Actually, I quite like the idea of women officiating in church, tho my reasoning is, of course, subversive.

As mayor of New York, Rudy Gulliani ordered all graffiti removed from the subways. He argued that allowing the law to be broken in that “small” way was an implicit approval of larger criminal activity. And it sort of worked. The overall crime rate dropped.

Lady church officers work in much the same way. They are a blatant defiance of Biblical rules, and so unconsciously encourage the breaking of other such rules.

Chip chip chip……..

Just perusing a number of online articles about changes made to the Bible over the centuries. Worth some surfing, if you’re interested. Many acknowledge that upwards of 30,000 changes have been made for various reasons. My favorite, tho, has to be the absolutely straight faced assertion that NO changes have ever been made.

It defies belief (no pun intended) to imagine that the Bible was not heavily edited and adulterated over many centuries. "The word of God" isn't going to survive unchanged when so many stand to benefit from... adjusting the content, shall we say.

One of the biggest reasons I gave up on organized religion. Their foundational text is an amalgam of myths distorted to suit the politics and cultural agenda of countless hucksters and conmen.
