I still remember a meeting where the speaker said “I was never part of your organization and knew nothing about it until I was called to be in charge of it, now I appreciate how important it is” followed up by a couple tone deaf comments about the organization. She quite successfully got the point across that (a) serving in the organization was insignificant insofar as any leadership position in it mattered and (b) understanding the organization was not necessary either.
The only worse thing that happened was when one of the women complained about it, an elders quorum president said “You can ignore her, she is a woman and doesn’t have the priesthood and so doesn’t have any authority at all.”
What is the worst thing you’ve ever heard anyone say?
