    It was a pleasant surprise to see Yonat Shimron’s name in the byline here. I was an avid reader of her religion coverage for the News & Observer during my four years in Raleigh for grad school at NC State.

    No man has ever been the general president of the Church’ Relief Society, nor the president of the Young Women or Primary. All these important callings are given to women and no sensible man I know would have it otherwise.

    I, as a male, have never given a prayer at general conference nor do I expect to do so. Most male Church members are in the same situation. I could be offended that I have been asked but I am not.

    Most importantly most faithful female members of the Church are mature enough and have enough love for others that they do not hassle general Church leaders about issues raised by a few women who must have some real ego needs if they cannot live comfortably with the present policy.
