In 2000, they passed rules to prevent women from serving as pastor.
This has put them out of step with most Protestant denominations.
She was an enthusiastic businesswoman with a sexy husband of her own – a woman of good taste who described the potential partner she had chosen for me as smart (check one important criteria off my list), athletic (and another), and a business owner with a full head of hair (hair – definitely one of my most important criteria).
After her description of my perfect man, I thought I should dust off my best dating garb and set aside my dater’s doubt to see what this guy might have to offer.
A good man is hard to find, and a true Southern gentleman may be even harder to find. I am led to believe one of three theories about the perfect southern gentleman. He is an amalgam created by the Southern woman kind of like the game junior high girls play when they create the perfect guy with the head of Ryan Gosling, the body of Channing Tatum, and the personality of Matthew Mc Conaughey.3.
He existed generations ago, but like the dinosaurs, he is no more; or, perhaps, he never really existed to begin with and is a mythological creature like the loch ness monster or a unicorn.2.
Channing Tatum is currently promoting his upcoming movie "Logan Lucky" with a grassroots campaign, traveling from town to town meeting real Americans, swimming in rivers, riding dirt bikes, and driving 18 wheelers.

I arrive at the local sports bar one Saturday right on time. He is very attractive, although a little short for my 5’10” frame, but overall, all signs point to being off to a good start. I toss in a story about my rustic Southern upbringing and get a few laughs. As the night wears on, we discover a mutual interest in travel and running.The changes approved on June 9 were a culmination of 20 years of conservative leanings within the Nashville-based church.The text of the altered 18th Article of the Baptist Faith and Message reads: Overwhelmingly rejected were two other amendments that called upon husbands and wives to submit to each other and that would have included widows, widowers, and single persons as expressions of family. Evidently, Baptist men didnt like the idea of making any sort of gesture of submission to their wives.
