Letter: Good riddance

I find it incredible and incomprehensible that some priests and bishops in the Church of England have decided to convert to Roman Catholicism because their church has decided not to discriminate against women and allow them to become bishops.

These men have devoted their lives to practicing, preaching and teaching the doctrine of the Anglican Church which rejects the infallibility of the Pope, allows priests to marry, supports the use of contraceptives and has not been involved in covering up child abuse. What does this say about the faith and beliefs of these men.

The Church of England should be thankful that they are leaving and say good riddance to them.
