The Reverend could have simply quoted the Bible to refute Linda Morris because Linda, as a woman, has nothing valuable to say and should limit her participation to asking her husband to explain things to her.

"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. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church." (1 Corinthians 14:34-35).
