The whole issue of the "Philadelphia Eleven" women ordained as Episcopal priests last year came into the headlines this month when Rev. William A. Wendt was pronounced guilty by a church court for disobeying Bishop J.M. Allin who instructed him not to allow Rev. Alison Cheek toparticipate in the Eucharist. The Bishop felt that the necessary decision should be made on the convention level. (The issue was not settled in the General Convention in 1973.) Another ecclesiastical trial of Peter Beebe, rector of Christ Church in Oberlin, Ohio, is still in progress over his decision to allow Rev. Alison Cheek and Rev. Carter Heyward to celebrate communion. PRO , CON PAUL KING JEWETT (author,Man as Male & Female) ELISABETH ELLIOT (author, Furnace of the Lord) "I feel that instead of trying to limit ths woman in her freedom as a ohlld or God by denying her calling to the ainlstry on such grounds as man's 'erotic' weakness, men ought to redeem the man/rfonan relationship in the Church by repenting of their sin. Also, it Is '■eld that* to ordain a woman to holy order* would be analogous to assigning her the role of husband and fithe/ in the family, a role that properly belongs to the man. So far as the nature of the ministerial office bears on the question of women's ordination, the ultimate issue proves to be her relationship of subordination to the man. " DONALD COGGAN - archbishop of Canterbury "My own belief is that crrination of women to the priesthood will come. My own personal view is, it should come. When, I don't know. And how, 1 don't know." VIRGINIA RAMEY MOLLCiKOT? - English processor, The William Rsterser. Co-llege of New Jersey "Those who elisve that God is omnipresent, not only transcendent but also imminent (I ::or 3:15) and those who acoept the statement Genesis 1j?7 that God created both man and woman in his image must in all consistence support the immediate ordination of women. Because genuine human eQuality is rooted in God's omnipreaano* end immenance, both racism >ind sexism are practical denials of Go-""s presence. M5ubJeotion of wives to husband as the Church is subjeot to Christ is an i:nport?.nt aspect of the Church's message. Ths Church cannot, therefore, negate this truth that it teaJhes by ordaining womsn to the cfice of minister sf Wc-ld Proclainer. The commands of GcJ in Scripture clearly delineate t>-e strutures of th- Church, and relationship between its members ind leaders, and the disciplined use of gifts for its edification. We cannot have it both ways. The Church must ohoose between the ordination and the subordination of women. Which does God command? If subordination is the scmnand sf Gad, ordination is excluded. It is a contradiction*!" RUTH GRAHAM - wife of evangelist Billy Graham "I personally am 'agin it.' For one thing, I do not feel that we have that much of a shortage of men. For ancher thing, I believe that it basically goes against the principles of Sorlpture. Bible teachers? YesJ Sunday-school teachers? Yes J Prayer-group leaders? YesJ But clerjyvwomen? I have serious reservations. I think if you study you will find that the finest cooks in the world are men; the finest couturiers, by and larce, are ren; the finest musicians are men} the greatest politician.* are t-en; most of our erect atheletes a re men. You name It, men are superior in ill but two areas: wonen make the best wives nnd women —ks the best mothersJ "
