Mick Jagger says his music promotes teens to have sex
True (according to Gene R. Cook)
A General Authority, Gene R. Cook, was sitting on an airplane next to Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger. Cook did not recognize Jagger and Mick had to show Cook a magazine with a picture of himself in it to let him know who he was. After visiting for a few minutes, Cook asked Jagger what sort of impact he thinks his music has on the world’s teens. Jagger replies, “Our music is calculated to drive the kids to sex.” He quickly added, “It’s up to them what they do. It’s not my fault. I’m just making a lot of money.”
Jagger went on to say that he had had the missionary discussions taught to him while in England. He also said that there was no God and that people should be able to do whatever they wanted.
Jagger then said loudly, so everyone could hear, that the Book of Mormon was a lie and that anyone who believed in it was a liar. Cook took out a Book of Mormon and placed it in Jagger’s lap and said, “You say it is a lie. I must have missed that part. Show me.” There was complete silence. Cook then bore his testimony and told Jagger that he was the liar and that if he didn’t change his ways, he would be held accountable by the Lord.
It is, of course, possible that Elder Cook was fooled by a Mick Jagger look-a-like or imposter, so this story cannot be confirmed 100%.
