Opposition groups have begun to target the leadership of the Church. Read about the protests and see videos of the anti-traditional family protesters in front of the L.A. Temple here.

Protesters are also beginning to organize in front of the Salt Lake Temple. Read about that here.

This quote from President Benson seems applicable:

"As a prophet reveals the truth it divides the people. The honest in heart heed his words, but the unrighteous either ignore the prophet or fight him. When the prophet points out the sins of the world, the worldly either want to close the mouth of the prophet, or else act as if the prophet didn't exist, rather than repent of their sins. Popularity is never a test of truth. Many a prophet has been killed or cast out. As we come closer to the Lord's second coming, you can expect that as the people of the world become more wicked, the prophet will be less popular with them."
