Elder Lindsay is about to be transferred to a new area and Bishop Angus (president of The Order’s presiding bishopric) wants to check him out in order to get to him know a little better.
The Order, which is a group of Mormon high priests who initiate new members into their ranks, got interested in Elder Lindsay. In order to initiate a new member, certain sexual rituals are employed, some of which are quite ancient and date back to the restoration of the "true church".
Among the priests these erotic rituals are called "signs and tokens of the priesthood", and they have guarded them as a secret for many years. Bishop Angus is pretty much certain that Elder Lindsay is going to make to the club, but rules are rules… and thus the examination begins…
The ritual begins with these words solemnly spoken: "You have been an excellent servant. Because of your fearless service, I have been asked to extend a new calling to you." Bishop Angus makes it clear to Elder Lindsay and his friend Elder Ricci that they did not do anything wrong, but that the ritual can be a little painful, but also quite pleasant, in a very specific way! However, the boys have no choice and can’t opt out of the ritual. Instead, a complete submission to the authority of the priest is called for.
Elder Lindsay didn’t find anything wrong with this sexually characterized ritual, but Elder Ricci had his doubts. The President sensed that Elder Ricci wasn’t quite certain about this and told him frankly, "We’ll begin the process with Elder Lindsay, while you consider what to do," and then added that whatever happens behind these closed doors must never be told to anyone, as this has always been the rule.
