Silence is Golden

Dad taught seminary today.

He did a quiz show; ask and answer.

One of his questions:
Who was the first person to be "bleeped" on the radio, it has LDS roots.

The answer is J. Golden Kimball, he was a general authority. He was known for swearing. A story about him: he was being interviewed and he was asked if he was worried about going to hell because he swore so much. He answered: "No, because I repent so damn fast!"

Dad told that story in seminary and it apparently silenced the class room!

That is one of my favorite quotes ever. I didn't know he was the first person to get bleeped from the radio, that's pretty funny.

I think I remember Christopher talking about this quote like 5 years ago...I thought it was really funny also
