There was an USA Today article entitled, “Southern Baptists Back Palin Despite View on Women’s Role.” Mike Baker wrote that while the biggest Protestant denomination holds to the belief that a woman may not lead a church or a home, but they do not see anything wrong with Sarah Palin serving as Vice-President (if elected) and possibly as President.
Hmm… I am just trying to put the pieces together.
If the statement by this denomination is true (as well as many other conservative denominations), then a person can conclude, “It is ok to lead men in any context except for the church and home.” Then, I am wondering what the unbelieving world is thinking and how they view the church.
I am not trying to get into a theology discussion here (I am sympathetic to both sides of the discussion), but I guess this is something to consider especially in light of the negative views the world has of the Church.
