When Satan was Booted Out of Heaven

When a subscriber asked Parley P. Pratt why Satan was kicked out of Heaven, how did Parley respond?

a.      With humor

b.      With distain

c.       He scolded the questioner

d.      He couldn’t answer

Yesterday’s answer:

(D)   Give a blessing

Charles C. Rich:   At the battle of Crooked river, when David W. Patten fell mortally wounded, and while bullets were flying thick and fast, he laid down his sword in the heat of the battle and administered the ordinance of laying on hands to the dying hero; after which he resumed the sword, assumed command, and the battle of Crooked river was won by the Saints.
