Any moron mormon woman that wears pants, even dress pants to church will be an outcast. If you have to tell yourself something doesn't seem right but do it anyways then its not right. Ex. Temple BS and mormon standards

This entire " wear pants to church day " movement seems juvenile to me. They can already wear pants to church. Silently protesting during a sacrament meeting is not the place to bring an agenda.
Honestly protesting to wear pants is about as crazy as my kids protesting for the same bed time they already have/ LOL why protest for a right you already have been given?

I have been on that Facebook page quite a bit myself. Except for a few trolls here and there, I have found most of the discussions to be very civil. As for the death threat, that is ridiculous that any man would feel that way, but hey there is always one in any crowd. I don't agree with the venue they have chosen for their protest. Sacrament meeting is the most sacred hour of the week, used to remember the atonement of our saviour, not focus on ourselves or our personal agendas. There have been some attacks by members, but most of us are just in disagreement with the time and place of this protest, not the views themselves.

Yes, it was civil from most. It does appear the page was removed, which only would have been done by the person who created the page. Which saddens me, because it was creating a lot of discussion.

No, it wasn't done by the page creators...it was done by fb because of all the tbm's flagging it.
And No, it was hardly civil. The maliciousness of both men and women was jaw dropping. Like a train wreck, u can't stop watching it.
"standing up to church leaders is like standing up to God" ...twisted, isn't it?

Women are already allowed to wear pants to church. That wasn't what the underlying purposes were. Rather than confront the real issues, they hid behind the thought process that this was nothing more than a show of solidarity to make others who wear pants to feel more welcome in the church.Some of those women were brave enough to actually say what they meant. The rest of them hid behind a false reason.
I don't care if they wear pants. Hell, for all I care they can wear booty shorts and a tube top.
However, when you use the sacrament hour to push that agenda, yes it is wrong.
The sacrament is when we renew our covenants with our heavenly father, when you take away from that by placing yourself and your agenda in front of the reason you are partaking to begin with, you create a contention that doesn't allow the spirit to be felt by yourself.

Instead of thinking of your heavenly father during the sacrament you are instead thinking of what you have accomplished that day.
There are many ways to make that same statement without doing it during sacrament.
I was on that thread a large portion of the day. There were some very negative comments, mostly though it was a discussion by members that was very civil.

Some negative comments??? Wow, I didn't realize how deceitful u are. I've been texting screen shots to a friend today without Internet...u have sooo many intolerant, hateful members in ur cult. I even saw former bishops chastising them.
I do agree with u about something tho. It's ashame fb took it down...I'm hoping they will restore it..because those discussions about sexism need some sunlight.

Ummm, the bishops supported the women. The bishops were chastising the mind boggling amount of hateful, spiteful, judgmental assholes who seem to thrive in your cult. Who are u talking about?
And yes, deceitful. The ugliness of ur brothers and sisters was blinding. For u to describe it any other way is truly pathetic.

Thank you so much for that. That comment was criticized by MANY Mormons, immediately after it was posted. It was one of the FEW hateful post on the site. Im not blinded, I read nearly every post there. You are taking one of the few and saying one of the many. YOU are misrepresenting the page and the faith. Grow up.

U really aren't worth my time. There are in numerous blogs (with screen shots) of the nastiness of ur members going after each other so hatefully that bishops were telling them to stfu. If u consider what happened on that page as civil...u must've been one of the assholes.

No, what I am is honest. I said there were some negative comments made there. Even among members there were some.assholes. However, many people on the page were very civil. Even those of us who disagreed with the venue chosen.. You are being dishonest by making it sound as if all who.were against it were mean and nasty. Apparently, I am worth your time because you are still talking about it.
