Will Monson be called as the new President of the LDS church?
Here's the question:
I know Pres. Thomas S. Monson is the 1st counselor of the LDS church, but does that guarantee his position to be the next President? David O. McKay was 2nd counselor to George Albert Smith. And in 1951, McKay was sustained as President of the Church even thought Pres. J. Reuben Clark Jr. faithfully served for almost 17 years.
I have absolutely nothing against Thomas S. Monson. He is a great man. I'm just wondering if there is a policy in place or if there is a possibility of the same thing happening again, as it did with David O. McKay.
