Just a simple rant this evening

To anybody out there who might ever be in a bishopric, high priests group leadership, or elders quorum presidency, please don’t ever compare percent home teaching rates with percent visiting teaching rates and go on about how the men aren’t being good priesthood holders ’cause they’re doing so much worse than the women of the ward. Beyond the horribleness of the attempt to make gospel teaching into a competition, the two numbers are not comparable, since there’s different guidelines on what constitutes a countable contact for home teaching and visiting teaching—and so trying to compare them makes you, in the eyes of those who actually know what the numbers are based on, look like nothing more than a numbers-obsessed jerk.

You’re welcome.
