Comments: Early Day Motion on Women Bishops

Voice of common sense and common humanity - at last.

There are going to be more of these warning shots across the bows of General Synod. The consequences of a 'no' vote in July (assuming the sheenanigans this week pass off uneventfully) will be seismic in the CofE, probaby pressaging the end of Establishment and marginalising the Church for ever.

Unless the two Archbishops have unseen forces ready to block proceedings, it would seem, democratically, that the Measure should pass on the Code of Practice that allows a Woman Bishop jurisdiction in her own diocese. Let's hope that this happens - for the lasting credibility of the Church of England.

I hope Synod will do the right thing this week and in July--but this is a new Synod.

One fears that the Archbishops' mistakes of principle and strategy will haunt the CofE for years.
