1 Corinthians 11:5: But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 1 Corinthians 14:34: Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. Women were not priests in the old testament but they did prophesy. Deborah was a prophetess as was Miriam but there are no examples of them speaking in the tabernacle (church). I still see no contradictin.
