"He spoke of some of the women who have powerfully shaped his life and
observed that “a woman’s moral influence is nowhere more powerfully
felt or more beneficially employed than in the home.”But maybe
some women's influence could be just as powerfully felt and beneficially
employed in fields other than the home. This is about power and responsibility,
and women have proven that they are as able to wield power and take on
responsibility as are men.
To bobdc6 - the world would have you think this way. Women wherever and
whenever possible need to be in the home. And husbands need to step up
and support their wives in this endeavour. It's not a contest or about

ME, ME, ME, it's about families and making a better society. IMHO

Mother Teresa take note.
To "Truthseeker" yes, lets look at Mother Teresa. Lets imagine that she
had 6 kids. Now, imagine that she continued to help the poor as much as
possible while raising her kids with the same ideals that she has. As her kids

So why not do the right thing and give women the priesthood and make a better
family, home, church and community.
skeptic, are you saying that the current abilities of women to improve homes and
families are inadequate? Do go on.
Anonymous, no, I am not saying what you said at all. I am saying that there are
those who say the priesthood is a good thing, and I am saying if that is true
then give it to the women also and let them do some good things with it; unless
the men are afraid the women may out perform them. But then that is just that
much more reason for women to have the priesthood to help the men with their
To "skeptic" the women do have the priesthood. It is just that many
forget that they do have the priesthood.Read "The Temple
Garment: 'An Outward Expression of an Inward Commitment'" on the
LDS website. It teaches that once a man or woman has been through the LDS
temple, they are clothed in "the garment of the holy priesthood". Why
would women be clothed in the garment of the holy priesthood if they were not
given the priesthood?
