Did They Really Say That?!?

Brigham Young did not originate the doctrine that Negroes could not hold the Priesthood in this life but some day some of them may be granted that privilege, but he was taught it by the Prophet Joseph.  The minutes of a meeting of the general authorities of the Church which was held on August 22, 1895 read as follows: “President George Q. Cannon remarked that the Prophet taught this doctrine: That the seed of Cain could not receive the Priesthood nor act in  any of the offices of he Priesthood until the seed of Abel should come forward and take precedence over Cain’s offspring.”
