Sunday School Teacher Dumped for Being Female

"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. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became sinner."-- Scripture (1 Timothy 2:11-14) quoted in a letter to 81-year-old Mary Lambert, who was booted from her adult Sunday school position after 54 years because she's a woman.

LSB: I realize that every religion has their fanatics and those that give their religion a black eye, but Dobson, Fallwell, Phelps, Terry, the pastor of this church and MANY other holier-than-thou lunatics give Christianity a bad rep and make the religion easy prey for those who would paint all Christians with the same broad strokes. This kind of un-Christ-like behavior is what leads many of us to abandon the church, though not our faith.
