Ten out of the twelve?
This is now rather old news (forgive me, I'm still catching up), but The Times http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article7114628.ece
reports earlier this week that that "ten out of the twelve" women tipped in official C of E circles to become bishops have indicated that they would be willing to comply with the code of practice (the announcement could come as soon as tomorrow - "take out the trash day," for devotees of the West Wing) likely to be imposed on traditionalists by the Church of England General Synod.
What a relief - that makes it O.K., then!
But I'm glad something is now out in the open. Let's hear no more nonsense about the action of the Holy Spirit in the selection of candidates for the Anglican episcopate.
Appropriately enough on General Election day, it's all politics now.
