Finally the C of E gets its head out of its arse

well, over one issue anyway.

the general synod have voted overwhelmingly in favour of ordaining women bishops.

This is v. good news, and drags the church kicking and screaming into the mid-20th century, only 50 years late. The objections have been looking increasingly arcane and anachronistic, so I very much look forward to our first woman bishop, and hopefully, the first series of ‘The Bishop Of Dibley’ soon to follow.

Now, if only the church would get a move on with ordaining gay priests, and gay marriage, we’ll be almost up to scratch.
