    Women bishops: Welby urges synod to vote in favour

    BBC News - Women bishops: Welby urges synod to vote in favour

    The next Archbishop of Canterbury has backed the ordination of women bishops, saying it is "time to finish the job" started with appointing women priests.

    The Rt Rev Justin Welby also told the Church of England general synod he would ensure provisions for opponents were "carried out faithfully".

    The synod is due to vote on proposed legislation later. Bishops and clergy are expected to achieve the necessary two-thirds majorities in favour.

    But the lay members' vote may be tight.
    Dragging Christianity out of the stone age inch by inch, by tooth and claw.

    You do mean the Church of Englamd right?
    And that the Church of England does not represent all of Christianity, right?

    That was the point. While the COE is trying to drag themselves into the 21st century the Catholic Church and most evangelical sects in the US are still clicking the heels of their ruby slippers.
