    Oh, dear. She's not going to be able to chisel a dent in over 500 years of cultural tradition. I've taught children's choirs for about 20 years at church. At a certain age, I can't tell the difference in girl and boy voices, but whatever.

    Her mother should have known not to make a case of this.

    I do hope they have another choir, mixed or girl's, that she can join. For me, that would be the issue.

    It is an old tradition to have choirs of boys whose voices have not changed. It seems that boys and men cannot have any institutions and organizations without the distaff. What a pity!

    We are told that women are better than men and that women will uplift things. However, the facts have not upheld that opinion. Instead we have constant political agitation from women to make sure that boys and men never have a minute to themselves. We have built an expensive welfare state with heavy debt in order to force women to take menial jobs in the workplace and we have told them that doing some menial job somewhere is better than being a housewife. It probably has made things worse because American children are neglected because of this alliance of big government and big business to create a purely materialistic culture, which is supported by women in their greed.

    Women are not the same as men. They are usually considered more carnal than men and therefore less spiritual and therefore unfit to be preachers.

    I've read a lot of things on BB over the past 17 years that are cruel and untrue about women - and it's my opinion that's why there are very few women here like there once was, but I'll have to say that this does take the cake.

    But then again, since I'm carnal and not as spiritual as you simply because of my DNA and I'm full of greed - you 'll probably think badly of me for saying so.

    Women are not any better than men and they are not allowed to preach is my context. It all goes back to Eve. Sorry for any ambiguity in my previous post. It is boys who are under attack in American culture and we constantly hear that women will bring a civilizing force without any evidence having been offered. Look at Democrat women such as Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, AOC, Omar, and Elizabeth Warren and tell me how they are any better than male politicians.

    Consider the plight of boys. Welfare has destroyed the family and many boys are growing up without fathers. Now women have insisted that there be nothing left in society that is for men only even if it is just a boys choir. The home has been emptied out by high taxes and big corporations calling for more and more cheap labor, forcing women into the workplace, not exactly a pleasant place and not improved one bit by the presence of women but only giving men more power as they now hold economic power. The Virgin Mary lamented the low-estate of women in her Magnificat:

    Luke 1:46-55 (KJV) And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy [is] his name. And his mercy [is] on them that fear him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from [their] seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of [his] mercy; As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

    I don't see that destroying male institutions has helped women or men.

    Here is a video that 1791 published on YouTube about the plight of women from Gilbert K. Chesterton, RCC theologian in England in the last century:

    You know, ...I'm as outspoken as anyone against the gender neutral advocates' attacks against masculinity, ...but seriously dude!? "Ambiguity"??? There is really no other way to interpret what you said than as being your judgment that women are an inferior gender. I don't know if there is anything in the rules specifically about this kind of talk, but seems to me there should be...

    It's breathtakingly insensitive and flat out wrong.

    He seems to be making his case for being included in this month's "Fundies Say the Darndest Things" compilation.

    A private organization should be able to make any rules they so desire.

    Hey as Archie Bunker said:

    In the Bible it says, "God made man in His own image." He made women after, from a rib, a cheaper cut.​

    :)

    Hey don’t blame Archie, he was born a Yankee (or was it Met)?

    Did y'all even read the article?

    It's a state institution.

    Women preaching is not the topic of the OP. The OP is about a boys choir in Europe not accepting a girl member.

    And besides, your reasons for women not preaching are not Biblical, true, nor valid.

    Women are no more carnal than men.
    Women are not more spiritual or less spiritual than men.
    Women are not driven by greed any more or less than men.

    So you think that it was just Jewish culture that called for a male priesthood? Women have been the ones destroying male groups while maintaining their own all female institutions. Boys are in trouble in this culture and girls are not.

    It has been a boys' choir for 5 1/2 centuries and now people are saying it is bigoted. Is it bigotry when women's sports complains about men who say that the are women competing against them and winning all the time?

    Women own 3/4ths of the wealth, live longer, are the majority in universities--is this becoming a matriarchy? People say that it is better for a woman to work in some store or factory or restaurant and pay taxes than to stay home or be married. We have thousands of women preachers. When the financial collapse arrives, maybe women will realize that big government will not finance their old age but meanwhile expect people to continue to wreck Western culture, Christian or not.

    :Laugh. Women are also our mothers, our wives, our partners in life, our confidants, our lovers, teachers, sisters, doctors, nurses, grandmothers blah blah. Life would be a very dull place without their existence
