House of Bishop report on sexuality (yawn...)

I've read quite a few blogs and comments suggesting that the current C of E advisory group/s (there are two of them apparently)  which have been set up to advise on  human sexuality are weighted in favour of a more conservative bias. The latest group, which will advise the House of Bishops and is made up entirely of - er- bishops, includes Keith Sinclair (Bishop of Birkenhead in Chester Diocese ) who is one of the patrons of the True Freedom Trust. Some people have also noted that the advisory group to the House of Bishops is a bit one sided as it consists entirely of men - well, they are all bishops you see, and...well, you get the picture. At the moment bishops cannot, by definition, be either women or openly gay. This does beg the question of how effectively a group can comment on sexuality when it does not include the perspective of a single woman or a single gay person.
I think we could already predict the conclusions of this rather skewed group and I really can't muster up the slightest interest in what they have to say.
