  •  You stuck with that church after they hired (0+ / 0-)

    That pastor? That would have led to my resignation as soon as the new hire made his disdain for half his congregation clear.

    •  I was off at college when he came into the picture (0+ / 0-)

      And I'd been taught not to expect much better - this was a proper SBC church, where teaching a co-ed class past middle school was done by men or couples unless you were 1) the pastor's wife or 2) willing to take a majority-women class at the odd meeting time half the church doesn't know exists. That's it.

      Even had a few teaching teams where the woman did the researching during the week and the man taught and took the credit Sunday morning. And then there was the light verbal spousal abuse with one couple in the youth department.

      And that's leaving out the date rape sermon by Dear Sisters dude. Who normally spoke for the Promise Keepers, so heaven only knows what some wives and daughters had to deal with once the men of the house got back from the 'nice godly Christian event'...

      If you're used to being treated like that and seeing other women treated like that on church grounds, it can take something BIG to make you realize That's Not Right.

      Prayers and best wishes to those in Boston, in Texas, and for this week to be over without anything else happening.
