"Some MPs insist that they will move forward with legislative penalties against the church if the situation is not rectified to the state's satisfaction."
A most disturbing quote if ever there was one. Ever heard of this thing known as religious liberty?
The church and church leaders were all for it.
The laity nixed it.

The incoming Archbishop of Canterbury says he expects to "consecrate" a female bishop notwithstanding the vote.

The church is dying in England. Very few even bother to attend anymore. They have adopted all kinds of liberal/anti-biblical views. I am glad that the few who attend have put their foot down.

Ever heard of this thing known as religious liberty?
Religious liberty is a nonexistent concept in a state run church with a secular monarch serving as the CEO.

It’s a state religion. You take the good with the bad. If you’re going to get government funding for your religion, you can’t really bitch when they want to regulate it.

The First Archbishop of the Church of England was my ancestor. At that time, priests couldn’t marry. He had married in Germany, so he carted her around in a trunk/wardrobe. Eventually, the church accepted priestly marriage. I think it is time they moved into the 20th century and recognized the equality of women by supporting them as bishops. Otherwise, they are only a couple of steps above the Taliban in institutionalizing an inferior status to women.

The Church of England will be commanded by politicians to ordain bishopettes, and they will do it.
Finally revealing, in a definitive way, that their “branch of the church catholic” claim is a bald faced lie.
