(RNS) Recently I have had two conversations that reveal the incredible breadth of moral pluralism that exists not just in America but in the Christian population of America.

    And the problem? Paul and his anti-female rhetoric in many of his epistles.

  • Brendt Wayne Waters

    Actually, no. The problem is an anti-female interpretation that Paul never intended. Don’t shift the blame to some guy who’s been dead for nearly 2 millennia.

    “It’s chaos out there.”

    Agreed. And bad results — seriously bad, corrosive, national-level results — are likely to be the outcome for this nation.

    Brendt,

    What is read in many churches during the Sunday services:

    “11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
    12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
    13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
    14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”

    Timothy 2:11-14 KJV

    “Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.” (1 Corinthians 14:34-35)”
