Sunday in Outer Blogness: Ordination edition

chanson is on vacation this week, so I’m going to attempt Sunday in Outer Blogness.

On the faithful side of outer blogness, things have been astir about female ordination.  Not surprisingly, many faithful mormons disagree about this issue.

Considering the last time feminists called for female ordination they were excommunicated, my hope is that this time will be different.  Personally, I want to cheer the small victories, but it also seems a little like crumbs from the table…

On the post/former/ex/not faithful side, things have been relatively quiet this week. There was snow, even though it’s now officially spring.

Can outsiders understand mormon culture?  Can a mixed faith marriage work?  There was some discussion of the LGBT mormon movement.  There are some up sides to being a post mormon.  Can mormons and former mormons agree on anything?

When does correlation equal causation?  What does it mean to be raised a mormon woman?  What is selfish anyway?

Have a great week everyone!

  1. Good round-up – there have been a lot of good debates going on lately. I especially liked the correlation and causation post; that is something that I feel needs to be talked about.

    Wow, those posts on female ordination are inspiring!! Especially your own post — you got the crux of the issue.

    Thanks so much for doing this!!! Not only was I in Paris, but Google suddenly flaked and pulled the plug on Google Reader. Yeah, I know, free service and everything. But still, I check my reader almost every day, and I got one notice that they were planning to discontinue the service, and gave a date a few days in the future for when it would be gone, so I made a mental note to download my reading list. Then at my next login — well before the date they’d said — suddenly no more Reader. I have my Outer Blogness reading list in Outer Blogness, thank heavens, but I had a bunch of secular blogs I was reading and now I have to find them again…

    I guess this is a hint that it’s time to find an alternative to gmail….?

    Sorry for the ramble — great roundup!!

    chanson – that’s odd. Reader still works for me. They wouldn’t have turned it off in Europe first, would they?

    @3 I figured it out — they simply removed the link from the menu on the gmail page. Reader is still there, I just have to find it myself. I think that’s a sign that it’s time to download my complete reading list (and maybe find an alternate reader) in case Google Reader really does disappear.
