American Idol alum David Archuleta has apologized about a tweet that looked like he seemingly weighed in on the religious freedom debate.
The season-seven runner-up took to Twitter on Saturday, April 4, to share his thoughts on the issue, tweeting, “Romantic love is incomplete. It is a prelude. Love is nourished by the coming of children, who spring from the fountain of love…expressed between a man and a woman in marriage. #PresPacker”
#PresPacker is President Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quarum of the Twelve Disciples. Archuleta was quoting Packer’s Saturday morning remarks made during a biannual conference this past weekend. Packer, who has been married nearly 70 years, also spoke of the challenges facing marriage today -- including financial stress, temptation and illness. The comments in the address come on the heels of Indiana's controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
