Here are some examples of the behavior or teaching of David Bednar that some former mormons find objectionable:

  1. There are no homosexual members of the church
  2. Why do I have to be 12 to enter the temple?
  3. Refuses to answer question about women having the priesthood
  4. Ignores many scripture verses to make his point
  5. Publicly chastises two YSA women for standing while singing
  6. Make people resing the opening him because not forceful enough
  7. Do not date a girl with more than one earring
  8. Revoked an apostolic blessing because of socializing in chapel
  9. Expects wife to stand after him in deference to his apostolic authority
  10. Moral agency means you are free to obey the commandments
  11. Abruptness at hotel room
