    Women should be able to do whatever they wish on the board. This is not a church.

    AMEN! I'd like to add a little something to that statement. The ladies here should be able to debate and converse here without being IGNORED or INSULTED by male posters. Seems there's been a lot of that going on lately.

    I laughed at the first 2 answers in the poll.

    Like it's possible for a woman to be silent. :smilewinkgrin:

    I'm sorry, I wasn't paying attention. Did you say something, abcgrad? :wavey:

    My picks...

    They can and should participate equally in all forums.
    Many women here generally debate well.
    Women here can do what they dang well please.
    I am a man.
    As someone pointed out.. This is NOT a church, even then I don't believe a woman should be silent. I am sure that there are some men on this forum that would like for the women to be silent.. The men get out debated by some of the women here! :)

    I may not be as book smart as some men, but I can read people like an open book, even if just by their language. A woman's intuition is irreplaceable, and her opinion is just as valide as any man's. Women can take the garbage of this world thrown at us, and STILL keep a smile on our faces. There is only one Man I trust and love with my entire being, He created me, forgived me of my sins, and He is the Only One I will have to answer to when I leave this world, as will all of us.

    love,

    Sopranette

    This forum is a place for all to meet and have a sense of fellowship. I have found their knowledge to be very brilliant from almost all of the women on this board.

    DonnA, I Am Blessed18, abcgrad17, Sopranette, Sue, Amy, Lady Eagle, Saggy Woman and the rest are as knowledgeable in the scripture as many or most of the men here. We would be amiss to not have their insights on this board.

    May God continue to bless and use them in His service.

    Mel

    Would to God we lived in a society where women were raised to be Biblical women.
    Our churches, our children, and our country would be better off!

    Thank you Mel. May God bless you as well!


    And for those that think the women on the BB should stay in the women's forums and avoid debate, just remember how Paul commended Timothy on his knowledge of scripture, which he learned from his mother. :)

    Women debating? LOL! Silly goose. Women can't do that. I have a video to show you what happens when women get these crazy ideas.

    Here it is:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjxY9rZwNGU

    PM for the link as it'll probably get deleted by a man shortly. :laugh:

    See, Salty, we are equal... just different...

    OK, I am going back to the debate forum.. I can't seem to be here without wanting to debate....
