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.

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.
Theocratic warfare is the tool used by the desperate to defend the absurd
No man has ever owned me and I would feel really bad for the first one to try. Wait, one did but It didn't work out well for him. Mormon women as a whole are NOT oppressed as everyone likes to make it seem. The ones who are, are usually much older women who were raised to allow men power over them, not through religious beliefs but because of the popular vote by society once upon a time.

"Of the devil" is Mormonspeak for "she's sexy." In Utah that only means they'll talk about behind your back. In Iran it's grounds for execution.

You claim to be led by God and you disrespect people here, you cuss and call vulgar names, you've wished to murder, you stated you supported all the wrong that happened to the early Mormons and you constantly revert to a childish attitude. Did I miss anything?

Why don't "females hold certain offices in the church, why "don't they hold the priesthood"? Hilary will change all of that..so is your question..why are there old boys clubs and glass ceilings? Are those valid excuses for misogyny within the one true church? Funny how society continues to erode all that truth, isn't it?
You have to ask? Because The worship of God in the OT is male based and the Christian worship of God in the NT is male based. God came as a male to Abraham in the OT. In the OT it's never written that God ever appeared as a female. In the NT God came as a male again.
The LDS try and reflect what was when Jesus walked the earth.
But I do fully understand that modern Christianity has nothing but disgust, disrespect and a bad taste in their mouth for what Jesus did concerning his church and how he set it forth with all males while the wives were at home tending the children and taking care of the home and it's needs.

Discrimination from the past is justification for discrimination in the future or today to No Surprise.
lol...oh yeah, you bet dude. God discriminated and thought it well and good throughout the OT choosing male leaders over female leaders and Jesus as God totally discriminated just 2000 years ago by establishing a 'nearly' all male religion a second time. And you believe in the book you claim God your almighty discriminator put together by his discriminating Spirit. lol...you're such an uninformed head case dude just saying...lol.

Did you miss anything? Yes....you didn't address the revelations from the prophets contained in the video. You know, the topic of the post. And oh yeah, you forgot LIAR LIAR.

Actually I didn't miss anything. Jesus never stated how one could harm a child/person of innocence. He just stated if they were harmed the person harming them should by suicide/self murder drown himself in the nearest body of water. According to dana that's not an inspirational statement by a person being under the influence of a righteous God yet the verse states God stated it.
Dana stated ignorantly 'Quotes by people Mormons claim are lead by God! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! " Yet what he's said while claiming to be led by God makes him no different from those he was laughing at, thus laughing at himself.
And I didn't lie about anything dana, I mean pearl ;)P

You understand that modern Christianity doesn't follow Jesus' example of what to do with women?? I'm sorry, but what did you just say?

Is Dana a prophet with millions of followers? Really, I know you claim Prophets are just men, but when they claim revelation shouldn't we hold them to a higher standard and then just go ahead and laugh with them?

He forgets that there were female prophets in the OT. But lets not confuse him with the facts.

All of a sudden he is concerned about what Jesus said for a change. Yet when I pointed out that Jesus said that in the next life we aren't married or given in marriage, Jesus didn't really mean that.

So, I have a question( that won't be answered, I know but you freaks make great screen shots)
If a person comes out as gay and works for the church(over a decade)and that person is celibate, does the church have a valid reason to fire him? As a temple worthy Mormon with a spotless work record? How does this work with the current stance? Is the COB a glass ceiling for lgbt's? If they discover one, they get rid of them...the lizards must be allergic.

And are there any openly gay celibate bishops, stake presidents, etc? Mitch Mayne yes but who else?

Well, just look at how many black General Authorities there have been and are today. Look at a current picture of them. There's enough white guys to make a KKK rally. And blacks were able to begin holding the Priesthood in 1978.

But I think Gordon B. Hickley was the first gay LDS prophet.
