"I stayed because it was God and Jesus Christ that I wanted to follow and be like, not individual human beings." Chieko Okazaki Dialogue interview

"I am coming to envision a new persona for the Church as humble followers of Jesus Christ....Joseph and his early followers came forth with lots of triumphalist rhetoric, but I think we need a new voice, one of humility, friendship and service. We should teach people to believe in God because it will soften their hearts and make them more willing to serve." - Richard Bushman

Mom3, thanks for the reference. I really enjoy her Hawkgirl's comments and perspective. :thumbup: I'm not a feminist, but I support women's lib, so it would be great to see Heavenly Mother acknowledged a lot more in the church's doctrine and either see women get the priesthood or getting to bless the sick, like Joseph Smith gave to women.

At first I thought it said BBC, and got REALLY excited.

I always enjoy your comments, Hawkgirl. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for this Blog post Hawkgrrl. Thank you for linking to it Mom3.

Gender inequality in the church is very entrenched.

Yep. Hawk is good people. :D

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

Thanks for sharing, Mom (and Hawk). I've shared it with a couple people I think might benefit from it.
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."
