The Feminization (& Decline) Of Religion

. . .if females lead congregations, it changes the way you think about God.  This is one (but not the only) reason why traditional Christian churches oppose female clergy.  God is revealed to us in the Bible as a Father.  Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is a man.  Mary, the mother of the Messiah, plays an important symbolic role too.  You lose the male & female aspects of the story, you lose sight of why these things matter theologically. . .
