Equal means different things...
For instance how many men have babies and have their period?
And how many men want to? None. Men don't get upset because they can't have babies, and they make fun of women because they have periods.

This is a question?
You don't have to spread any more lies... all a person has to do is look through this thread and find out you don't even believe in Genesis.
Whether I believe in Genesis or not has nothing to do with the fact that the women of the LDS church are second class citizens and have no say so in the church.

There is no equality in any church that has a patriarchal hierarchical pyramidal structure as does the church of Later Day Saints.

The way the patriarchal pyramid works in the Mormon church is that the men are awarded extra property (celestial wives) for bowing down to their masters. These celestial wives are under the man who owns them and can be denied entrance to the Mormon heaven at his discretion.

Now only an idiot would consider the mormons to practice equality!

You can lie about it all you want but the reality is easy for anyone with half a brain to see.

I was recently invited to attend a Relief Society function were they darned buttons on aprons for the old folks home, so the occupants would have something to twiddle. I was told it gives the elderly something to do with their hands. Apparently it's very rewarding.

Actually, it's kind of a weird long story, but no I didn't go, and you couldn't pay me to go. Although, I do enjoy talking with Mormon women on a one on one basis, they are for the most part usually highly medicated and once they start talking to a non Mormon woman they will really open up. Their husbands always claim I am of the devil.

I was standing in line at a Costco for a Marie Osmond autograph not long ago and the stories were like train wrecks. One said her son, who became a paraplegic from a dirt bike accident..that she prayed everyday that Heavenly Father would just go ahead and take him..make him whole again in heaven.

Really? Just how many female General Authorities do you have?
How many female presidents have we had? How many female vice presidents have we had? We know why females don't hold certain offices in the church, they don't hold the priesthood. So what excuse does America have for not ever having had a female president or vice president in our land you claim is rife with equality?

Mr. Macho man admits to scorning women by making fun of them for having periods? A real jerk makes fun of a female having periods. A guy lacking common sense with a crude mean streak would tease females about something that most females hate and detest having to go through. And you make fun of them on top of it? Why am I not surprised.

Nooo, YOU view females in the LDS church as second class citizens. You view them that way because you have a low opinion of females it appears or you wouldn't have said that.

Theocratic warfare is the tool used by the desperate to defend the absurd and you do it so consistently.
Now about equality you claim you practice because you don't serve a patriarchal hierarchical pyramidal structure in your own life let's ask some questions that deal explicitly with equality.
How often does your wife hold the door open for you? How often do you sit in the passenger seat while she drives? How often does she lead prayer or a study group with you saying nothing? How often do you cook? Was your wife the main bread winner and now you two live off her savings/retirement? Is the vehicle in her name only? What about the mail? Is it generally in her name? How about any kids? If she had children with you, did you stay home and tend them while she worked?
You are the one that spoke of equality not being in peoples lives.

That's how it is for you and your wife? Is that why you claim that of others? Hmmm?

One? One said what they claim someone else said that probably heard it from another etc and of course to you it has to be a fact you keep spreading like the good rumourmonger you are...
I've been thinking on something, just a thought mind you. I've been thinking of all the mean vile nasty crap you spout of others with such ease and all the rumours you perpetuate of others. I than thought what you'd be like to meet in person. I bet you're one of the warmest nicest people to meet. But I would bet $20 fast and quick I could talk to people that know you/met you and would find out you're a perfectionist at back stabbing. Am I wrong?
