Well, the BIG news is that the next Archbishop of Canterbury has called the rejection of women bishops a “very grim day”, as bishops prepare for an emergency meeting on the issue.
The ordination of women bishops in the Church of England was narrowly rejected by its ruling general synod on Tuesday. The Rt Rev Justin Welby, who takes over the Church’s top role next year, said the lost vote was hard “most of all for women priests and supporters”.
The liberal wing of the COE will be gutted. Big deal. I couldn’t care less if there are women Bishops are not. What WOULD be nice to see is the emergence of Christian Bishops however. Those within the COE need to have a very careful read of the 39 articles of religion which they ALL sign up to when joining that Church and ask themselves why they choose not to debate these instead of gender politics.
