Female Teacher Fired

Can you believe a church in Watertown, NY, just fired a female teacher because they have adopted an literal interpretation of a quote from the first epistle to Timothy: "I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent."

Mary Lambert was fired as Sunday School teacher on August 9th by the Rev.Timothy LeBouf. He said that women can do anything they like as long as it's outside the church. Is he kidding? Read the whole article.
