Good Opening Address by the ABC!

If the Church of England can manage with the "Two Integrities' on Women Bishops; surely the Provinces of the A.C. can manage diversity in Sexuality and Gender? Time alone will tell.

The uncharitable part of me says we'll only start talking about "two integrities" when the conservatives start thinking they might lose the battle. At the moment they still think they can win on sexuality so they'll continue to demand that anyone who disagrees with them is excluded, and push to have the secular law support their bigotry (with a few honourable exceptions).

Our Lord said, I am the way , the life and the truth..not the two integrities!

Thirty-nine years after the Sex Discrimination Act 1975. Stand by for same-sex marriages in CofE churches in 2053!

I thought this picnic needed an ant {waves at RIW}. ;-/

The Imago-Dei-Made-Female are discerning calls by "the Way, Truth and Life" to holy orders (confirmed by Christ's Church to the episcopal order): it may make you uncomfortable (the Gospel does that to all of us, in one way or another!), but it inarguably has "integrity".
