Are you worthy? A Campaign against LDS Women
Are you worthy?
It is a question that is on a billboard. These billboards are in Idaho, and were paid for by a new Ministry called "Truth in Love Ministry". Their sole focus is to attract "oppressed women of the LDS Faith who feel they are failing to meet the high standards of perfection".
A former latter-day saint has a wordpress blog called Latter-day Saint Woman. She challenges the claims of Mormon doctrine, church instruction, and attempts to explain and expose how women are mistreated within the LDS Faith.
Mark Cares, founder of Truth in Love Ministries, also maintains two blogs - one for the "campaign" and the other regarding how Mormonism is false.
What then is the problem here? The insinuation that Latter-day Saint women are being oppressed. Having a sense of incompleteness, suffering depression, not able to keep up with the demands of life and expectations.
In fact, there are two websites focused on this one single purpose: His Healing Now and Truth in Love Ministries. The first website has stories of "oppressed women of the LDS Faith" that have come out and embraced Christianity by befriending compassionate Christian women. While there is nothing wrong with interfaith dialogue and exchanges, the motivation behind this campaign is very deceptive.
It placates to those LDS women who are in an vulnerable emotional state. Something that seems to be a new tactic by these types of ministries. They also (according to Mark Cares) are concluding that Mormon Men are becoming "Angry" at their exposing the religious bondage and oppression of their wives, mother's and daughters.
I bring this up here because I have noticed that there is many postings by women who are struggling with emotional concerns, infidelity, questioning of their faith, etc.
This is for dialogue purposes here, but what are your thoughts? If you are an lds woman and would like to post an article to answer the question Are You Worthy? from a Latter-day Saint woman's perspective, I am opening up a submission call for this.
