Why does it matter?

Mdmark, because in the Old AND New Testament of the Bible, it says that women aren't allowed to be pastors in christian churches.

Women SHOULD be able to be ANYTHING they want. Ive had enough of guys taking over EVERYTHING.

I am against religion, but women have the right to be pastors.

Benhos, normally I will agree but the Bible doesn't allow women to take leadership in the church, or any situation really. They aren't even allowed to speak in church.

Within what context? I just wanted to mention that there currently are female pastors and a female bishop within other Christian denominations. Http://www.Womenofpurpose.Co.Uk/ (Catholicism is the main denomination that prohibits females from becoming priests.) The first female bishop for the Church of England was Libby Lane. Http://www.Bbc.Com/news/uk-30510137 I realise the question is, 'Should there be female pastors?' Given that the times are changing it seems to be the more favorable position.

I'm not Christian, and I don't support this. But according to their Bible, women aren't allowed to hold the position of bishop or pastor, so I'm assuming that the women who subscribe to this religion understand this section of it.

They already are in a lot of denominations because women are supposed to have equal rights The Bible actually doesnt prohibit it not that that makes a difference to me i still think yes. There is a word in the original scriptures that can be translated to both "servant" and "minister". The sexist society that translated this into English wanted to keep women under control so in the case if men they chose "minister" and in the case of women it was changed to "servant" Also the passage telling women to learn in silence is a mistranslation. A more accurate translation is learn "with dilligence or patience" briantheliberal: What is wrong with you im dissapointed. I thought you were ine of the forward thinkers on this site.

If you read the bible, then you would know that it is against church doctrine as well as the word of God, for women to minister over men. I'm not sexist, I'm just stating the biblical truth.
