Women in Religion

A Church of England group has devised a compromise designed to allow the ordination of women bishops without causing a split in the Church.

A report suggests a group of male bishops - so called "flying bishops" - could work in parishes unwilling to accept the authority of a woman. BBC News

So frequent in religion, the struggle to change attitudes to women are thwarted or subverted by past protocols. Would a similar concession be made if parishes didn't like a black bishop? Surely it is for them to consider their prejudices... thankfully in the Amida Order we are not tied to outdated outrages.
