Female Pastors and The Baptist Faith and Message

The Baptist Faith and Message 2000 does not allow female pastors, stating:

While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.

It's important to recognise that the Christians you will come in contact with are not homogenous and they will have a spectrum of views which may or may not be in line with orthodox Christian beliefs. However, it's of use to know such details about the Southern Baptist Convention's views on female pastors to point out the widespread liberalism in churches is not representative of all Christians.
