Betty, Pat, Lady Bird, Jackie, Mamie, Bess, Eleanor.

That, of course, is the list of all the first names of US Presidential wives back to 1932, in correct reverse chronological order, and done from memory, of which mine is nothing to write home about.

Now try to do the same thing for wives of the LDS presidents for the last 80 years. It's a shorter list, even. Ten names will get you back to 1918.

The number of names you won't recall will tell you all you need to know about how important women are in LDS Inc, their rhetoric notwithstanding.

LDS Inc ignores gay women because it ignores all women. Even their homophobia is sexist. How bad is that?

That is funny. When I was teaching the Kennedy assassination I gave a quiz and one of the questions was what was JFK's wife's name. The answer I got from several was 'Mrs. Kennedy'.Yeah, duh. I'm sure that is the name she was given at her christening.

For some reason, every time I try to post I get the "you're using a forbidden word" response. Anyhoo, all I was trying to say was that while you're certainly correct that women are not treated well by this cult, the wives of U.S. presidents vs. LDS presidents is not a valid analogy
