Responding to Jeannie Babb Taylor and her Baptist drop-out vs. Mormon cult priest" column:
Mormons teach that women can only be saved through their husbands, not through faith in Christ is an inaccurate statement. The accurate statement would read Mormons teach that an individual is saved through their faith in Christ."
They also teach that salvation is gradated, and once you have faith in Christ, reaching the highest level of salvation requires (in addition to faith and obedience) that a couple be married. A man cannot achieve the highest level of salvation without his wife. A woman cannot achieve the highest level of salvation without her husband. Salvation is as a couple, not with one gender piggy-backing on the merits of another.
Ms. Taylors article contains several other inaccuracies about LDS doctrine, though the error correct above was the most skewed.
