A recent news story tells of a YW leader who was released from her calling for breastfeeding her baby in a room full of young women. She has also been threatened with the loss of her temple recommend if she doesn’t leave meetings to feed her baby. Scott Trotter, LDS media spokesperson, was caught off guard when asked for comment and replied, “WTF??” Just kidding.
What he really said:
“Countless thousands of mothers have been accommodated in church for generations, simply by everyone observing common sense, discretion and respect. We have received no information about this incident.”
In typical PR fashion, this response allows everyone involved to think he or she is the one behaving with common sense, discretion and respect while the other party is behaving absent those qualities. It is a media classic!
