And also God is regarded as being the Head of the C of S, so no arguments there about male or female or who's higher up the ladder - and on that subject, if the C of E wants to discriminate against women, how can they accept the Queen as its Head?
I think when she came to the throne she was not allowed to be called Head of the C of E and some other title was bestowed - High Commissioner of the Faith or some such. Politicians are saying that the government should legislate to allow women to become bishops but ignore the outrageous misogyny of other faiths in UK. If the Cof E wants to debate endlessly about this then let them - its not doing any harm to society and they seem to enjoy it as far as I can tell from watching both sides tear into each other earlier today on TV. I think Jesus would have been pretty relaxed about women bishops but not too keen on forced marriages, exorcism and genital mutilation all of which are tolerated in UK today in the name of religion.
