{LDSL Blog} Mormon Republicans vs. Mormon Democrats | LDS | Scoop.it

How I'm working for change inside my church

How I'm working for change inside my church | LDS | Scoop.it
How do we respect someone's religious beliefs, while also holding religion accountable for the damage those beliefs may cause? Chelsea Shields has a bold answer to this question. She was raised in the orthodox Mormon tradition, and she spent the early part of her life watching women be excluded from positions of importance within the LDS Church. Now, this anthropologist, activist and TED Fellow is working to reform her church's institutionalized gender inequality. "Religions can liberate or subjugate, they can empower or exploit, they can comfort or destroy," she says. "What is taught on the Sabbath leaks into our politics, our health policy, violence around the world."

Why It Still Matters

Why It Still Matters | LDS | Scoop.it
Henry Ford is often quoted as saying, “History is bunk.” That’s not quite accurate. What he actually told the Chicago . . . .
diane gusa's insight:

Democracy advances the forces of mass culture. Those same forces tend to narrow the aims of life from beauty, heroic virtue, and transcendent meaning to the pursuits of work, material consumption and entertainment. Human life settles into “a one-dimensional materialism and [a diminished moral] existence” that undermine human dignity and eventually tend to a withering of the spirit.

The Black Presence in the Bible: Uncovering the Hidden Ones

The Black Presence in the Bible: Uncovering the Hidden Ones | LDS | Scoop.it
The Bible is a multicultural book. This statement may sound controversial but archeology, history, and the text prove it to be true.
diane gusa's insight:
The Roman Catacombs show biblical scenes painted by first- and second-century persecuted Christians, and their paintings clearly show people of color. What would Roman Christians gain from painting these characters black? What did these early Christians know and accept that seems unbelievable today?
