Any religious group that values purity and morality must deal with the problem of clannishness. However, clannishness can be largely avoided if the members of the group have a vigorous concern to share. There is a big difference between reaching out and shutting out—and Jesus steadily opposed every hint of the latter.

Richard Lloyd Anderson, “Parables of Mercy,” Ensign, Feb 1987, 20
