Texas Friday April 3 1987 Page 7A 'Stay at home' Mormon leader takes position women belong in home SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Just as the Mormon Church seemed to be accepting the notion of the working mother, church president Ezra Taft Benson surprised many when he told women they should stay at home and care for children Women in and out of the church condemned the declaration, saying the 87-year old Benson, considered a prophet by the faithful, was out of step with the times and had added a burden of guilt to families with finan elal problems "I don t feel just because you re a working woman you can’t be a good mother The two are not incompatible," said Dolly Plumb, a Mormon Sunday School teacher and long time aide to fonder Mayor Ted Wilson •We’re not living in the 19th century anymore Few Mormons believe that many of the 40 percent of the church’s female members who are in the work force will forsake jobs and careers as a result of Benson s position ' It s easier to deal with the guilt than to do without the income, said ( arlfred Broderick a Mormon and director of the Marriage and Family Briefs Therapy Center at the University of Southern California "It is going to be an extremely wrenching experience for Mormon families to implement that teaching in their lives ” In his speech Feb 22, Benson said a woman s primary responsibility is to bear and rear children He also said young couples should not postpone having children because of money "The Lord clearly defined the roles of mothers and fathers in providing and rearing a righteous posterity.” Benson said “Contrary to conventional wisdom, a mother s calling is in the home, not in the marketplace ” The speech reflected a long held doctrine of the 6 2 million member Church of .Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints To support his position. Ben son drew at length from statements by three of his predecessors in eluding Brigham Young s declara Hon that "it is the duty of every righteous man and woman to prepare tabernacles for all the spirits they can ” Bul Benson s remarks came at a time when many observers felt the church which fought hard against passage of the Equal Hights Amend ment during the early lv*Hos was Continued from Paqe 6A Proceeds from the breakfast will U- donated to the i ommumtv lerv ice ( enter Tickets ire $4 and are available from the six member churches First Prop Mant First I nihil Methodist New Braunfels Presbyterian st Paul Lutheran st John s Episcopal and Faith I bited Church of Christ tickets are also available* from board members of the center or at the center Jt»2 F. souths!
