Are UMC female clergy in trouble?

I suspect one could go to any church and find that the majority of those in the pews are female. Yet pulpits are quite another matter. Culturally, a male pastor remains the first choice for many. With the current emphasis on scriptural authority, UMC female clergy may find themselves in difficulty. We all know "that verse."
