Let women pray in church
This is the latest goal for a group of members....(at least I THINK they're members) of the LDS church. I was annoyed at Wear Pants to Church Day but I kept quiet about it. Now after reading a press release about it I can't shut up anymore..
if you (or your friends) have left the church because they feel they are unequal then guess what, that's YOUR problem. not the church. what makes you think that since your feelings are hurt the church is going to change everything? if you understood the LDS religion then you would understand that leaders of the church aren't their own boss. God is. Whatever they do and say in the name of the Church is in the name of the God they worship. don't flatter yourselves into thinking you can change the mind of a higher power because you're butt hurt about being a woman. if you understood the gospel you would understand how valuable and special women are seen in the church. we're actually a pretty big deal to the gospel, even if we've never prayed in General Conference. I'm all for equal rights but seriously? GET OVER IT. I'm sorry you weren't born with a penis, but that doesn't mean you're picked on, and in my opinion, drawing attention to things like this is what creates the inequality. Women are equal to men, that doesn't mean they have to be the SAME as men.
and by the way, it's not just the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that has different gender roles. THE WORLD has gender roles. Gender Roles isn't interchangeable with Gender Inequality. the sooner women stop bitching about EVERYTHING the sooner people will start treating women the same as men. be PROUD of being different. be PROUD of being a woman.
a woman who is proud to not have a penis and doesn't expect to ever be treated like she does.
