Letter: Force a change, women
First Published Jun 27 2014 04:38 pm • Last Updated Jun 27 2014 04:38 pm

The issue of apostasy and self-respect might have involved similar issues in the Catholic Church and the limited roles nuns are required to accept, but in Utah the issue is the LDS versus Kate Kelly.

I’m completely supportive of Kate Kelly’s belief that an elevated spiritual status of the LDS could be achieved with muc h-needed policy changes.

Many males and females believe that God is a male and therefore allows males to make the decisions while the females obediently march two paces to the rear and avoid male droppings as best they can.

Males, with notable exceptions, have done an unworthy job of enhancing human progress. By and large, the males have been the hunter/gatherer and warriors while the females usually allow themselves to become pregnant, carry the unborn for nine months, assume an unfair share of the burdens of parenthood, and often enjoy too few of life’s rewards.

Attention, women! It’s past time to force a change! Kate Kelly’s and her supporters’ position was an honorable one. Since she has been found guilty and has been excommunicated, her followers should request that "fate" and, if necessary, demand it.
