Brooks respects Ordain Women’s efforts to advance "serious conversation about women’s equality in Mormonism," she writes. "I will stand with them this April 5."

As to the question of Mormon doctrine, Kelly says there is "no scripture or statement by any prophet or apostle that says women cannot be ordained."

The Bible, she notes, has several examples of women who were "prophetesses or apostles."

Kelly points to the LDS Church’s ninth Article of Faith, which reads in part, "We believe that [God] will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God."   

That could include ordination of women, she says. "That is what we are praying for."
