HEADLINE OF THE DAY

From THE TELEGRAPH:

Now, that's just typical of the misogynist element in my church. We haven't even ordained any women bishops yet and this unmarried Anglo-Catholic priest is saying that they are wrong. And as he doesn't say what they are wrong about I assume he believes they are wrong about everything. Chauvinist pig!

  1. Of course you can’t have women rulers, any more than women bishops. Has he got a secret copy of John Knox’s ‘First Blast of the Trumpet against this Monstrous Regiment of Women’ under the mattress, I wonder?

  2. “I can’t acknowledge a woman bishop. If she then delegates her authority to a male bishop, it has no value. The validity of the sacrament is of vital importance.”

    Makes me so proud to be an Anglo-Catholic (not).

  3. There are lots of Queen’s chaplains at any one time. It’s a gong they hand out to priests nearing retirement who have never been promoted to a top job but perhaps should have been. It’s a traditional consolation prize.

  4. You mean she has a chorus line of chaplains? Yes, very ironic that the HEAD OF THE CHURCH is a gal…but Heaven Forbid a female bishop…perish the thought and other assorted clucking noises…
