I don't write about deep things here much because I like lots of things and I have add and it's easy to skim the surface and you can tell I like easy based on the frequency of my updates lately. But I wanted to write this even though it's difficult.

First off, I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A mormon. (Cue big gasp.) Not really a huge shocker, but I don't write about it a ton so I thought I should at least put it out there. Lately, there's been a lot of groups within the church. Some want to be ordained to the priesthood of God. Others think that these people are stupid, selfish, comical, deluded, etc. I'm in neither camp really. If the Lord would like women to have the priesthood I'll take it, but if not I won't stomp on and belittle those who ask/plead/call for it. Nothing gets my gumption up more than a minority group being ridiculed, told to stay in their place, leave, or just shut up in more words than that. I don't believe in same gender marriage, but if someone tried to stop or hurt someone for doing so I think I would stand between them. I don't know all the feelings or rhetoric of either group, although the loudest of the naysayers make me cringe to be associated with them. Regardless, I believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His church populated by his imperfect, yet striving people. I am one of them. 


  1. Thank you. What a balanced, reasonable response to all of the madness. I agree with you completely. If God wants to make changes, that's up to him. I sustain the prophet as the only man able to give revelation to the entire church. And I figure if God ever wanted to give women the priesthood, he'd the that prophet know, who would let us know. And like you said, sure, I'd do it, if that's what God wanted.

    But it doesn't seem Chris-like at all to tell these women to leave the church or to really argue with them at all. It isn't our job to be the judge, which I think we should consider a big relief. I wouldn't want to have that job.

  2. Christ-like* not Chris-like. Whoever Chris is, that wasn't who I was talking about haha.

  3. I share your feelings too! (I'm Mormon as well)


Thanks for your nice words. I appreciate them so much.
