  1. Wouldn’t it have been wonderful if these two men resigned because they recognized the Universal House of Justice was not being “Just” to have barred women from the institution?

    • I don’t think so. If I have an insight, I should share it, not pick up my toys and refuse to play with those who do not have that insight.

      Let us hope that, this time, some men with native wisdom and substantial experience on a National Spiritual Assembly may be elected to the Universal House of Justice. And pray that they have the strength to remain at their posts even when their efforts are frustrated.
