Jimmy Carter Condemns All Male Priesthood

Not going to excerpt it. Go here if you really must read his drivel.

Does anyone take this clown seriously?

Jimmy must be senile. It's not a legalistic question of women's rights -- although the plethora of women lawyers in this country want
desperately to make it one -- it's a matter of holding fast to Holy Tradition, something Protestants have little or no use for.

I don't listen to anyone criticize the priesthood if they belong to a church that doesn't even have one.

Why is he commenting on this? He's Baptist. Baptists do not believe in ordained priests, male or female.

Honestly, who cares? I'm puzzled why you thought this was blog-worthy.

Mega ditto's to all comments above.

Archer,

While Baptists do not believe in a sacramental priesthood, they do very much believe in the practice of ordination for the ministry. For a raised Baptist this might create a very confusing situation, as they do not believe in sacraments at all but ordinances, and then only two ordinances (Communion and Baptism), yet still refer to the creation of a minister as "Ordination". The SBC, of which Carter used to be a member, opposes the ordination of women, whether to a sacramentally defined priesthood or as "pastor". I'm more than willing to take Baptists (as someone raised Southern Baptist) to task for many things, but their views on "ordination" (how this is possible when ministry is not an "ordinance" I have never figured out) are where they should be.

Who? Billy Carter's brother? Thought so. Anyone take him seriously? Why this one then?
