Comments: LGBTAC comments on Southwark

I can agree with all of this. It hits the nail!

The CofE would be hard put to respond in such careful and measured terms.

I think the Dean of Southwark and the Cathedral Chapter will still have to 'elect' the chosen candidate formally in a process which involves only the one name being put. Failure to elect leads to some kind of medieval penalty for disobeying the Crown.

Now that would be an interesting meeting to have a leak or two from ...

The development of the historical process of election is outlined here, ordinary vicar - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cong%C3%A9_d%27Elire.

Penalties for non-compliance are not detailed, but knowing Henry VIII, can probably be quite drastic, though not, perhaps, as drastic as those of Geoffrey of Anjou, father of Henry II, who in 1144 castrated the cathedral chapter of Seez, along with their bishop-elect, after they proceeded to election without his permission.

re lapinbizarre "Geoffrey of Anjou, father of Henry II, who in 1144 castrated the cathedral chapter of Seez, along with their bishop-elect, after they proceeded to election without his permission."

Now THAT'S Erastianism!
