MR says: I'm not sure if the author got it right. What do you think Mormon women really want?

As Mitt Romney becomes the first LDS candidate to secure a major party presidential nomination, Mormon women will be watching with special interest. Then again, we have always been interested in politics. Mormon women in Utah enjoyed the right to vote as early as 1870—a time in American history when many women rejected political involvement as the proper domain of men, and fully five decades before the achievement of U.S. women’s suffrage.

All this article does is purpetuate the rampant judging and gossiping that goes on in the church. This apostle of the Lord did not give this talk so we could all sit around and decide what it means amongst ourselves and judge others according to our judgement. He said it so we can prayerfully think about how we honor the Lord when we enter His house, in the way we dress and act. This poll in ridiculous. If he meant no sandals he would have said no sandals--just as Pres. Hinkley once said no more peircings than one in each ear. If he wanted to be specific he would have been. That means it is between you and the Lord. Purhaps we all need to be reminded of another apostles talk about gossiping and judging others. STOP IT!

I think the most important thing to remember, is to not judge someone by what they are wearing. There were times when I was growing up, where all I had to wear to church was flip flops. And I know that there were people in the congregation that would loudly whisper about how inappropriate my dress was, and what they didn’t know is that what I was wearing was the nicest that I had. Do I think they are inappropriate if it is obvious that the individual has something better to wear, yes. But I still will not let my judgment of them, (or essentially) my pride and vanity effect me or let Satan ruin the Spirit that is to be felt at church. I can however, make a conscious effort, to lead by example, and not wear anything to church that I view as inappropriate or let my children dress irreverently either.

Joanna Brooks is about two steps away from apostate. Why do you people continue to give her a voice within mainstream Mormonism?
