Some of you sent me the most kind, supportive emails today. You expressed your opinions about what I wrote last night, and frankly, you were 142 different kinds of awesome!!
Then there were the people who decided that I was 1) ignorant and 2) that they REALLY knew me. To you I say openly, you don't know doodly-squat, and I think it would be in your best interest to not read anymore.
I don't hate women pastors; I'm not against women pastors. I'm not some anti-feminist who think suffrage was in vain and that we all need to be in submission to Men. For anyone to have interpreted that is so beyond ridiculous, I can't help but be left speechless. My doubts are in ordination, and that's MY opinion. Also, we are talking about the particular denomination I attend, not any others. And FYI, I have family on the Council of the 18. I'm not nearly as stupid as you think.
If you happen to have women pastors in your life or your family, that's great. I'm not questioning anyone's calling, I'm questioning a title.
Also, I don't hate counselors, I don't think they're all bad. Promise!! Sometimes one Bad Apple can intentionally ruin your afternoon.
If that is your life's work and your passion, kudos to you!
Lastly, my title yesterday was called VENT, not "I'M TALKING TO YOU PERSONALLY SO GET YOUR BRIEFS IN A BUNCH". Unclench.
Amanda @ Teasingly Diverse has a poll going for Team Noel or Team Ben. TEAM NOEL ALL THE WAY!!!
