Sunday in Outer Blogness: Secret and Sacred Edition!
Let’s start this week’s theme off right with a story in which an attractive woman sticks her finger up Kuri’s butt.
In other secret/sacred body news, an obsessive focus on which body parts women cover or show is not a good way avoid reducing women to objects. And it’s getting out of hand. Nate Oman would like to see women have the priesthood, but wonders how it would be possible to do it and still maintain eternal gender roles.
And what’s like your body? Oh, yeah — a temple! I hear there was an interesting dedication recently. (Yeah, that’s where you get married if you don’t want people gossiping about you.) Also, there’s a rumor of a new revelation to be announced, and some speculation as to what it might be!! Well, whatever it is, it probably won’t be “official doctrine”.
In Romney-land, there’s some Mormon-on-Mormon action, after Romney’s latest gaffe. Not to mention the tax data too sacred to release. (Should I even mention the voter fraud issue?) Is business sacred or not? Well, maybe fasting will help.
Even if Mormonism isn’t always a perfect fit, there’s something romantic about it. Some home-team pride. Things you miss when you go. Well, sort of. For those who still connect with a Mormon identity, Post-Mormon Girl asks who owns the term “Mormon”, and Kent Larsen asks if literature should have to be faith-centered to be called Mormon.
And here in Switzerland, it’s time for bed. We just had a lovely birthday party for my son — he just turned 11, finally old enough to go to Hogwarts!! Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday as well.
