Hmmm... Is this "55.9 percent of the vote cast by the ecclesiastical college of the church" telling God what to do? Or did God just tell 55.9% of the voters what he wanted?

I've always wondered how people see sense in voting on what their church doctrine will be (and then informing God later). Instead of God telling them what his doctrine is.

These votes to change church doctrine always make me wonder... who's running the Church... God or the 346 members of the ecclesiastical college of the church?

Does God run his kingdom based on popular vote? I didn't think so.

I have no problem with policy changing... but it just seems like it would happen in a different way. Not the college telling God what his doctrine will be.

I look forward to the first female Mormon bishop.

Cool! Religion is the problem. Not God. Men have made God in his own image: sexist, homophobic, intolerant and prejudiced. This is really cool to see that even religious organizations are getting somewhere. A female was also appointed in UK & Ireland today too.

Though... Sweden is very ambivalent towards religion anyway, so it makes sense that they would lead the world on this, just like they did with gay marriage.

Props to Sweden, Scandinavia and the British Isles. :)
