"What needs to die in the church"

Mainline Protestant stuff (the notion of our holy mother, the church is foreign to them). Several valid points, such as #3 (in which orthodox Catholics and liberal high churchmen, Episcopalians, are singing in perfect harmony), but re: overthrowing "white heterosexual male patriarchy" (as opposed to female patriarchy?), mainstream society's been doing this for decades, and the denominations that are doing this are dying faster (men sure are heading for the exits). The mainstream has outgrown the mainline; religion's a minority of conservatives now. Nope; MORE patriarchy. After all, the church has patriarchs! Fatherhood, from God.
