With the exception of exactly three female pastors in Saddleback which is in California women cannot be pastors in the southern baptist convention.

The Roman Catholic church and Southern Baptist Convention. Source Robin Diangelo Nice Racism page 20.

Christianity is still very sexist and misogynistic. The longer this injustice goes unchecked the more historical trauma against women. This makes me feel better about being an atheist, thank you Diangelo.

@TheSimmeringFrog Specifically what injustice?

Denying woman priesthood reinforces patriarchy. Giving more voice and power to a male dominated and centered society while denying women their voice and power.

@TheSimmeringFrog Specifically what injustice?

There any many examples of injustice within Christianity. From the forgotten books of Eden

Page 62-63 "can God be black? Would God take the form of a woman?" Let alone all the incest Cain marrying and impregnating his own sister.

A random racist, sexist, misogynistic line in the book.

Not at all. The Catholic church has many women in the clergy who hold many important roles.

@TheSimmeringFrog OK. So what?

Only men can be clergy in the roman catholic church, thus proving my original point. Clergy are bishops, priests, and deacons. This reinforces the male centered patriarchy.

On a side note, Buddism which is popular along the new age movement is also patriarchal. Buddist monks also incite violence against Muslims.

"So why have monks been using hate speech against Muslims and joining mobs that have left dozens dead? " bbc

Ironically, the new age movement is also patriarchal. The new age movement is arguably worse because of its cultural appropriation. Also, if you look at new age spiritual "gurus" they are almost always white men. Basically new ageism is white supremacy, colonization cultural appropriation, and patriarchy all wrapped up in quackery.

Even the new atheist movement is patriarchal.

Yes, new atheism needs constructive criticism, especially from atheists.

From Atheism, to Buddhism, to Catholicism, to new atheism, to the New Age Movement, male centered patriarchy is pan-human, sigh. There are denomination of Christianity that allow woman positions of power, for example the Church of England.

I hope that people from all religions will call for feminism, equity, and the denomination that allow woman positions of power will flourish.

Only bishop, priest, and deacon are considered clergy. Nuns are not part of the clergy.

"All clergy, including deacons, priests, and bishops"
