Dear Mormon Patriarchy

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 9.46.43 AMDear Mormon Patriarchy,

I hereby and absolutely revoke any consents taken or presumed that entitled you to the exercise of authority or dominion over me. I do not consent to your presiding over me. You may not summon me, compel me or interrogate me without my informed consent. Furthermore, I do not agree to your expectation of my obedience or my unquestioning loyalty to you.

That being said, I will sustain you. I am absolutely in favour of your doing a good job and will offer my counsel and support in any effort you expend to extend loving and humble Christian service to your community.

Now, we are free to be equals, and friends with a common interest in Building the Kingdom of God.

 

You are most welcome!  :)

Gina M. Colvin
