I support the LDS church in not allowing protesting on their private property and not letting the women attend the priesthood meeting. Last year, the LDS started publicly broadcasting the priesthood session on BYUTV, and I also believe on the internet like other sessions of general conference. These ladies can watch it at home with their husbands and sons rather than sending them off to the stake center.
Women not being ordained to the priesthood was never something I had an issue with. Polygamy, yes. General treatment of women, especially single women, yes. I don’t have an issue with a male-only priesthood.
I think the Ordain Women group actually have more of a case than the people who think the Catholic Church should ordain women to the priesthood. In the early LDS church, women actually blessed each other and their children openly. They were not ordained to the priesthood or have priesthood authority, but they certainly exercised priesthood power. Even today, women exercise priesthood authority in the temples to provide washings and anointings to other women. I did this when I was an ordinance worker at the temple.
When men and women marry in the LDS temple, they enter into the “patriarchal order” of the priesthood. While women are not ordained to the priesthood in the LDS church, there is an unspoken, untaught, implicit priesthood that women hold. This is why I believe that women will eventually be ordained to the priesthood in the LDS church. I do not believe the priesthood the women will hold will be the same or equal to the priesthood the men hold. It will be different. I believe the women will have different roles and responsibilities in their “priesthood offices”, but they will be ordained nonetheless.
