Comments: women bishops: a lot more information

No bishop-who-just-happens-to-have-two-X-chromosomes for at least *six years*, and this is thought (by the "Sky is falling!" crowd) to be *rushed*???

"It is the case that many supporters of women's ordination thought flying bishops would not work, and that like the non-jurors, the trads would die out. It hasn't happened, if anything they are stronger."

. . . just not in the Christian faith. >:-(

Un-freakin-believable!

I'm quite happy with my lady Bishop, thank you!

- but then I'm from the Global North ;=)

JC Fisher writes (of those opposed to the purported ordination of women): " . . just not in the Christian faith. >:-(" thereby unchurching the Holy Roman Church, the Orthodox Churches, the Copts....

I don't "unchurch" anyone, Alan.

I merely question why *Anglicans* (who should know better) would be so weak in their faith---in the Christ in Whom "there is no male or female."

In *Christ's* Church (not JC Fisher's, nor A Harrison's), that women have been discerned to be *called by God* to holy orders, and then canonically ordained, is FACT: not something "purported".

More Light, Lord: grant us More Light!

Goran, I didn't know that you had a lady bishop. Can you update us on which parish and diocese you serve now?
