Columnist Robert Kirby On The Ordain Women Movement = Quote Of The Day

I love Robert Kirby, columnist for The Salt Lake Tribune.  He has that great gift of wit found in the writings of Erma Bombeck and Mark Twain; he can say succinctly with humor little bits of profound wisdom.
Last week he commented on the uproar caused this autumn by women (and some men!) who feel that it's time that women in the LDS Church should stop being forced to take figurative seats at the back of the bus and be allowed equal church rights alongside men.  I absolutely loved how he summed up the whole argument:

"Those opposed to women being ordained are probably more worried about their own ability to cope with change rather than doctrinal appropriateness."
