Laughable Pt. 2

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.

  1. My flesh says to cook her, but my heart is heavy for her. Can you imagine what frame of mind you have to be in to think to do something like that? I mean if she truly loved her pastors, why would she want to hurt them like that?


    Well, I said years back when a friend of mine and I contemplated planting a church... God gives the vision, if its not yours, you don't line up with it... well so sorry. Please find another home. If you want to cause trouble, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    I just feel for that woman. She must be in so much pain to inflict that much pain on others.
