Some C of E bishops have ganged together to try and stop, or at least reduce the effect of having female bishops. Irritatingly one of them was interviewed on the radio. Rather than asking them about their reasons for wanting to promote sexism, he was asked purely about the tactical considerations. This annoys me. He was allowed to get off by saying it was a matter of conscience.

A matter of conscience? One can explain being sexist as a matter of conscience! What next? Bishops explaining that their need to stone adulterers is a matter of conscience? Sexism is sexism, no matter how you dress it. It is time for the church to move with time or not exist anymore....
