A Lutheran church in Wisconsin runs a school (unfortunately). The school council has ‘doctrinal issues’ with the fellow they hired as principal — he seems to think that the idea that men have authority over women is invalid. So they had a meeting to fire John Hartwig, and something at the meeting shocked the audience.
Supporters of Hartwig said they were shocked to learn that women church members would not be permitted to speak during a meeting to decide Hartwig’s fate.
I’d be shocked, too. Except that I’d also be shocked by this, which everyone there seemed to take for granted.
Females do not have voting privileges, but are generally allowed to speak at meetings, according to Klaetsch. Sunday’s meeting was the first time in recent history that St. John’s Council President Don Finseth exercised his authority to prevent females from speaking, church members say.
Please, women of St John’s Lutheran Church of Baraboo, Wisconsin, WAKE UP. Leave that awful institution. Why are you continuing to wallow in a poisonous environment that treats you like scum?
