The perfect unity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost is offered to the Nephites as a perfect example of the unity they ought to have with each other in 3 Nephi 11. We will never experience unity in that perfection in mortality, but the closest we can come is in the holiest of relationships – the relationship of a husband and wife who have chosen to seal themselves together for eternity.
Feminism turns wives against their husbands. It declares a silent but pitched battle in which the spouse is automatically part of the enemy territory. It takes “what God hath put together” and divides it asunder into warring factions.
Zion is built first in the individual and in the couple according to modern leaders. Zion cannot be built as a city if it cannot exist in the hearts of the people and it cannot be built in the hearts of the people if it cannot even exist in the most basic building block of Zion – the unity of husband and wife. One cannot have the “one mind, one heart, dwelling in righteousness” of Zion in a marriage if the wife is holding to pride and animosity against men generally.
Joseph Smith, when detecting the prophesies and spiritual experiences of another religious group as coming from the adversary used this as one of his keys to detect them:
“Those women would speak in the midst of a meeting, and rebuke Mr. Irving or any of the church. Now the Scripture positively says, ‘Thou shalt not rebuke an Elder, but entreat him as a father;’ not only this, but they frequently accused the brethren, thus placing themselves in the seat of Satan, who is emphatically called ‘the accuser of the brethren.’ “
As a group, the feminists in the church are certainly “the accusers of the brethren”.
Feminism is certainly part of the church of the devil. It is often the basis of derision of the church. It is often used to turn otherwise faithful sisters into critics of church leaders. It leads otherwise faithful sisters to turn to a spirit of calling coveting. It divides wives from husbands, replacing the potential for divine unity with the hollow substitute of a mutually unsatisfying, uneasy truce.
