Here is the pastor's response to the elderly lady removed from teaching Sunday School: First Baptist Church, Watertown, NY: Pastor's Message
I guess the laughability factor goes back to her court. She knew exactly which button to push to get people fired up and put the pastor on the hot seat! She used the restraints placed on the church by the law to twist accusations against the church and the pastor.
This has gone from laughable to sad!
I think women have every right to minister from a leadership stand point in the church, so I don't agree with the church in that regard. But I do believe they have the right to act in accordance with their theological beliefs. I think this action on the woman's part, though legally not slanderous, is slanderous nonetheless.
