To laugh or cry?

 Peter from  Faith is not the same as Religion has written this great little story inspired by the Church of England publishing its "legal advice" on the appointment of bishops in civil partnerships. Meanwhile, some nice use of irony from Rev. Mustard on the letters page of The Church Times, while Canon Michael Stagg points out that women bishops also have the potential to, “cause division and disunity within the diocese, the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion” (to quote the proposed criteria), and yet Synod overwhelmingly voted for them. Giles Fraser, earlier this week, wrote a piece that drew attention to John Sentamu's comment on Kate and William's cohabitation before marriage, not his charming analogy in which Kate featured as a well milked cow, but his sage advice that, "What is important, actually, is not to simply look at the past.”

I wish the Church would look more intelligently and humanely at what is important...actually...
