Paige Patterson on women…

“I think everybody should own at least one,” Patterson quipped when asked about women.

He noted that more than 200 of Southeastern Seminary’s approximately 1500 students are women. They are training to be missionaries, children’s ministers and counselors — but not ordained preachers.

“The vast majority of Southern Baptist women have no desire to be in the pulpit,” said Patterson, citing the admonition in 1 Timothy 2:12 that women not be permitted to teach or have authority over a man.
