Normally, I like Mormon Messages. But this week?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s really irked me.
Now, don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t get me wrong; I think the message of Elder Oaks is great and timely. I think he has some sound advice.
What I don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t like is how the film creators portrayed the first couple. Why is it that in church films, it is never the wife who is the one who doesn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t go to church? It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s always the man. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s always the man who is the cause of divorce (or marital problems).
This really bothers me. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s sexist for one thing, and it perpetuates the myth that women are the spiritual ones and men are the carnal ones.
Why can’t we just stop this nonsense?
