Race and Gender Discrimination in the Church

27 Feb

Margaret Mowczko, blogger at Newlife

If only people were accepted for what they are or could be, there would be no problem; but to know that something over which one has no control – namely, one’s biologically inherited appearance [or gender] – is forever a bar to the realization of an ideal, this is what hurts and hurts deeply.

via Race and Gender Discrimination in the Church.

It is so disheartening and contrary to love and compassion that those we love are excluded from leading us to God in worship, through their witness and feminine perspective on the Good News. It is our guess that those resisting women’s ordination might suggest that women’s perspective on the Gospel can be no different to that of men – and if they agreed that there was another perspective it presumably would be deemed inferior.

We guess it will take the retirement of the current President for this matter to be progressed. Meanwhile the Church fades.

    Apparently Zimbabwe won’t get relief until their very very old leader is off the scene, so one man can make a difference. It was the same with the super-leader last century, Hitler. And others, I guess, or some terrible things could not have happened. I was wrong. The question is, “Who is your leader?”

      Certainly the quality of the leader is highly significant in the development of corporations. Maybe that’s why they go after good ones offering big salaries. Perhaps we should offer more than a pastor’s salary to attract quality leadership.
