In Los Angeles, a married mother of two was selected as a local Bishop.

Hell... I mean Salt Lake Central... will be buried under the mountains that now surround it when this happens in the LDS church.
(Nevo, Jan 23) And the Melchizedek Priesthood may not have been restored until the summer of 1830, several months after the organization of the Church.

A news story heralding the ordination of women along with the impending ordination of homosexuals in one breath is only going to convince the LDS church that allowing neither is the correct path.

Although if you want to get technical, a gay man can become a bishop in the LDS church. He just can't be acting on his sexual orientation. (My source for that is Silus Grok, the gay LDS blogger at Nine Moons. He covered the matter in a podcast back in March). The homosexual community probably doesn't see that as much of a concession, but as I see it, a gay man still has a better shot of becoming an LDS bishop than a straight woman.

it's interesting to think how women would approach Church finances compared to men.

A recent study found that businesses which have women among their top leadership positions are doing better than businesses that are all male.

I thought that if women made some finance decisions they would build less and spend a little more on charity for people that can't repay them.

Wow, if we had had bishops that well qualified!

Unpaid clergy is false economy.

True, though if his predilection were known, I think his chance of being called to that position is virtually zero.

Silus Grok's stake president (who knows that he's gay) said otherwise.

He could just have a very tolerant SP though.
