(BBC) Anglicans to march in support of women bishops

The Church of England’s ruling body, the General Synod, is to discuss legislation on women bishops this week.

Progressive Anglicans fiercely oppose the plans, claiming it would make women second-class bishops.

    Your very astute observation just gave me a vision of the near future. Charles III being crowned in Westminster Abbey by a woman dressed up like a bishop. God preserve us.
