Quite a few people have been getting upset over the news that Rowan Williams has apparently approved the Rev Jonathan Baker to become a bishop despite the fact he is a free mason (although has now said he will be leaving the organisation so it does not interfere with his role.) I don't know a lot about the Masons, what I do know I can't say I approve of. I was quite amused to find that a description of Freemasonry as,
" a secretive male-only organisation...which requires its members to declare a belief in a “supreme being” and to undergo elaborate rituals."
Goodness, nothing like any part of the Church then!
