What is "fatherhood"? What is "motherhood"? And what is "priesthood"?Volnutt said:Fatherhood is just as high a calling as motherhood. But women have no equivalent when it comes to the priesthood.
Don't dodge my question. You are the one claiming that God is not loving for not creating an egalitarian world. Feel free to explain your answer by explaining what you mean by "egalitarian".How equal do blacks have to be with whites in order to be free?Mor Ephrem said:How egalitarian does God have to be in order to be loving?My argument is that if God could have created an egalitarian world then it follows that He did, or else He is not really a loving God. It's the same essential argument behind abolitionism. Huck Finn's "All right, then I'll go to Hell" immediately springs to mind.
An argument based on an "if". You've convinced me.Because if women are just as fit to be priests as men are, then there is no good reason to deny them the priesthood. "Just because God says so," isn't good enough.
