Mormon Mothers Urged Not to Work

October 07, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Mormon Church President Gordon Hinckley said that, if possible, mothers should forgo full-time jobs in favor of raising their children at home. "It is well-nigh impossible to be a full-time homemaker and a full-time employee," Hinckley said in a sermon directed to the women of the 9.6-million-member Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the faith's 166th Semiannual General Conference in Salt Lake City. Hinckley said he recognized that many women cannot stay at home to raise their children because of economic reasons.
