Comments: Women Bishops - Friday morning press reports

“and the Church would never be the same again” that is only on papers, the ordinary members of the church has open the door to inclusion and equality long time ago. The selfish conservatives are the main reason why the church is declining in membership.

What galaxy does Robert Pigott live in? (For that matter, what galaxy does the Church of England exist in?) "By the end of 2013, or some time in 2014, it's likely that the first woman bishop could be selected and ordained, and the Church would never be the same again." Well, actually, within the Anglican Communion we've had women bishops for over thirty years, and although most of us think that has been a Good Thing, it's hardly the case that "we will never be the same again." (Would that were true, actually!) The narcissism of the Church of England is appalling. Get over yourselves, brothers! (The sisters on the whole are not the problem!) If "Anglicanism" is to be defined by the Church of _England_ (as technically I suppose it should be), then perhaps "Anglicanism" is a waste of our time, and of God's.

I'm glad the BBC will be posting the Proms on the internet again this summer. At least they got something right. Appointing religious affairs correspondents wasn't it.

Pigott on women priests: 'there's little dispute that they have proved their worth'.

The jury is still out, however, on the men.
