From THE TELEGRAPH:
A group of Church of England bishops met last week with advisers of Pope Benedict XVI to set in motion steps that would allow priests to convert to Catholicism en masse. (Their move towards full apostasy) comes only weeks ahead of a crucial General Synod debate on making women bishops.
The Rt Rev John Broadhurst, the Rt Rev Keith Newton and the Rt Rev Andrew Burnham, the bishops of Fulham, Richborough and Ebbsfleet respectively, are understood to have informed senior Catholic officials that Church of England clergy are keen to defect to Rome.
The Most Rev Vincent Nichols, the Archbishop of Westminster, was unaware of the summit.
A leading Anglican cleric said: "This will seriously embarrass the Pope. It's a plot within the Vatican that they are desperate to keep quiet until they are ready to go public. Many will see this as proof that the Catholic Church is intent on poaching clergy from the Church of England despite its reassurances to the contrary."
COMMENT: So, will this mean that there will be no more flying bishops in England? Sounds good to me. In fact, I'm considering putting up a donation button to raise the cash for their plane tickets. Heck, I think we could even run to business class if they absolutely promise not to come back.
