Women: Preaching

When Boswell told Johnson one day that he had heard a woman preach that morning at a Quaker's meeting, Johnson replied,' Sir, a woman preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.' We will add that our surprise is all the greater when women of piety mount the pulpit, for they are acting in plain defiance of the command of the Holy Spirit, written by the pen of the apostle Paul.
