Skip to comments.Justin Welby: We'll Stop Protests at Consecration of Women Bishops
Posted on 08/09/2016 5:37:20 PM PDT by marshmallow
The Church of England is to ban protests at the consecration of female bishops after a campaign mounted by Women and the Church (WATCH).
The organisation wrote to the Archbishop of Canterbury following protests that disrupted the last four consecrations of women bishops, saying: "Such interruptions create the perception that the Church is willing to allow a woman who has been called by God and the Church, and appointed by the Crown, to be publicly insulted and undermined.
"If that is so, it undermines and insults all women: and especially women for whom female bishops are potent symbols of a radical shift in the Church's treatment of women. 'Maybe things haven't changed at all, underneath', they might conclude."
WATCH said today: "The Archbishop of Canterbury has informed us that conversations are in progress with the relevant people so that, in future, objections such as that at Canterbury Cathedral in June will not be allowed. Thank you to those who have written in support of our statement."
The mechanism for banning protests is not clear and the Archbishop of Canterbury's office declined to comment further for Christian Today.
However, at one point in the consecration service the congregation is traditionally asked whether the candidate should be a bishop. WATCH had said: "At the next consecration of female bishops, we hope that things will be arranged differently."

On their way to Holy Hell.
The sane members of the congregation will have to leave.
Who is complaining? The moslems?
Why would THEY care? The ones complaining are other Anglicans, obviously.
SOME folks want things the "way they were." I guess they don't believe that change is always good.
Who are the Anglicans? They the ones that are going off on one tangent after another?
Just so very, very creepy and a denial of the maternal, paternal instincts and nature of male/female.
More pretending in utopia (pure Marxism) where Slavery is Freedom, Men are Women, and Vice is Virtue. Reality is now the trans-humanism of J. Huxley —total removal from Reality (Biology/Science/Reason/Natural Law) to total irrationality (emotions only allowed)—virtue Reality where whatever is in your mind determines Reality (Truth). Man makes up good and evil as they ignore Natural Law (Reason, Logic and God’s Design). Christianity is being destroyed on purpose because Reason and Faith was combined only in Christianity and collectivists want dumb useful idiots only (people incapable of thinking for themselves).
Get your children OUT of any group-(non)-think artificial institutions which take children out of the Natural Family where they embed the unnatural and artificial, sterile ideology of the sodomites and Marxists who want all sexual morality and identity eliminated in the children-—concepts of mother, father (female/male roles) destroyed in children along with sexual morality so they will be totally corrupted and incapable of Reason: Men are Women, Vice is Virtue—little tribal Inca mindsets.
All true sexual identity is being removed from children, so they are entirely warped and conditioned like Pavlovian dogs (irrational for life).
This is just for conditioning of children to create sexual identity confusion and normalizing the idea that women and men are interchangeable (Marxism) which is anti-Christian-—LOL—in a so-called Christian “church”....LOL The Catholic Church may be infiltrated by homosexual Freemasons since VII but they still won’t allow women to pretend to be a male or say that killing babies is “good” or sodomizing others should be celebrated.....well, at least not yet. They do have the oxymoronic “girl altar boys” though which is a heresy along with women ministers.......disgusting. There are great roles for women in the Church—but not in the male roles so children aren’t warped and confused.
Women are not called by God to be bishops, they are to remain silent in Church.
Change s never good when it is evil.
Just so very very creepy
There is always room for some disagreement among the Churches
but the scripture is so clear on this subject that it can be
nothing but willingly catering to the wiles of the devil.
I don't know but the Church of England IS the "official" faith of England...and they are Anglicans.
I didn't read enough about it to get any details. Annoying that it wasn't an "in-depth" report.
I always hope to change for the better. For me that means PATIENCE.
I get REALLY annoyed with drivers who drive as if they are trying to kill themselves, with me as "collateral" damage. I always hope that a cop gets them.
My hope WAS answered once, about a year ago. I pass that intersection five times a week and I ALWAYS smile at the memory.
Women were never called to be priests in both the Catholic and Orthodox Judaism. So, since they cannot be priests, they can't be bishops.
The Catholic Church followed the Judaic model: male rabbis, male priests. I don't think that will change.
As for women remaining silent in Church...lol. You're kidding, of course. I don't know what it is about some women, but some CANNOT keep still, even in Church. I can and I go to daily Mass and there ARE chatterboxes.
They ANNOY me when they chatter at Mass.
