Thinking Anglicans

Women Bishops latest

Pat Ashworth writes in today’s Church Times Synod urged in two different directions on women bishops. Two quotes from this article:

The chairman of the Catholic Group on the General Synod, the Revd Canon Simon Killwick, has described as “insulting” and “offensive” the motion on women bishops which the House of Bishops will put forward at the July sessions.

Christina Rees, who chairs Women and the Church (WATCH), described “dire predictions” of an exodus of 500 clergy if the Measure were passed unamended as “unfounded and untrue” on Tuesday.

Also in the Church Times (as already noted here) Glyn Paflin writes Women bishops issue may dominate Synod.

I wuote from above: “The faithful in London should not allow foreign Anglican bishops to dictate how they should treat…”.

And that goes for women as bishops and priests also, methinks…

I find it insulting and offensive, that those who push a narrow misogyny (straight out of the Popoid playbook of junk theological anthropology) are dignified w/ the description “Catholic”. >:-/
