|Seperate but Roughly Equal|
Sep. 26th, 2011 at 9:10 am
I spent Saturday night watching the Relief Society Broadcast. It only happens once a year, you know. That might make some people uncomfortable. Maybe they would feel that it demonstrates the gender inequity in our Church.Men get their own (super secret) session every six months and women are only addressed once a year! No fair.
Does that get your goat? I don’t really care. Well, I would prefer that the Priesthood session was broadcast like the women’s sessions are, but I’m not losing sleep over it. When I had a calling in Young Women, I attended both the YW and RS broadcasts. I suppose I still could. I like the idea of having seperate meetings for the youth and the adults, because, frankly, we likely have different kinds of lives and could benefit from a different sort of meeting. Those poor men have to go and sit through a bunch of advice geared toward middle-schoolers. That must be a drag. Yeah. In fact, maybe the women are better off, only being on the hook for our once annual apostolic pep-talk.
What do you think?
