She believes there is
theological evidence that women held positions of authority, and were ordained
as deacons in the early Christian church.
Therefore, she said, the ordination of women would not
conflict with church tradition.
Wouldn’t loyalty include “submission of will and
intellect” to the teachings of the Holy Father? I wonder if a cancer that
decided to stay and grow within the body instead of leaving it, would it also be
considered loyal? I don’t quite understand how you could have theological
evidence for this doctrine in the early church, if you had evidence wouldn’t it
be historical and ultimately Apostolic Tradition?
