Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church.
This site talks about the passage, defending it by saying it's not to be taken literally and it's to be taken in context, and to be honest it all seems rather convenient. The problem is, when Paul goes and says something we do agree with, do we say it wasn't meant to be taken literally and that we have to remember the context?
Paul writes 13 of the books of the New Testament... this might prove difficult.
