This was the most discussed/criticized/agonized over/talked about talk on the Bloggernacle. A million different interpretations have been proposed.

A quick update.

The church as posted the text of the conference talks online and it has been noticed that Pres. Packers talk has been edited.

This blog has a transcription of what was said and then a excerpt from the text released lds.org.
