If only the author had the background stories behind our homogeneous results. Hard to argue with the numbers though.

Welfare square tours for journalists reminds me of the North Korean propaganda factory tours quite a bit, except welfare square actually does produce some stuff.

Interesting. I liked the point about how children do generally do better when raised by a mom and dad, and also community volunteers helping in charity - with practical needs like the bishop's storehouse.

Some things I like about Mormonism is the practicality and everyone pitching in to help out.

We cannot overlook the fact the Mormonism does a few things surprisingly well. For all the concern over the effects of patriarchy, this is one area that the patriarchy seems to work for the group as a whole (Kate Kelly notwithstanding).

Yeah, I agree. Even though I personally believe that each of us have healing abilities (not just men), I also realize that priesthood probably motivates men to serve more than they might otherwise. And that's a good thing!
