|All Are Alike unto God…|

So, by now, I know you are all aware of the new editions of the scriptures and the much talked about changes to headings, introductions, study aids, etc.
I am generally pleased with the direction (if not always the destination) of the majority of the “adjustments” I have looked at so far. The new introduction to Official Declaration 2, for example, is receiving a lot of attention:
Questions on the divine origin of the ban aside (full disclosure — I personally don’t believe it was of God), I cannot get over the irony of citing that particular verse from 2 Nephi in the context of expanding the pool of those who may be ordained to the priesthood.
If “black and white” are equal in the sight of God in terms of their eligibility for the priesthood, why, then, aren’t “male and female”?
