Big job for new fe­male bishop

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

IT’S go­ing to be most in­ter­est­ing to see what im­pact, if any, the ap­point­ment of a fe­male Bishop of Lon­don will have upon those branches of the Church of Eng­land who con­tinue to con­demn the or­di­na­tion of women.

Some of these same churches ag­gres­sively re­ject LGBT peo­ple such as les­bians. I also un­der­stand that a few even claim that Catholics are not true Chris­tians, a sen­ti­ment un­likely to ap­peal to the Catholic Church. The new bishop cer­tainly has her work cut out if she is to chal­lenge such prej­u­dices! Let us hope that she can ob­tain some clear­ly­de­fined, mea­sur­able ad­vances in drag­ging such churches into the 21st Cen­tury. Antony Porter Lon­don, W.9.
