Nod to the synod

Have your say

I was pleased that on Monday the ruling General Synod voted to restart work on the issue of women bishops in the Church of England.

We are reminded of the extent to which the Church of England enjoys privileged exemption from equality laws which would apply in any other walk of life.

It is unbelievable that an 
established institution, ostensibly speaking for all, is only now 
beginning to shake off these anachronisms.

It must now question its other “traditional” discriminations, such as it shows towards gay people, if it wishes to avoid the younger generation continuing to vote with their feet.
