    "The Church of England's general synod has voted against appointing women as bishops.
    Campaign group Women and the Church called it "a devastating blow" for the Church and the people of England.
    The next Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, earlier called on the synod to approve the measure.

    Another nail in the coffin for Christianity here in the UK. If they haven't have shown how irrelevant they are already, they just may have done now.

    more hate speech from the secular liberals who dont like anything that doesn't conform
    to their world view, may i suggest you try and join an all ladies gymnasium, perhaps
    you can cry about their sexist attitude once you are told you cannot.

    Our UK society is more peaceful and equal than at any point in our history. Christianity has had it's chance, time to move over.

    there is a very sensible reason for all female gyms. there isnt any sensible reasons for not having female bishops.

    If religion was about doing the sensible thing, more than half of it would have to be scrapped.
    The fact is that the New Testament (just as the Old Testament) is against women leaders in Church. Although most Christians are comfortable with scrapping most of the rules of the Old Testament because they can conveniently say 'that was for the Jews', or 'that was the Old Covenant', it is not so easy to explain away disregarding the New Testament.
    On top of this, the Church of England is to a very large degree a tradition or culture as much as a religion. People don't like having their traditions changed. Just try moving Christmas to December 31st because its 'more sensible' and see how far you get.

    many woman are self conscious about their bodies, especially around men. due to the nature of the clothes worn at gyms many woman feel uncomfortable going to multi-sex gyms. the same principle could be applied to changing rooms, do you think female only changing rooms are sexist??? no of course you dont, that would be stupid, as is calling female only gyms sexist.

    there is no negative sub-text for female only gyms. their existence in no way says anything bad or subjugates men. unlike not allowing female bishops.

    there is no need to explain anything away, the Bible states that the responsibility for
    leadership and shepherding within the congregation is to be shouldered by men, end

    I was raised here in Dublin Ireland in the Catholic faith.
    One of three places where chicks have no authority.
    The other two are the Church of England and Saudi Arabia.

    I have seen JW women go around preaching with their men,
    but the Mormons don't allow that
