Say what you want about the Church of England but when it comes to persecuting those within it who dare to espouse traditional teachings, well, God help you;
“The chairman of the Church of England’s House of Laity is facing a vote of no confidence. A bid to oust Dr Philip Giddings from his post was launched after women failed to win the right to become bishops at the General Synod in November – a measure he had spoken against. The legislation failed in the House of Laity, one of three houses which makes up the Synod, by just six votes.
So, when the liberal wing of Anglicanism fails to gets it way, it has a hissy fit!
Canon Stephen Barney is moving the vote of no confidence in Dr Giddings during the House of Laity meeting in Church House, Westminster. Setting out the reasons he has no confidence in the chairman, Canon Barney cited the speech Dr Giddings made before the crucial vote. He said the speech had convinced many undecided members of the House of Laity to vote against the legislation to introduce female bishops. Bit it did not represent the views of the House of Bishops as a whole and also directly contradicted the views of incoming Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
