85 years ago today - Jun 3, 1935

In your letter of June 1 you ask whether or not the Church has changed its attitude towards the playing of cards.

In reply will say that there has been no change and the advice given by President Smith, to which you refer, has been reiterated by myself and others of the General Authorities from time to time.

Card-playing is a waste of time and frequently leads to quarreling and cheating, and sometimes worse evils.

[Heber J. Grant, Letter to Anna Brown, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
