COULD I thank the person for the letter on women and the Church (December 19). It was good to see some intelligent answers from Maurice Vessie and Ken Barnes.

From my research, Mr Barnes is 100 per cent correct on the facts.

There is no evidence to say women could preach the Gospel as decreed by God, and remember “God’s Will be Done” whether it was 2000 years ago of 2012.
