This issue has been a tinder box since before the "Philadelphia 13" issue. When I was young and ignorant, I believed that women had the right to be ordained as priests. That was around 1984, or so. I had that opinion until around 2001. What got mind to change was to find biblical evidence that God supported women being ordained as either bishops or priests. I could not find any. Since I am a theology student, and consider myself an armchair theologian, my opinion of the women's ordination took a 180 degree turn. Lately, especially on titusonenine, there has been some heated discussion on the issue of women's ordination. The link is below:
In this article, one person in particular also states that they are pro-choice as well. They claim to be an orthodox anglican, and be pro-WO, and pro-choice. In my opinion, you cannot have either. I was so elated when the Supreme Court upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. It's only a start, but I'll take it. I have also seen bumperstickers that have said "Prayerfully Pro-Choice." Forgive them, Lord, for they know not what they do.... Either that, or they know EXACTLY what they're doing....

Hmmm... I must not be reading the same Holy Bible that Jeffrey John is reading, because Jesus died "once, for all." Yes, you saw the name right. John, who has a civil "partnership" with another male in England. Rowan Williams asked him to step down from being the Bishop of Reading because he was not a celibate homosexual. To his credit, John did so to preserve the communion. Anyway, John should not even be an ordained minister. A bishop or minister should be a man of one WIFE, not husband. He's been listening to those liberals at Oxford too long. His brain will turn to mush before too long...
