FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) A prominent head of the Southern Baptist Convention was removed Wednesday as president of a Texas seminary following allegations of “unbiblical teaching” through sexist and demeaning comments to women who he suggests should tolerate abuse. The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary board of trustees said in a statement that 75-year-old Paige Patterson was dismissed following a 13-hour meeting “to move in the direction of new leadership for the benefit of the future mission of the Seminary.” He made abusive and demeaning comments to women, remarking on a teenage girl’s body, saying female seminarians should work hard to look attractive and that abused women should almost always stay with their husbands.
And women should not look to the bible for help (1 Corinthians 14:34, 1 Timothy 2:11-12, 1 Peter 3:1), or the Quran: “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other… Good women are obedient. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them, forsake them in beds apart; and beat them” Q 4:34
The solution to this institutionalized sexism, misogyny and woman oppression is for women to stop following these man-made, male-dominant cults. Stop going to church, synagogue, temple and mosque!
