SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Mormon church leader says having women at home remains an essential part of society, and he cautioned against blurring feminine and masculine differences.

D. Todd Christofferson is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Quorum of the Twelve. His speech Saturday came during a two-day church conference in Salt Lake City.

Christofferson said women's "moral force" has kept societies on the righteous track for generations. He criticized feminist thinkers who view "homemaking with outright contempt."

He said overlooking the differences between men and women would lead to losing the complementary gifts of the two genders that work in harmony.

Later Saturday afternoon, a feminist Mormon women's group called Ordain Women plans to ask to be let in an all-male priesthood meeting to highlight what they perceive as gender inequality.
