Kate Kelly – the face of equality

I have a new hero. Her name is Kate Kelly and she is going to hell. Not sent there by God, or you, or me. But sent there by her church and denomination.

You see, Kate has a website called “Ordain Women.” No problem with that for most people. Seventh Day Adventists also have a facebook site called “Women’s Ordination” and my website promotes women’s ordination because I, too, am part of this movement that is long overdue. I don’t suppose we are going to hell, but Kate is.

You see, Kate is a Mormon, and she was excommunicated by her church June 23, 2014.

That means that she was stripped of her baptism, and can no longer call herself a Mormon.

By doing this to her, Kate Kelly is now the face of women’s equality. All she wanted was to be equally recognized in her church, with full citizenship. But those above her wanted to remain above her, so she was kicked off the platform. It’s funny that they think they have this spiritual authority. I am not a Mormon and this is not about that religion. It is about people who think they have the path to God and that they are the caretakers of that path, and that anyone who does not stick to their path is going to hell.

Will you stand up with Kate Kelly and add your face and voice to hers for women’s equality?

    Good grief! The Catholic Church will excommunicate a priest for ordaining women, but it’s not because of his beliefs about ordaining women, it’s for his disobedience to his higher church authorities. The Catholic Church will not excommunicate a woman simply for wanting to be ordained or for blogging about it!

    The LDS church, by excommunicating a woman for wanting to be ordained, has raised their suppression of women to a primary doctrine of their faith. Shame on them.
