lol...people would like to see world peace and well, not in this world's life time.
According to the Christian Bible, God designed man to take care of woman and woman to give birth and suckle the baby and nurture it with the man.
Well in a process called evolution, a stated non-god influenced process, even a non-intelligent process designed the female human to give birth and suckle life while the male human was designed to take care of the female and children.
The Mormon church is founded on principles established 2000 years ago. So I have my doubts that except for making some noise, ordainwomen will accomplish much but for making a small wave that will slowly dissipate and disappear. This isn't the first time females have protested that they should be priesthood holders and I'm sure it won't be the last group.

Yet there were female Prophets in the Bible. The Mormon church was founded on the principles of a sexual pervert, liar, thief, and murder.

Jesus founded his church principles on a liar, several doubters, one that attempted murder, another that loved money more than his Lord and one that was a murderer. What now?

Shows the power of forgiveness, doesn't it? But that has nothing to do with the fact there were female Prophets in the Old Testament.

Interesting statement that you speak of the forgiveness Jesus has when you show none at all, when all you show is a overwhelming want/need to judge others and their life from a babe to death and decide if by your godlyness if their worthy of heaven or hell.
And I didn't say there weren't female prophets. Now what?

But, I thought only men can hold the priesthood, according to you and Mormonism?

I forgive you. Feel better?

The fact that you 'thought' this out is some more proof that you failed Mormonism 101 and Bible history 101.
Ignorant questions for you. They both give you answers you should already know. Does a prophet HAVE TO be a priesthood holder? Or, can only priesthood leaders be prophets?

BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ WRONG ANSWER. A wrong answer because once again you prove what you don't know of Mormons you like to PRETEND that you know something about.
See, the honest Christian side of you that we hardly see in these threads, that side of you with actual information would have said in the Bible and in Mormonism one doesn't need to hold the priesthood to be a prophetess. And Mormonism 1012 which covers the Bible and all their works will tell you past ancient persons have been a prophet without holding the priesthood.
But your pathetic ignorance doesn't know that.

In a formal sense yes, but not even close to accurate if you actually knew what Mormonism is.

Go read your bible and ask yourself if Esther was a prophet, and had the priesthood.

Whew.....you stupid, pathetic, psycho, ignorant, negative, tunnel vision discriminating prejudiced bigot of all things Mormon. You once again committed a murderous deed. Go and fricking hang yourself! lol.
We were talking of OLD/NEW TESTAMENT PEOPLE CALLED PROPHETS. Did you forget?
Let's paste your own words so you'll see by fact YOU WERE REFERENCING OLD TESTAMENT WOMEN PROPHETS, not Mormon prophets. Fricking pathetic ignorance beyond comprehension...lolol.
YOU SAID...."But that has nothing to do with the fact there were female Prophets in the Old Testament."
YOU REFERENCED FEMALES THAT WERE CALLED PROPHETESSES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. NOT MORMONS.

Your priesthood was from Sidney rigdon, cause infact, there wasn't no angel (Peter, James and John). How can these three be angels?
God gave all the powers to christ, but then Joseph smith wants to take away the power from christ. Same when he claimed, that no man will enter the Mormon heaven without his consent. Christ said there is no other name on earth or heaven except his name.

Mormon prayed to a polygamist heavenly father. Joseph smith Redefine god to fit his polygamist agenda!

Christ is the only high priest. Melchizedek was known as the prince of peace and king of salem.

In the letter to the Hebrew, Jesus Christ is identified as a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek, and so Jesus assumes the role of High Priest once and for all.

According to Mormonism it is a priesthood office:

First: The prophet is the only man who speaks for the Lord in everything.

In section 132 verse 7 of the Doctrine and Covenants [D&C 132:7] the Lord speaks of the prophet—the president—and says:

“There is never but one on the earth at a time on whom this power and the keys of this PRIESTHOOD are conferred.”

http://www.lds.org/liahona/1981/06/fourteen-f...

"Prophet" being a "priesthood" calling means that Mormonism has to believe the women prophets of the Bible did have the priesthood. Show me a quote from your leaders that say otherwise.

lol...more like Carole??? lololol...and instead of replying in an intelligent, civil, thought out manner as you were doing for a bit, you now lapse back to making stupid thinks, stupid writes comments.
You referenced female prophets. I responded. You than make an accusation about Mormon prophets and how I am wrong in my previous response. Are you manic depressive or bipolar? Why do you have such a hard time sticking to a conversation YOU BROUGHT UP? You're like a fish in a stream when it comes to conversations. You'll be going one direction and BAM you drop the conversation and head off talking about something else and forget what you were just speaking about. Other times you don't answer because it'll mean being honest which you don't like to be in conversations.
What is your mental? I just want to understand why you have such a hard time staying on topic.

Conversation cowards revert to childish words when they feel they can't respond as an adult as you commonly do it. So no, there's nothing your childish displayed thinking could reply to. Maybe when the adult comes back, that's possible :)
