How astute, Cde Johnson.

"How astute, Cde Johnson."

Exactly. If there was provision in the college of bishops for a white supremacist, the measure would not have passed, or been received well by parliament. However, since the provision is only for a male supremacist, it's OK. In fact it's more than OK, it is "welcome news."

Pastoral provision at the local level makes sense. But CoE has apparently enshrined a male supremacist whose theology on male headship is neither received theology, nor a solution for the catholic wing. It is only for a tiny, apparently powerful few. I hope that this male supremacist bishop has a well defined and limited role, with no power to humiliate any female clergy, or female bishops visiting from other provinces.
