It's astounding that a few Mormon women mistakenly clamor for the priesthood ("Mormons launch online push to ordain women to the priesthood," Tribune, April 3). The priesthood is not a title of prideful honor.
Doctrine and Covenants 121:34-40 clearly teaches that someone seeking the priesthood, aspiring to the "honors of men," can't possess the rights of the priesthood. Honor in the priesthood only comes as the ordained person is selflessly serving others!
Selflessly serving others is already a description of most women. However, it does not describe most men. Maybe one of the essential attributes men can learn from properly exercising their priesthood is to gain what most women already have.
