BYU Religion professor Rodney Turner, in a speech during a six-stake fireside, quotes a poem: "Women are doormats and have been / The years those mats applaud,- / They keep their men from going in / With muddy feet to God.'" then comments, "I am afraid that is only too true, A man needs that kind of support so that he can go back home without muddy feet. A help meet to God, fulfilling the procreative power that you have; a sustainer of your husband; a homemaker; a rearer of children; and a husband-prodder-these are just a few things you can begin with." The speech, "Woman and the Priesthood" is published as a pamphlet by BYU.
