QuoteBy background I'm an Anglican, which if you want to put it in a historical perspective, is the protestant church founded by King Henry VIII so that he could get a divorce from Catherine of Aragon.
QuoteHowever, for a whole host of reasons, I'm in the middle of converting to the Orthodox Church. As a result, my views currently are a blend of the two theologies and so there will be the odd foible or two in my thinking.
QuoteAs I might have hinted in the other thread, I'm no fan of St Paul . . .

QuoteThus, from his teaching, the church has wasted (and the Roman Catholics till do waste) the potential of fifty percent of the human race. Admittedly, thats my semi-liberal Anglican background speaking there. Orthodoxy limits female roles too, though for different reasons and than those given by the Roman Catholics. That's my focus at the moment: to get my head around that reasoning, so that I can understand it enough to see if I can live with it or not.
