“While this event was originally planned to use a campus classroom, it was not initiated by BYU-Idaho,” according to a university statement from BYU-I.
The event was organized by Michael Williams, a marriage and family therapist in Rexburg.
The event was canceled by a local stake of the Church.
Williams told The Daily Beast that he does not act on behalf of the Church, but took it upon himself to organize the event.
