"One veteran campaigner for women bishops warned that defeat by a small minority unhappy with concessions would spark “huge anger” among the rank and file. “Too much attention has gone to this 'poor, poor beleaguered minority’,” she said. “They have been pushing this but they are like a spoilt child: the more you give them, the more they want.”Full report here
What a very strange remark to make by this unnamed 'campaigner', because it is crystal clear that the opponents of women bishops have, in fact, been offered less and less in terms of reliable provision each time this measure has been debated; but I'm afraid her comment is yet another example of language being used as a distraction from reality or, in other words, employed deliberately to mislead: to put it bluntly, it is a downright lie.
If the measure fails (and I would be very hesitant indeed about predicting that) it will be because it is seen to be unfair and unjust to the Anglican tradition itself.
