Is it wrong to attend church in search of nice women?

Question by Jay Bailey: Is it wrong to attend church in search of nice women?
Im 27 and Im sick of dating women with no morals or self respect. I was raised to respect women but I cant seem to find a girl who respects herself. My folks say I should look in the churches. Im sure thats a good idea but is it right?

Don’t see anything wrong with it unless your looking for a one night stand or hitting on the girls during the service.

Women on Church Search Committee’s?

Question by Danielle H: Women on Church Search Committee’s?
We were setting up a search committee for our church pastor and there were women who people put up to be considered for the search committee. None of them made it to say the least but that’s not why I’m asking this. On the way out of the church my mother-in-law said that if any woman had made it onto the search committee she would have left the church. When I asked why she got really defensive and all she said was that the bible said women weren’t supposed to do it only men.
So where in the bible does it say that and why would it be a problem for a woman to do it?

There is a line in Corinthians about women being silent in church. There used to be a guy who posted it here every 12 minutes, until his meds kicked in, and asked lady ministers why they went against the word of God.

By extension, if someone believes that, he/she may believe women should keep quiet on church committees, too. I found it:

1 Corinthians 14:34-36
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

(Sarcasm and dialect coming up)
Yup. Keep yore mouth shut, make sure them pews get dusted and they’s plenty of coffee for refreshments. Some muffins, too; it will keep your hands busy while us men folk decide ‘portant matters, you empty-headed fluffy little dears.
(End sarcasm and dialect.)

If you want to switch churches, I’d understand. I’d also understand if the women there decided they didn’t want to serve on other committees; let the men write the newsletter, teach the Sunday school and tend to the roses.

This mural of the "four churchwomen" is one of many in El Salvador that honors the martyrs who were killed while peacefully advocating for human rights during El Salvador’s violent Civil War. On December 2, 1980 Sr. Dorothy Kazel and lay missioner Jean Donovan drove their van to the El Salvador airport and picked up Maryknoll Sisters Maura Clarke and Ita Ford. Their van was stopped by members of El Salvador’s National Guard. They were taken to an isolated location, sexually and physically abused and subsequently killed.
Before her death, Maryknoll Sister Ita Ford offered offered these words of reflection on her work in El Salvador when asked why she took the risk of remaining in El Salvador.

"Am I willing to suffer with the people here, the suffering of the powerless, the feeling impotent? Can I say to my neighbors – I have no solutions to this situation; I don’t know the answers, but I will walk with you, search with you, be with you."
