First Baptist Church of Watertown and equal rights

The First Baptist Church of Watertown, NY has fired a female Sunday school teacher, citing Timothy 2:11-14, which says, “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.” Mary Lambert had taught Sunday school for First Baptist for 54 years. (Leonard Pitts, Jr., VNC—Ventura County Star - 8/28/06)

Imaging telling this little old senior citizen that has been teaching Sunday school for 54 years that she can't do it anymore when all she wants to do is spread the good word. What would Jesus say?

Reading some of Timothy, I think he had serious maternal issues...
