Just a few thoughts on this article in the NYTimes about the church’s meeting about 2 “radical” LDS members.
First off, the guy who runs Mormon Stories? He’s LDS? Really? That whole site gives me the heebie jeebies. It doesn’t seem very honest of him to run that site and then call himself LDS. I’ll leave that there.
I feel bad for the Ordain Women lady. It’s not our place to judge her. We will only get her version of the story, we will never know what happens in that meeting or why whatever decision it is, was made. She seems actually heartbroken. I just feel like her constant pushing of our latter day prophet is tearing her up inside. Maybe she’ll be happier as an Ex. She can’t seem to reconcile.
Anyway, that’s what I have to say about that.
I just think it’s a horrible time for them, and their church leadership. I really appreciated my cousin’s blog entry about drawing trenches. I think he’s right. You need to be careful where you draw your trench. Good words. Good luck to all involved. I, personally, will be praying for all of them.
