Lutheran Church of Australia - Website against the Ordination of Women
You can visit that website here.
You can find the most extensive website of information on the ordination of women here.
There are some "big guns" involved in this struggle -- Dr. John Kleinig and Dr. Gregory Lockwood to name but two -- but this will be a major battle. The April 2013 General Pastors’ Conference and Convention has placed women’s ordination on the LCA’s agenda during this synodical term. Prior to this, the LCA’s Commission on Theology and Interchurch relations (CTICR) voted in 2000 that Scripture does not prohibit the ordination of women. The parameters of this issue are not simply located in the ordination of women but in the approach to Scripture, the value and weight of unbroken tradition, and the way the LCA relates to other Lutheran bodies throughout the world. Pray for our brothers and sisters down under. Visit the web site. Encourage them in this struggle to overturn modernism and its relativistic approach to Scripture and tradition.
