I Cannot Support a Church that Openly Discriminates Against Women

The Seventh-day Adventist Church has never been on the right side of history. We’ve had many opportunities to get things right and to redeem ourselves, to be world leaders and stalwarts of progress, morality and equality, especially in the matter of women’s ordination, but the church seems intent on being wrong.
