Someone FINALLY looked...

Yes indeed another example of the so-damn-far-to-the-right-fundie-wacko-protestant-ignoramus bullshit that women have to put up with..... one day the rule is this....one day its that..

Mary Lambert aged 81 has been teaching Sunday school at First Baptist Church in Watertown, NY for 54 years. She has been dismissed because she is a woman and FBC WNY just now figured it out and has dismissed her using one bible verse as his MAIN excuse...of course his 'Christian charity' prohibits him from detailing publicly all of her OTHER shortcomings..... which means she disagreed with him and was maybe shall we say a tad bit sassy? After all shes 81, and probably outspoken.

After doing a bit of Googleing her AOB disciovered that Mary was teaching an adult class and had been for 11 years. After all this time you would have thought that SOMEONE would have opened their eyes and looked and seen that she was a woman. This bitch is confused.

Lets assume the FBC WNY had a bible...somewhere.....if it was sooooo unbiblical for her to be teaching ADULT MALES why did someone not figure this out sooner? Why did she even start to teach an adult class?????? Did someone just now find 1Timothy and read it??????? Seems so since laBoeuf the pastor got there 2 years ago, I 'll wager that Mary was a real thorn in his 'charitable christian side'. What amazes me is that the congregation obviously got more than it thought...one would have imagined that anyone being considered for a pastoral position would have been grilled (yes I mean grilled) about what his beliefs really were....its seems to me that his beliefs do not coincide with what the congregation THOUGHT they were getting. That's what frosts me...

Lets hear it for the 81 year old lady that got kicked to the curb by 'christian charity'.

This really makes my Orthodox Presbyterian bitch brain boil. While women do not teach adult SS in our church...at least we can figure out what one looks like and you can bet that anyone applying for a pastoral position will be grilled and all of us will know EXACTLY what he believes.

well the bible does portray women as second class citizens and the downfall of humanity. then again it was written thousands of years ago by the precursors to right wing christian coalitionists.

Interesting comment...totally false but interesting.

A good study of the OT legal system will yield the foundation for HOW women are to be treated....

The recording of the mnistreatment of women is meant for example to deter.....read the levitical law in the torah...you may come away with a different view. I DID.

Esther. Ruth. Devorah. Judith... all OT heroines who assisted in saving all mankind... doesn't sound like a second class citizen to me.

The evil which is affixed onto women isn't an OT thing, it's decidedly NT. Jews had existed for thousands of years without the mantle of "original sin." It's just part of the guilt machine which keeps the sheep keep being led to slaughter.

It's comedic and CONVENIENT that after 50+ years of this woman teaching SS, someone finds it objectionable... afterall the bible wasn't written yesterday...
