I think Tami Jo Nix was having a dull day and decided to stir up a little excitement. Her column of Oct. 13 needs a response.
My church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormon) does not now and never has required women to become mothers. Nor does the Catholic Church (to the best of my knowledge.)
Tami Jo needs to print a retraction.
Ordinarily, I like her column, although it makes me sad when she talks about her dislike of children. I wonder why she feels this way.
If you want to find out more about our church ask the missionaries.
