I am so totally impressed with so many amazing LDS women. And now all these
great young 19-year olds out serving on missions. I am so proud of you all for
your sacrifices as you serve our Savior.
It never fails: when the mainstream media wants to do a piece about Mormons,
they feel the need to dredge up disaffected members for interviews. Why?That's the same as doing a piece on Democrats, but interviewing
Republicans for it. Odd.
Poor NYT. Still stuck in the 70s and trying to dredge up feminism. Even when
they try, they fail. This is NOT a great article for the role of sister
missionaries, but an attempt to reintroduce the failure of liberated females to
a new crop of young women. And I agree with Mom of 8's "they feel the
need to dredge up disaffected members for interviews." Because it's
what they do in their attempt to show the seeming "under-belly" of a
religion with disaffected members. For the New York Times, misery loves company.
The findings of a New York Times story on any subject is questionable both as to
accuracy of what it says, what it does not say, and what their agenda really
is.If you are looking for all the TRUE news that is fit to print,
the Deseret News is a pretty good choice. The New York Times is
not. They have been repeatedly inaccurate in many of their stories, have
deliberately put America's security at risk by disclosing highly classified
information, and their willful omission of reporting on some subjects is equally
All LDS women are required by the patriarchal authority to live prescribed roles
and allowed behaviors. They are not free. But they think they are: "freedom
is running loose in harness". May the wind of freedom blow for these women.
