Comments: General Synod - Thursday's business

Best speech of the day for me was Hannah Page from the Youth Council - calling us back to core values and spending less time on internal matters.

When reading the provisions of the Draft Measure they feel wrong. Plain wrong.

They are impervious to being copied and pasted here, but reading about 'male bishops' deciding and doing this and that - basically refusing to ordain women ministers, or entertain women as bishop, I think it is a step too far and unacceptable.

Whether to have women ministers or don't but not this! How can it be right qualify women's ministry with these caveats?

It feels demeaning, not only to women but to us all.

Those against the ordination of women, seem neither to want the provisions or appreciate them.
