voices in the meeting means fewer fights and less time spent convincing others.

Waiting gives the existing apostles a little respite before the quorum's internecine conflicts worsen as they jockey to influence the new guy.

Why don't they just make one out of the parts of deceased apostles? That way there is a strict unbroken chain of authority.

Give them time. The CEO from Ty-D-Bol is taking the lessons from the missionaries. He will be fast-tracked into the Q15. This will save the church a bundle of $$$. His new catch phrase will be "And with a giant flush, I say these things are true. Amen."

Does the least senior FP member Slide back into the 12 upon a death of one of the 12?

No, if the it's not the president who has died, the FP remains the same. It's only upon the death of the prez., does the FP dissolve and everyone goes back to their place in line, based on ordination.

They are scrounging the bottom of the barrel. Sorry the badass is taken, one of the future lead soldiers to the resistance. Second in command to be exact. Less pressure to be second in command, like a doc holiday type of position haha

perhaps mrs. Hales is claiming that her hubby (no disrespect) Ordained her (or one of their children) to be his successor/replacement...

Hey, it's happened before, ya know.

They had a guy lined up but he drinks Coke instead of Pepsi so he was nixed.

When I was LDS, vacancies are not filled until the next GC.

Not sure if that policy remains.

I don’t think they announce that until the next Conference.

They've had several meetings in the secret temple room upstairs and when Tommy get ready to announce the next Apostle either Eyring or Holland will kink Tom's oxygen tube and he passes out. They think it's funny and blame it on the Holey Ghost.

They are probably looking for a minority--tired of the criticism for not being integrated.
