Jana Riess: Latter-day Saint men are groomed not to listen to women
Two seemingly unrelated stories appeared last week in my Facebook feed in rapid succession. The first was the unwelcome update that Lavina Fielding Anderson, who was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1993,<a href="https://www.sltrib.com/religion/2019/09/05/writer-excommunicated/"> has been denied rebaptism</a>. Anderson’s excommunication was caused by her shining a light on what she called “ecclesiastical abuse” in the church. It was documented in<a href="https://www.dialoguejournal.com/wp-content/uploads/sbi/articles/Dialogue_V26N01_23.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1vvZGmAvNiIwkJRBkwHeEpwCUXcd-fEmAQHaB6myqualzqUuKpOBwcndc"> a long, well-researched article in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought</a> that chronicled how intellectuals and feminists were being disciplined by Latter-day Saint leaders for various things they wrote and said.
