Dont know if you all heard about this. I would like to get some opinions from former Mormons about the Heavenly Mother thing that the LDS posted the other day. It can be found here:

Mormonism's doctrine of Heavenly Mother is more than a feminist wish — it is a "cherished and distinctive belief," built on LDS scriptures, taught by church authorities, celebrated in song and embraced by the faithful.

But for activists seeking female ordination to the all-male Mormon priesthood, that goal will have to remain a wish, according to the final two LDS Church-approved Gospel Topics essays posted Friday
