    • No,  because Jesus chose men to be the leaders of Church.
      • As we  know, Jesus had 12 disicples who were MEN.
        • Although, Jesus had 60 women following him, they were lower than the men, hence the reason why women can have lower positions of the church, like bishop or nuns.
    • St Paul wrote in Timothy 2:11-12 ... "I do not allow them to teach or to have authority over men, they must keep quiet. For Adam, was created first then Eve."
      • This emphasis  massively on why women should not be priests.
      • Women shouldn't be priests, as they need to keep themselves low and allow men to take control and power as it says clearly in the Bible
    • Some may argue, society is developing and therefore religion, so women should become priests, BUT we can't exaclty change relgion and the words of God.
      • Do you want us to go against God's words ?
      • It's NOT a decision of men, it is a decision of God
    • Yes, women and men should be equal but they are different when it comes to characterstics and personality.
      • Men and women are different emotionally, physically and mentally, hence the reason why men are give more authority and higher status compared to women
