Cof E finally accept women as Bishops. It took over twenty years to get it through. Wonder when we will get the first openly gay Bishop.

If religions want to survive in a "New Era" they must accept the changes that are to come. You know in traditional Hinduism only men are permitted to officiate as priests and to initiate people. Well some sects in the Hindu world have accepted women priests, and many women are giving spiritual initiations. Let us never forget that must of the time changes happen slowly. Probably some day the different religions of the world will proclaim that "no book can be called the word of God, but that sacred books are the testimony of men (an women) who expressed their spiritual understanding.

This is a great step forward! :clap:
Things will continue to move forward, but it does take time.
I am sure it will occur during my grandchildren's lifetime!

They had one of them which is why a Pope's 'credentials' are checked when he gets elected. Either women were very butch or men were very unobservant in them days. There was even a surgeon in the British army that was a woman. They only found out when she died. Terry Pratchet does an excellent parody of it in Monstrous Regiment which is a phrase borrowed from Shakespeare.

I was aware of the female pope, but I want to see a knowingly elected female.

I think we are more likely to get an elected monarch before that.
