I find it difficult to believe that the Anglican Church has made such heavy weather of women Bishops. They made the crucial decision to have women vicars years ago. How can they deny their female employees the chance of promotion? Today’s Synod should just get on with it, and allow any woman who is capable of doing the job to be able to compete for it.
What text from the Bible do they use to deny them? Do the so called conservatives deny the important role of Mary Magdalen in the Bible story? Do they acknowledge that women were important in the early Church, just as they are often more numerous in the congregations of the contemporary Church?
