The Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) should allow women to be ordained. “The Book of Mormon states, ‘black and white, bond and free, male and female; … all are alike unto God’ (2 Nephi 26:33). This is the Church’s official teaching.” Based on their own philosophy, people of both genders should be allowed to speak, teach and pray in local congregations.
Yes, the Mormon church needs to allow women to be ordained. If they want to attract and keep younger members, they are going to have to take this step to move into the modern world. The younger generation will not go along with the "it"s always been this way" ideology. The Mormons need to start moving women into places that are male dominated. The world is changing.
Religious leadership roles should be reserved for men as men are the leaders in the natural order of creation. A woman's role is to support, not to lead. Ordaining women in the Church of Latter Day Saints would place a woman in a role in which she is not naturally created to function.
No, the LDS church does not need to ordain women. Although gender equality is very important, no religion should be forced to practice their religion in a way that does not fit their beliefs. As long as they are not harming anyone or taking away basic human rights or dignity, they should be left alone.
