Without digging into my scriptures for the exact quotes, consider the
actions of the sons of Mosiah going to serve and live among the Lamanites in
a spirit of love and sacrifice.  Talk about cognitive dissidence.  Do you
think their friends, both the ones they had when they were apostate and the
ones they gained when they repented, understood them? Everyone was used to
fixing the Lamanite problem with war and these boys had a better idea.  I
think the current Church leadership has a better idea too.
