Is it theology, the apostolic succession, or just excuses for sexism. Symon Hill, Associate Director of Ekklesia looks back at his experiences being at theological college with a group of conservative Anglo-Catholics. Good post.
A good analysis of the Women Bishops vote, and also a good view of what might happen if the events of recent days galvanise the pro-women majority in the church into actively putting themselves forward for Synod.
Currently the 7% of conservative and traditional parishes have a working blocking minority in the House of Laity, if that goes in the next Synod election it may well be that a more pro-women synod will not give nearly so much ground to accommodate the traditionalists in any subsequent legislation...
Another good reflection here on the effects of the vote in Synod today and where we go from here. In particular it highlights that some focus needs to be directed towards the House of Laity in General Synod and how it can be so out of step with the rest of the church.
We, as clergy of the Church of England, stand alongside Rowan Williams, Justin Welby, and the dioceses of the Church of England, in hoping that the General Synod will vote on Tuesday to allow women to become bishops in our church.
One portion of red or processed meat a day increases our risk of dying screamed the headlines - needless to say a closer analysis of the study figures shows that it's not quite as clear cut as the newspaper stories might suggest.
A Guardian editorial on the situation in the Church of England bringing up the prospect of parliament removing the Church exemption from equalities legislation and the prospect of disestablishment of the church.
One effect of the failure to vote for Women Bishops yesterday is to bring a whole load of other subjects relating to the Church of England to the fore, in particular the relationship between Church and State, and the place of the Bishops in the House of Lords. That the state Church is allowed to ignore equality law has also been highlighted. This article is a good read calling for things to change as a result of the vote.
Another good "Where do we go from here?" article, in this case Fran Porter writing for Ekklesia suggesting that the way forward is to positively affirm women in the church whilst the institution tries to find a way forward.
Andrew Brown has written one of the best of the comment pieces on the vote on Women Bishops in Synod yesterday - he certainly doesn't pull his punches, and calls out the conservatives and traditionalists on some of the things they were saying from the podium. Well worth a read.
