Except for calling him the Mormon Church leader, the article was very well-written. The nickname "mormon" was given to us by people trying to defame and criticize our faith many many decades ago. We answer to it to simplfy conversations! President Hinckley was certainly an outstanding American citizen--wait, no, let's go ahead and call it like it is! Not only was President Hinckley an outstanding American citizen, he was an outstanding citizen of the world! He spent many hours daily taking care of the poor and needy of the world. He will be missed... but the work of the Church will go on since the Creator, Saviour is at the head of the Church! God Bless!!

Lowly mortals have had revalations. Isn't it a miracle? Remember Moses, Isaiah and many, many other prophets in the Scriptures. Lowly mortals. I believe Joseph Smith received revelation, and so did President Gordon B. Hinckley. We can receive personal revelation from God for ourselves.

Jn 14:6 " I ( Jesus Christ ) am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes thru the father ( God ) but by me ". To paraphrase a verse in the bible ( God's inspired word ) " Its terrible to fall into the hands of a living God ". I would hate for him to meet my Lord at this time, but there is hope for the rest of us as Luke 19:10 states " For the Son of Man ( Jesus Christ ) came to seek and to save what was lost". Hope can spring eternal to those who come to Christ! Acts 4:12, " Salvation is found in no other ( Mohammed, Budha, Joseph Smith,etc ) for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved ".

With all due respect for the man's passing, the church is still a cult that minimized the role of women and minorities-- anyome who doesn't fit into their white power structure.

You have not checked it out yourself otherwise you would find a big difference. Women are not minimized but have a different role than men. All people of all races are welcome in this church all the time. Come and find out firsthand.

We do worship Jesus Christ not Joseph Smith and we know that Jesus Christ is the one we must follow. I don't know what Bible you are reading where it says that it is terrible to fall into the hands of the living God. The only time I fear falling into His hands is if I am going against his commandments and no repenting of my sins. Please read carefully and if you are not sure then contact our church and find the truth from us, not others who have an ax to grind by disinforming people.

Why can't woman have the same -- that means equal -- role as men?

What an amazing man who did so much good. I don't know much about the LDS church, but everything I do hear leads me to want to learn more about it. The fact that so many people have been harassing Romney about his religion to me just shows that there is something about this religion. Why else would people be trying to criticize it so much if it wasn't some thing bigger. From reading about President Hinckley, he seems like a charitable Christian man and even the name of there church has Jesus Christ in it. Who better to know if they are Christian then the actually members. I can't understand why anyone would say they are a cult. Don't people have better things to do with there time? It seems to me if we had more people like President Hinckley in the world the world would be a much better peaceful place to live.

Look at it this way, women and men work together but in seperate roles in the family, they procreate together but the women bears and nurtures the children. The man is the provider and protector but still plays a role in raising the children. They work together for the same results but in different roles. So it is in The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, each has a role that is different but just as important as the other. This is what Jesus Christ wants in his church. Equal? I wish I could be as Spiritual as many of the women who are members of this church are. Very few of the women who are members want to have the same role as the men, and they are more interested in following the ways of the world than they are in following the teachings of our Lord and Saviour, even Jesus Christ. Equal? I wish I was equal with the many choice ladies of this church.
