Church of England Liberals have failed to introduce women bishops
The Church of England has voted
to introduce female bishops.
In favour of female bishops
The legislation needed a two-thirds majority
in all three houses of the General Synod to pass. The rule is that this issue cannot be voted upon again for
About 95 % of bishops in favour; about three quarters of clergy in favour; but less than two thirds of laity in favour.
(Typical breakdown for Liberalism - top down changed to be imposed on the masses.)
I am amazed, nay stunned.
I thought it was a sure thing (and so did the Liberals).
Just goes to show: keep praying, never despair...
