I agree wholeheartedly with your editorial of May 23 entitled "Backward Baptists." My concern is that you and other rationally minded persons may assume that this ridiculous recommendation to disallow women pastors reflects the thinking of all Baptists.
Many of us are embarrassed and incredulous over the current and past prejudicial proclamations of the Southern Baptist leadership. Jesus was and is the penultimate advocate of women as illustrated by his earthly ministry and teachings. His message of unconditional love and acceptance is meant for all persons. No denominational or church decree can change that.
