    That’s a shame that a man of God should feel that way.He should read his bible and learn more before he thinks of preaching to others.

    A headcovering and not preaching to men does not mean one sits quietly in the back, hands folded, opinionless.Woman are to teach younger women and their children, they are to run their households and they are to help others in need (Titus 2:3-5).The Proverbs 31 woman is married with family, has her own business and helps the needy.And then there are many women, both Jewish and Christian, who were important in the bible- Anna the prophetess, Dinah and Esther strong, capable women.Paul spoke highly of various Christian women like Phoebe and in his letters greeted both brothers and sister including various women in his letters such as Olympas, Julia and Apphia.None of these women sound oppressed or unable to be active members of their churches (or synagogues).
