It's an interesting discussion, but I think the Bible is pretty clear. I read McLaren's thoughts and the conservative who he was talking about (which happens to be the president of my seminary). I think the Bible does talk about role's in the home and church, however women that doesn't mean that women can lead in the church. I just means that leadership comes in a different capacity. My mom is a leader and teacher in her church, and she believes strongly in what the Bible teaches about women in pastoral leadership. While I do believe that women make fine leaders (i.e. Margaret Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth, Hillary Clinton), I believe that the Bible is clear on roles within the church. Call me crazy.
