Because She's a Woman

Women who claim to love God should do helpful things for others, and they should learn by being quiet and paying attention. They should be silent and not be allowed to teach or to tell men what to do. After all, Adam was created before Eve, and the man Adam wasn't the one who was fooled. It was the woman Eve who was completely fooled and sinned (1 Tim 2.10-14).

This was the basis for firing Mary Lambert, a Sunday School teacher in Watertown, New York. I can hardly believe it but then I guess it shouldn't surprise me. Why do so many Christians give the rest of us a bad name? I just have to shake my head but it makes me angry too.
