This is a link to an article by from a secular news source.
The emphasis on the family as the central organizing structure in society is highly valued outside the US, Europe and the western countries. Those who have lived and worked in Latin America, SE Asia, and Africa have experienced this. Populations there. Programs coming from the 'West' are increasingly viewed with suspicion for this reason. So exchanges that are family affirming are much more readily embraced.
@Myrna, This is an article excerpted from another site and not written by a Latter-day Saint. It is an outside perspective and that means they won't always be perfect in their terminology.
Why oh why does the nickname "mormon" appear over and over in this article? Members have been asked by President to speak of our Church using its correct name, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Do you not follow the Prophet?
