Addressing honest questions is an important part of building faith. 

To those of faith who, looking through the colored glasses of the 21st century, honestly question events or statements of the Prophet Joseph from nearly 200 years ago, may I share some friendly advice: For now, give Brother Joseph a break!

It is very curious to note that these two quotes are from the same section of the same talk. Anderson says addressing honest questions is important, but follows it up with the advice to ignore those questions.

Or in other words: dismiss and ignore those honest questions about events or statements. Put your issues on the proverbial shelf… indefinitely.
