Rowan Williams is really, seriously gettin' on my nerves these days. Amazing that he won't acknowledge that the vast majority of Provinces in the Anglican Communion already ordains women!

This is more pandering to Nigeria and to Forward in Faith.

BLS, or is ++Rowan Cantuar also pandering to the Vatican in anticipation of his forthcoming visit to Rome and conversations with Pope Benedict XVI?

Pope Benedict himself is trying to find a way forward - including women in (lay) leadership roles so far still reserved for men in Holy Orders (1983 Code of Canon Law); his reluctance to speak out on the Spanish equivalent of the CPA in condemnation of it during his recent visit to Spain (instead, H.H. focused on Holy Matrimony as defined by RC Code of Canon Law), leaving himself some wiggle room for discernment and conversation as more EU adopt legal provisions for same-sex unions.
