The other side of the Coin

For the fairness of debate, and acknowledging there are, in fact,
(may I place in quotes what they mistakingly call themselves) "Feminist" Mormons, in full fellowship in our religion; I present to you, dear reader, an article which I enjoyed the pleasure of debating today. http://www.feministmormonhousewives.org/?p=3863

At the end of the post, the author writes:  "Have we not learned by now that prescribed roles only seem to hold us back and limit us?"

I WOULD ARGUE that living by prescribed gender roles in righteousness and mutual respect for your spouse gives us MORE freedom and in no way limits us, as women.

Search: "The Family: a proclamation to the World" on http://www.lds.org/ to see where the church's roles for husband and wife are outlined. 

Following this prescribed approach is like using an assembly line to get things done MORE efficiently when spouses diversify their efforts instead of trying to compete.  One is not over the other, but jointly yoked. 

I fear women today are spending their energies striving to become equal in the sight of the world with men(which we are all created EQUAL already in the sight of GOD) in the workforce by pushing their feminist objectives which ultimately limits time spent in the home, fulfiling divine roles given to women; thus working counter-productively and as a result, limiting themselves.
