Nicely timed, Bebe, since my wife is scheduled to preach a sermon in two weeks (filling in for our pastor when she’s out). 😁

I had a coworker once who explained his church did not allow women in any positions of authority, spiritual or otherwise, and cited 1 Timothy as the guidance from St. Paul and, therefore, not up for discussion. I replied, “Yeah, well, Paul was a misogynistic asshole.” And the conversation went downhill from there. (As an agnostic, I do not always show reverence to Paul. Mostly because he was a misogynistic asshole.)
