Do not arouse those emotions in your own body.’ Though the church’s own Handbook … Never mentions ‘masturbation,’ many bishops read the above sentence to mean just that. Some LDS leaders routinely ask both boys and girls about it in every interview.

This article was printed on 17 June 1978, in the same issue that announced the policy reversal which allowed men of black African descent to be ordained to the priesthood. The LDS Church’s health code, called the Word of Wisdom, prohibits the consumption of alcohol, tobacco, and “hot drinks”; church leaders have defined “hot drinks” as “coffee and tea”.

Its dome is 19.8 metres in diameter, and is set directly over the centre of the transept crossing of the choir where the compas is situated, an omphalos (“navel”) stone once thought to be the center of the world and still venerated as such by Orthodox Christians . There was certainly a recognisable Nestorian presence at the Holy Sepulchre from the years 1348 through 1575, as contemporary Franciscan accounts indicate. The Franciscan friars renovated the church in 1555, as it had been neglected despite increased numbers of pilgrims. The Franciscans rebuilt the Aedicule, extending the structure to create an antechamber. A marble shrine commissioned by Friar Boniface of Ragusa was placed to envelop the remains of Christ’s tomb, probably to prevent pilgrims from touching the original rock or taking small pieces as souvenirs. A marble slab was placed over the limestone burial bed where Jesus’s body is believed to have lain.

In 1192, Saladin assigned door-keeping responsibilities to the Muslim Nusaybah family. The wooden doors that compose the main entrance are the original, highly carved doors. The Joudeh al-Goudia (al-Ghodayya) family were entrusted as custodian to the keys of the Holy Sepulchre by Saladin in 1187.

In 2015, it was discovered that the Oslo Catholic Diocese had stated too high membership numbers in the period 2010 to 2014, and therefore received too many state subsidies. The diocese applied for and received state support on behalf of all the Catholic congregations in Norway, because it kept the centralised membership register for all the country’s Catholic congregations. It emerged that employees in the Oslo Catholic Diocese had ‘used the telephone directory to select names that appear Catholic’, for example by appearing to be Polish or Spanish. The diocesan staff searched for the social security numbers of these people, entered them in the membership register and demanded state support for these alleged members. The County Governor of Oslo and later also the Ministry of Culture then demanded that the diocese return the funds that they had been wrongfully paid.

It has been well documented by archaeologists that in the time of Jesus, the walled city was smaller and the wall then was to the east of the current site of the Church. In February 2018, the church was closed following a tax dispute over 152 million euros of uncollected taxes on church properties. The city hall stressed that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and all other churches are exempt from the taxes, with the changes only affecting establishments like “hotels, halls and businesses” owned by the churches. NPR had reported that the Greek Orthodox Church calls itself the second-largest landowner in Israel, after the Israeli government.

Emperor Frederick II (r. 1220–50) regained the city and the church by treaty in the 13th century while under a ban of excommunication, with the consequence that the holiest church in Christianity was laid under interdict.

The naming and blessing of infants — performed by a priesthood holder, often the baby’s father — takes place in the chapel. Baptisms are held in the chapels when Mormon children turn 8 years old or when an adult converts to the faith. The Latter-day Saints also have a practice of annointing and blessing the sick if an ill individual so desires.
