Following Sacrament meting yesterday, the bishopric had the young women hand out Lindor chocolates to all the adult males in our ward. I refused mine. I refused my Dad’s cookie last year as well.
Why, you may ask. Because I am protesting.
It is my strongly held belief that it should not be the ward’s responsibility to ensure dads are honoured on Father’s Day (or, for that matter, mums are honoured on Mother’s Day). I believe that it should be children (or spouses even) who honour the fathers/mothers in their family.
For similar reasons I do not think Sacrament meeting talks on Mother’s Day should exclusively be about mothers.
This is probably one of the many reasons I would never be considered for a vacancy in a bishopric. I’d have a mutiny on my hands for sure.
