The reason for my name on this forum! The way women were treated in the organization was a HUGE part of my leaving....we had elders in our cong who could barely read (really, I mean it - they would stutter and stumble over long words), the ministerial servants were similar, but NO WAY could a sister even consider something like a bible reading on the TMS. I would sit and cringe at meetings, and know I could do a better job....only time I've ever had penis envy LOL!
The way women were treated in judicial matters was another big reason for my fade and then DA. I had been the recipient of several counseling sessions about my lack of wifely subjection...grrrrrrr
