First, if determinism is the case, the will is not free.
I recently came across one of the arguments against granting women suffrage, written by Sentator J. Sanford of the Democratic Caucus.
Reading through it, I thought it would be fun to change some of the words. The language is a little awkward and archaic, but so is the argument.
It is a privilege that may or may not be granted. Politics is no place for a women consequently the privilege should not be granted to her. Priesthood is not a right. It is a privilege that may or may not be granted, even to men: Church leadership is no place for a woman, consequently the privilege should not be granted to her.
She can do little good by gadding the streets and neglecting her children.
Let her teach her daughters that modesty, patience, and gentleness are the charms of a women. The mothers of this country can shape the destinies of the nation by keeping in their places and attending to those duties that God Almighty intended for them.
The kindly, gentle influence of the mother in the home and the dignified influence of the teacher in the school will far outweigh all the influence of all the mannish female politicians on earth.
She can do little good by going to priesthood meetings and councils and neglecting her children. Let her teach her daughters that modesty, patience, and gentleness are the charms of women. Women can shape the destinies of the children of God by keeping in their places and attending to those duties that God Almighty intended for them.
The courageous, chivalrous, and manly men and the womanly women, the real mothers and home builders of the country, are opposed to this innovation in American political life. There was a bill the Sanford bill before the last legislature which proposed to leave the equal suffrage question to women to decide first before the men should vote on it.
This bill was defeated by the suffragettes because they knew that the women would vote down the amendment by a vote of ten to one. The courageous, chivalrous, and manly elders and the womanly women, the real mothers and home builders of Zion, are opposed to this change in Church policy. The men are able to run the government and take care of the women.
Do women have to vote in order to receive the protection of man? Why, men have gone to war, endured every privation and death itself in defense of woman. To man, woman is the dearest creature on earth, and there is no extreme to which he would not go for his mother or sister. By keeping woman in her exalted position man can be induced to do more for her than he could by having her mix up in affairs that will cause him to lose respect and regard for her.
Woman does not have to vote to secure her rights. Man will go to any extreme to protect and elevate her now. As long as woman is woman and keeps her place she will get more protection and more consideration than man gets.
When she abdicates her throne she throws down the scepter of her power and loses her influence. The men are able to run the Church and take care of the women. Do women have to give blessings to receive the blessings from men? Why, men have blessed and healed women and children, and spent countless hours officiating for ordinances that are essential to exaltation in order to preserve their families.
By keeping woman in her exalted position man can be induced to do more for her than he could by having her called to positions that take her out of the home and cause her husband and family to lose respect for her.argument - a discussion in which reasons are advanced for and against some proposition or proposal; "the argument over foreign aid goes on and on" argumentation, debate give-and-take, discussion, word - an exchange of views on some topic; "we had a good discussion"; "we had a word or two about it".
