If I was looking for a half-way open-minded church that didn't believe women were born to breed and serve their husbands, don't raise their hands as filled with the holy spirit or (god forbid) speak in tongues and prophecy over you, aren't into creationism, don't bitch about how things were "so much better in the past", keep their noses out of politics and the like...

what kind of church would that be? (other than unitarian)

any rec's? are there some liberal lutheran or methodist churches out there? i seriously doubt Baptist churches would meet these spec's right? 

ETA: Last night it was a toss up between the local Lutheran church and the local Methodist one... I chose the Methodist b/c it had a ton of programs for young marrieds with and without kids and it seemed to fit us more.

So I went this morning (the husband was conveniently sick *ahem* this was his idea) and it was really great! They have three pastors -- two men and a black woman, and boy was she awesome!! Afterwards I talked to her a bit more about the church and she said, "If you're looking for a Baptist church you ain't gonna find it here! We're really laid back and represent the whole scope of political backgrounds, educational levels, etc. We figure God gave us a BRAIN for a REASON!" 

Thanks for the rec's! I might try the Lutheran church just to cover the bases, but it was a little more geared toward the older community here, so I'm hoping the Methodist one works out!
