Yes, it is very disturbing!
Yes, the Mormons have always taught this.
This is what my little children were taught in Primary, along with "burning in the Second Coming." It caused them anxiety and nightmares. Luckily, they talked to me about it, and I was able to reassure them.
Why wait for Hell? Teach the kids now, frighten and bully them into obedience. I regret that I still forced my little ones to attend that awful cult, until the Mormon abuse became physical. My kids had a hard time telling me about that, because they were warned to keep quiet, and were threatened, blamed, and shamed. My children have always been good kids, and they did nothing worse than be tardy for meetings. I investigated, and discovered that most of the children in our ward had been spanked, shoved, kicked, and hit by adult Mormon leaders and teachers. These fathers beat their own children. The Mormon cult has no respect for the rights of human beings. They can lie to your face, without blinking an eye.
Remember, that Nelson is the man who does not believe in unconditional love! I still can't understand how the Mormons believe this man to be a Prophet of God, and a Christian, when he does not believe in Christ-like love.
Mormons coming right out and saying that unconditional love is "anti-Christ" (Nelson's words) is something recent, in this decade. I have always felt that there was no Love in the Mormon cult, but now the Nelsonites have stopped pretending to be loving, kind, and nurturing. No welfare. No activities and pageants. No fun. No talking in the hallways or foyers. No love. No true friendship. No questions. No Heaven for most. If a Mormon is perfect, they can go to that boring, exclusive, POLYGAMOUS heaven, ruled by Mormon scumbags, with JS at the right hand of Christ, judging everyone.
Heaven to a Mormons is a mansion that looks like a temple, windowless so they don't have to witness the suffering of the souls with the "meager roofs", and locked-down like the temples, so these lesser souls can't come in and visit them. The white and delightsome Mormon men will each have many wives, according to their worthiness. Nelson already has two. Other prophets had many more. Yes, there is competition in the Mormon Celestial Kingdom, and wealth, and power, and all the things Mormon men crave. It's a historical fact that JS had two slaves sealed to him as servants for the hereafter.
It's all the "ministering angels" and Telestial beings that will be helping, giving Love to others, playing with the lambs and lions, wearing sandals and following the teachings of Jesus in the hereafter.
It's sad to see people duped into paying 10% of their income for life for--a fictional fraud.
JS, the polygamous prophets, Nelson, and the male Mormon leaders are selling a heaven that most people would not want to buy into! Moreover, they are using their power to create this hierarchy and lifestyle RIGHT NOW, on Earth. And you and I and the gays and the Africans and 99.9% of the populations are not going to be included!
(Along those lines, how can less than 1% of the population "shun" the other 99.9%? The Mormons are shunning themselves away from the rest of the world. That world is ours, now that we have left the cult.)
Nelson has said too much. The Mormon elitism and snobbery is no longer a secret.
I agree that we might see a Ronald Poelman style do-over, with Nelson re-taped at the podium, in front of another "salad bar", with a track of an audience shuffling and coughing. Yes, it will be interesting to read the spin The Deseret News and Ensign put on this--or, most likely, as with the LGBTQ issue, the dead silence!
Nelson is losing his "social filter", which happens with a lot of old people.
End of rant. (Anger makes me lose my social filter)
