Surprised that the recent failed vote to have C of E women bishops didn't make the thread. Must admit that I don't know a lot about it but on the surface, I can't see why it's such a problem (that there aren't women bishops). I'm sure that someone will enlighten me though.
I wish someone would enlighten me as well, especially as I understand that women have been ordained as bishops in NZ for decades. I just cannot understand why, if women can be ordained as priests, then why not as bishops? It makes no sense to me, but then I'm not C of E and the Church of Scotland has no such hierarchy, although it was only about 35 years ago that women were allowed to be ordained as ministers after many years of wrangling by the General Assembly.
