The Salt Lake Tribune has recently released a news article that the church officially removed Moroni 9:9 from the English version of the Personal Progress Manual.
Moroni 9:9 "For behold, many of the daughters of the Lamanites have they taken prisoners; and after depriving them of that which was most dear and precious above all things, which is chastity and virtue — "
This change comes three years after this verse, and any other connecting rape with chastity, was decried by LDS feminists across the United States, according to MormonHub.
This Book of Mormon passage was the first LDS verse Mormon girls were required to study under the value of "virtue" in their Personal Progress workbooks, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Church spokesman, Eric Hawkins, confirmed that the verse has been eliminated "first in the English version, others will follow."
With the church latest move many Mormon Women express their joy on Social Media.
