When I was growing up; we always were taught in Seminary, Sunday School about Free Agency.
A decade later, there was a talk at G.C. about "Free Agency" and how we shouldn't use the phrase, "Free Agency"...but just all it Agency. Because "Agency" already means free to do whatever your choice is; but you are responsible for your agency and will have to pay or receive on how you act on that agency.
To this day, I still slip when speaking with TBMs and use the phrase "Free Agency".
In a way, I have to agree with their reasoning, but by their own description...The Mormon corporation Inc. will have to be judged by moral agency in being open on history, finances, attendance, temple usage, etc... Reported abusers of women, children...responsiblity on creed, abusive language, leaders, etc...which causes so much harm and suicide and depression.etc... https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/new-era/2014/10/free-agency-or-moral-agency?lang=eng
