Commenting on the R-rated movie thing, I don't see why a quote from President Benson isn't enough to show that an actual prophet has told us not to see R-rated movies. It specifically says, "Don't see R-rated movies or vulgar videos or participate in any entertainment that is immoral, suggestive, or pornographic" (President Ezra Taft Benson, "Conference Report," April 1986, p.58). I'm sure this is the quote that seminary teacher was referring to, and it seems pretty clear to me that we're not "putting words in the apostles' mouths." That's all.
