Comments: women bishops: British press opinion

In the final reckoning, the equal treatment of women is quite simply one of the great moral causes of humankind. It is one which poses challenges to many of the major religions of the world as well as the Church of England, but the challenge is particularly acute for the established church of a nation in which equal treatment is rightly one of the cornerstones of public life - as well as one that has been headed by a woman since 1952. There is nothing trendy or impulsive about this decision. By the time the first woman bishop is ordained, probably in 2015, the campaign for women clergy will have lasted more than a century. The process has been long, but the outcome splendid, and, in the end, the church has spoken for England.

Thanks, Guardian. Oh well I guess I am a Guardian sort then.
