Ordain a Lady?

Found this here at the Museum of Idolatry. No wonder the Youtube video closed the comments. I could only get a few seconds into this before turning it off in disgust.


"Don't listen to Saint Paul?" Wouldn't that eliminate almost the entirety of the New Testament?

What sort of man would lead his family spiritually by submitting to the teaching authority of a woman?  What sort of message is he sending his children?  "Oh hey, I'm just a big wuss spiritually.  Let's let a woman lead us, like Israel did during the height of their apostasy with Deborah in the book of Judges..."

I could go on about how disgusting this is, but I think that the Museum of Idolatry rightly cited these verses that sum it up best.

 “Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.” (1 Timothy 2:11–14) 

 “As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.” (1 Corinthians 14:33–35) 

“Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.” (1 Timothy 3:2–7)

  1. Thanks for making me aware of this insanity.

    One of the downsides of keeping focused on traditionalist sites one becomes blissfully unaware that people like this woman and worse, that their ideas have currency among some lost souls.
