People need to get a life. The economy is in the toilet. People are suffering throughout the world because of no work and exploitation. Many are poor without a pot to crap in...and we have this.

However, the good news is that Mormonism has made its mark and is now a frontline church and so, it must put up with nonsense as any other mainline church.

Yes. They should be worried about the important things like how many earrings a girl wears.

Looks like you're more concerned with the temporal than the spiritual. How sad. :sad:

I have whyme on ignore, and the problem is that when he gets quoted and hence brought to my notice it always seems to be because he has said something particularly stupid.

I mean, hello? The Mormons are going to have General Conference come hell, high water or economic meltdown. Allowing women to pray publicly during General Conference will do nothing to reduce the effectiveness of the CoJCoLDS as an agent of national regeneration. In fact, by making the church seem just that little bit less weird it can only do good to the cause that whyme seems to espouse.

What the hell is his problem?

Perhaps ignoring him is the best course of action. He seems driven to answer criticisms of the church regardless of whether or not he's thought through his arguments. It's like he believes that just putting up any type of counter argument counts for something.

That Rosa Parks...she shoulda just gotten a life. How dare her care about sitting in that seat on the bus when there was a perfectly good spot for her at the back. Not only that, but didn't she understand the sate of world affairs at the time??? I mean, children in Africa were starving and women in all parts of the world were being raped!

The 15 old men that seem to be stuck in the 1950's are the ones that need to get a life. As usual, any change to the church has to come from pressure from the outside. You would think that will all this modern day revelation talk, things could be different, but they are not.

The church is consistently 30 years behind and usually the last one to acknowledge any social or civil rights advances.

this Facebook group is frankly a much better approach than the Pants one (not that there was anything wrong with that one) -- it's a simple, concrete, actionable request to change an institutional policy with no theological basis.

i look forward to seeing Newsroom squirm over their response to this one.

As a nonenglish, I did understand the word You created here - at once.

The word telestial has remained in the mystery status...

Yup. The women are not asking if they can exercise any 'priesthood function' so far as I can see. They are just asking that some women may be allowed to pray in public at General Conference, as representatives of the great mass of praying LDS women. Hard to think of a reason against that.

Well, let me put it this way: during the last three months, we had 'wear a biege shirt day' to church for a protest, 'wear pants day to church' for a protest and now a Facebook page about women giving the opening and closing prayer at general conference. People need to get a life.

Now I see whyme (whom I have on ignore) has popped up again:

If whyme has posted any kind of coherent argument against women being allowed to participate in the public prayer offered at General Conference, please quote him. If not, please don't bother.

I think that exmormons and mad hatters are attempting to nitpick their way through Mormonism. In truth, they would never be satisfied. There will always be something to moan and groan about. It is endless, never ending.

He ain't Catholic, that's for sure. Unless of course you count him hanging out with his imaginary nun and priest friends. Nobody else has been able to see them. :rolleyes:

They don't claim him, Mormons don't claim him, what to do, what to do, what to do with the whack a do?
