I wonder if this would also include the Virgin Mary who is a single woman.
I wonder if she would be allowed on Athos.... Or Martha for that matter.
Of course, clergy is all men...
I don't see it as dominance, I see this as scriptural. "Man is the head of women". "Wives submit to your husbands, and husbands love your wives as yourself".
There's a lot of odd contrasts we could talk about here.
Should women be "speaking" at such venues when women are not clergy, cannot receive ordination, etc.
"Woman what does this concern you" was spoken to the Virgin Mary.
Anyway, food for thought.... Just posting random thoughts. Seriously not trying to troll or anything... It's a very controversial issue.
