Apostle McConkie continued to say, “ The Book of Mormon sets forth the Doctrines of Salvation in simplicity and plainness so that reasonable men, even from an intellectual standpoint, can scarcely disagree. This leaves religionists in the position whereby they must [ either ] freely accept or openly oppose the Nephite record [ and then explain, excuse, alibi, or rationalize their own position ]. There is no middle ground, no gray area, no room for compromise.” 1  
     
  Those are very strong statements, but what you have stated appears to be true. There does not seem to be any middle ground. You are either right or wrong. For that very reason I have great concerns about the outcome of this trial. But I warn you that I will not show partiality for either side. I will make judgment strictly upon the basis of the Facts, Evidence, and Testimony presented.  
I wouldn ‛t want it to be any other way. Let Truth be the ruling factor.
