Do not tell me speaking out is futile!
Whenever I (or someone I know) speaks up about a problem in the church, an inequity that should be resolved, an issue that needs to be addressed, someone, somewhere pipes up with one of the following:
- You are displaying apostasy by refusing to support the brethren.
- If you make it an issue, the church leaders will refuse to act just to prove they don’t bow to public pressure.
In an article just published a few minutes ago by Peggy Fletcher Stack, she claims that a woman will be praying in a general session of April’s General Conference. I’ve been talking about this forever. I couldn’t be happier!
On her Facebook post linking to her article, she writes, “Dear FB friends, My sources for this story are solid. Trust me. I am a professional journalist. I do not go into print with rumors.”
Peggy is a solid writer. I trust her back.
