The Church of England just recently said no to women bishops. There were howls of outrage from all the predictable quarters, for whom such a troglodyte move is just smack-the-forehead baffling.
Now I can understand a vote against women bishops as a preliminary move to try to undo the ordination of women priests. And I can understand a vote for women bishops as the next logical step after having established the practice of ordaining women priests. What I don't get is the affirming the ordination of women priests and opposing them as bishops. The pig, once swallowed by the python, has to move on down the line.
Also what I don't get is the attempt by men like N.T. Wright to pretend that women's ordination is a matter of biblical obedience, as opposed to floating down the Whig view of history on an inner tube, right over the falls of progress.

That was very good. I’m a big fan of his and I always enjoy his writing.
Here is a piece he wrote years ago titled “Perfectly Legal” that is a classic IMHO. He describes the actions of the modern unbeliever with excellent imagery. Enjoy!
Another excellent one from Wilson. Thanks for posting.
They had no business ordaining them in the first place, now they have a conundrum.
