We lost a much beloved founding member of EEWC-Christian Feminism Today yesterday, September 25, 2020. Virginia Ramey Mollenkott was a giant in the world of Christian feminism.
Virginia’s prescient biblical scholarship will remain relevant for decades to come.
We’ll never know the number of LGBTQ Christian lives she saved with her groundbreaking book, “Is the Homosexual My Neighbor?” (coauthored with Letha Dawson Scanzoni in 1978).
Dearest Virginia, we thank you for sharing your love and inspiration with all of us, and we pledge to continue your work to bring into being a more just, inclusive, and loving Christianity.

Virginia Ramey Mollenkott has joined the ancestors. I loved this Great Woman…and she loved me. We had many deep authentic conversations about reconciling faith, gender and sexuality…and about our Many Breasted God. Rest well my Dear True Friend. Help us from where you are.
Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, Christian feminist theologian died last night. We lost another great teacher and change maker. I was lucky enough to be in Seminary when I met Virginia. She greatly influenced my life and ministry.
Saddened to hear that Virginia Mollenkott has died. Rest in Peace, Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, you were a warrior for peace who challenged us to accept and love ourselves and pushed us to keep expanding the circle of love and acceptance. As a warrior for justice, you provided respite and inspiration. Like a mother eagle, you brought us to great heights so we could see more clearly the landscape before us. Your laughter reflected the beauty. Your wit exposed the hypocrisy. Your scars revealed the dangers. You encouraged us to sing, and dance and love our bodies. You equipped us for adventures and battlefields. Then you pushed us out of the nest to fly our own journeys. I’m sure you had no idea how far we have flown or how significant your legacy has been to us and through us. We were blessed to have you among us for such a good, long life. May we remember you by living and loving as you taught us to do.
I am saddened to hear of the passing of Virginia Ramey Mollenkott. She and I both came from a fundamentalist Christian background. Her groundbreaking book “Is the Homosexual My Neighbour” brought incredible blessing and healing in my life as I began my coming out journey as gay and Christian. I particularly appreciated her interpretation of Scripture based on sound scholarship regarding sexuality that revealed to me how wrong I had been in this regard. She has been a saint in my life.
Now she joins that great cloud of witnesses of which the New Testament book of Hebrews speaks. Thank you Virginia for your faithful witness. You made a difference in my life and in the lives of countless other LGBTQ Christians.
Well done good and faithful servant. Now go rest in power.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
