Stump the Priest: Question: “What does St Paul mean when he says “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law” (1 Corinthians 14:34)? Does this mean that women cannot direct or sing in the choir?” Click here for the Answer.
