BEING BORN, DYING, BEING BORN AGAIN . . AND AGAIN: LEARNING TO LOVE OTHERS ON THEIR TERMS Is it possible to sincerely love others and oppress them at the same time? Do people within the LDS culture unknowingly oppress the very people they are trying to save? In this session, I tell the story of my struggle for acceptance as an LDS woman within academia’s feminist paradigm and my coming to love my fellow faculty members and students who reject Mormon ideologies. It also tells my story of discovery that I was not without fault in this long “birthing” process. Ultimately, I believe we must all go through many deaths and births in learning to love and accept outsiders on their own terms.
