Re: Forget priesthood — some feminists seek a middle way

So-called
"Feminists"
Presume

Those words put me on the defense.

How do we know when the leaders are speaking on behalf of The Lord?
How do we know that the leaders have enquired of The Lord.
Should we just follow in blind obedience?

Re: LDS Church Endorses Female, LDS Chaplains

I read the article twice and still might be missing something but I don't think she is a military chaplain.

Re: Why is the church so bad?

I really don't want to get into bashing the Church so I'll stick with echoing SD's comment about I have changed. Except I haven't changed that much really, I've stopped constraining the inner me.

Re: You need to start responding

I'll quit talking so much. ;)

Sometimes I don't have anything to say.

I'm not much of a cheerleader or someone that has to say something. Usually I just read. Often my responses are "read the handbook, it's available to all."
