Comments: Church in Wales - Governing Body meeting

My prayer is that those Catholic minded Anglicans in Wales, who in conscience cannot accept womens ordination should act with integrity and join the Roman Catholic Church.The idea of two integrities in the one Church is nonsense.

As Christians we are called to love our neighbour as ourselves. We are not called to love our neighbour as themselves but ourselves. I cannot see how anyone can then say their neighbour is female and therefore less worthy to be their neighbour. Loving as ourselves means we give them the same potential as ouselves, the same respect and the same consideration. Anything other is just not Christian.

Wales votes for single clause amendment, bishops Bill defeated. Women bishops and no compromise.
A code of practice to be developed. That is all.
