Comments: senior church appointments

Still not sure why Residentiary Canons count as senior appointments.

It is great to see such a clear and transparent process adopted for all these appointments that takes some account of standard professional processes, some reference to ecclesiological needs, and care for the potential candidates. But I did get the giggles when I realised there was no reference to gender in the episcopal appointments, a reporting requirement on 'diversity' in the senior appointments (!) and only a mention of 'suitable persons' being nominated to the Crown at the end. Where's the genitalia check? In fact I've often wondered, how does the church actually know someone's gender?

Thanks for digging this out, Simon. It is very good to have it easily available in one place until we all get used to it as the 'norm'.
