SUPPORT WOMEN IN AUTHORITY ROLES IN CHURCHES
Yes, today the Episcopal Church and the United Methodist Church lead in that direction. In fact, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, and Ordinaries of several dioceses, are led by women who only a quarter century ago, were forbidden ordination.
The UMC also have administrative bishops for regions throughout the United States.
Why is there a direct correlation between ultraconservative churches and patriarchalistic retention of an all-male clergy. This is true with the Greek Orthodox or Roman Catholic or the Southern Baptist Convention.
Of course, when queried, it is always about what GOD told them to say...the " God-given dominance of men" and the erection of pedestals for women in order to debase them further.
