    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.

    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 reprehensible.

    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.

    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.

    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.
