Regardless of how many times it is said, the claim that Jesus only had male disciples does not justify a prohibition against women being clergy. The world-wide anger of women is going to hit the Catholic and conservative Protestant churches smack between the eyes.
Besides the grievance of woman being frozen out of the clergy in some branches of Christianity, there is the over arching skepticism women face in allegations of rape. In the several recent celebrity rape allegations it took several, not just one or two, allegations to bring down powerful men.
Whether the issue of the day is gay marriage, abortion rights or women behind the pulpit, when you see a press event to discuss the conservative take on an issue it is line of white men doing the talking. When there is an event at the White House to pray for Trump it is all men except the photogenic prosperity gospel preacher Paula White. Nearly all the women in Trumps female line up are blonds so she made the cut.
The news today is the resignation of Rev. Paige Patterson, head of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. His public remarks some years back, and restated again recently, was that women should not divorce a husband who is physically abusive. He said women should live separately but not divorce. His resignation was directly the result of women expressing outrage a male preacher would give such advice to women.
Bar the church doors. The women are coming.
