Comments: opinion

I thought the serial "we're doomed" narrative belonged to Private Frazer of Dad's Army - it didn't sound like the Gospel then, and it doesn't sound like the Gospel now - as a comic device, that was the point of it.

Re Giles Fraser's article: I'll look forward to seeing Gravity (but not on a Sunday morning) when it reaches a cinema near me.

Thanks for the Jon Kuhrt item. Kuhrt has a number of things right, including the conclusion. However,the long overdue inclusion of women in the ministry of episcope will not be enough, in and of itself, to remedy the situation. If wardrobe is an indicator, women bishops in North America, for example, have the same haberdasher as the boys. The problems of impotence, powerlessness, and pomposity are grounded in Anglicanism's chronic and congenital clericalism--something in which many of us, clergy and laity alike, are complicit, or "enabler"s to use the quasi-therapeutic lingo of the times.
