In reply to Bishop Tom

Tom, in your reply you think we should allow women into our order and basically I agree with you. My best friend, confidant and advisor is a women who happens to also be my wife. The reason we are not allowing women at this time to join our order is one of history and abiding by that history and this is the decision the Council has decided upon.

In your reply you refer to “growth” and acceptance of change and I quite agree with you, but I am only one of the 12 Council members who decide these rules. If the time come for us to accept women into our order I will do so happily, but not today, for history written is history to accept and obey.

Sincerely,

James von Braun, GMAOTK
