Terry:

Without a doubt, men can have all sorts of reasons why they have wrong and hurtful attitudes about women. And all sorts of churches have these ideas, the LC is not alone in this. Remember, Jimmy Carter was a Baptist for, oh I don't know --- forever --- and he dropped his official membership because of their stances concerning women.

It IS a local church practice, because it is insitutionalized. They preach it from the pulpit. That is not to say that every brother there has those beliefs, but it is to say it is accepted and actually taught there.

Shame on them.
