    My husband served in a bishopric. He was tasked, when it came to performed baptisms, with the job of verifying that two Melchisedek Priesthood holders and temple worthy men were the baptismal witnesses, the implied doctrine being that the duty of a Melchisedek Priesthood holder needed to be acting as a witness. Same with the temple ordinances. This has been the protocol for years. I get confused when “doctrine” and “procedure” are used interchangeably, and feel gaslighted when things get spun to reflect a procedure, so it can be suddenly changed when social pressure is applied. If it wasn’t doctrinal to begin with, then why on earth would God disallow women to be a part of baptisms and temple ordinances? If we see examples in scriptures about women involvement (as apostles, ministers, leaders and witnesses), then why hasn’t policy and procedure been scriptural? What does that say about whom we choose to follow? If God is the same, yesterday, today and forever, why is he painted as changing his mind so much? Maybe this says more about people, than it does about God, and maybe we aren’t asking the right questions. What may seem at first like it’s a good thing, is hollow. We have placed way too much faith and trust in people, and not enough in God.

      You ask some excellent questions (the most critical one being “…maybe we aren’t asking the right questions(?)”). I will be interested in knowing what answers you come up with!
