Palin and Complementarianism


This is a good article and a valid question for complementarians.

In response to:
It is an uncomfortable fact that many of the theologically conservative Christians who have endorsed Palin’s nomination would not be willing to endorse her or any other woman for service as pastor of their church. Women cannot serve as pastors in groups such as the Churches of Christ, the Southern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church in America, most non-denominational Bible churches, and an influential advocacy group called the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW).” - David Gushee

A simple response would be that looking at the Biblical qualifications for elders & deacons in 1 Timothy & Titus - is just that for elders and deacons. Doesn't necessarily follow into government or secular roles.
