Yea, a woman

“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:11–12

Pastor Douglas Wilson of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, scoffed at the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals here because they invited a woman to speak at their conference. Now fast-forward nine years: The Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches is holding its 2017 CREC Triennial Council this week. In the picture below, a woman — yea, a woman — from MinistrySafe appears to be teaching a group of men and their wives. Presumably this is Kimberlee Norris and I further presume she’s the same attorney with whom Mr. Wilson had this conversation:

But I recently asked an expert on child abuse litigation how many abusers went to jail maintaining their innocence. Her reply amounted to “not many,” because if you are convicted and given a life sentence, you will not receive probation so long as you are maintaining your innocence. So suppose you were wrongly convicted, which can happen, and you were faced with the prospect of admitting what you did not do, in order to be out on probation after ten years, instead of spending the rest of your life in prison. Now what? (Blog & Mablog, 9 Theses on Pastoral Confidentiality and Child Abuse, October 25, 2016, emphasis original)

I presume this because of the timeline and because Doug Wilson throws a begrudging link to MinistrySafe at the end of the post. Either way — lo — a female is teaching the Bible-beating fundamentalists at the CREC big jamboree.
