    The Glory of Men is the Woman

    Families make situations like that one work every day. There's nothing wrong with being a stay at home mom. If that's your thing, fine. And, there is nothing wrong with being a successful attorney....while being a wife and mother. Women do that all the time.

    I guess we run in different crowds.

    Fasting - some questions

    That's actually a great substitute for fasting. Never thought of that.

    I agree it doesn't. Yet, oddly, so many self described adherents to the philosophy of "patriarchy" think women should be....barefoot and pregnant.

    Oregon Woman sues Church for reporting abuse

    Combine this with the Cardinal Pell craziness going on and I'm surprised the Catholic church even exists down under anymore. I'm against laws like-I hate seeing the government gain this much control over churches-but the Catholic church made their bed.

    Oregon Woman sues Church for reporting abuse

    Agree, that was part of it. The effects of the scandal are devastating to the church. Look what happened in Ireland. Yes, I know there are a lot of reasons-and the priest sex abuse scandal is right up there.

    Oregon Woman sues Church for reporting abuse

    That, and they lied, stuck their heads in the sand, and then tried everything possible to downplay the situation. Claim "media bias", ignore calls for reform, blame "the gays". It showed their massive arrogance and frankly in some cases, outright cruelty. If the leaders had integrity they would have accepted blame from the start and tried to make things right immediately. It's basically a plan for what not to do. Other churches (the intelligent ones) should take note.

    My thoughts completely. My heart breaks for the girl, but she's going about this the wrong way.

    In order for a Catholic confession to be valid, you have to tell everything. You can't withhold and mortal sins that you are aware of. IE-I can't tell the priest about my two mistresses and deliberately leave out the three other women I'm currently sleeping with. Well, this is exactly what the Catholic church did. Instead of just coming clean, they played games, lived in denial, and tried to cover things up. in other words, they did the one thing that they drilled into our heads that you can't do. The damage they did to the church, especially in New England, is unfathomable.

    Yup. The priest scandal caused huge damage to the church, but the cover up, arguably, caused much more.

    Don't we always honor the law? Not arguing, honest question.

    High church Anglicans and Lutherans also have private confession.
  13. You actually are. I know of many people who give lip service to what you said, but then are only friends with those who think the same way they do on all the issues. Political or religious.
  14. As the world gets more and more secular and more hostile to Christian beliefs, I think "mainstream" Christianity will be more accepting and tolerant of the LDS faith.

    Female v. Male College Ratios

    Agree. Education will only take you so far. You need experience.
