Divide & Rule in the C of E

http://www.churchtimes.co.uk/articles/2012/27-july/news/uk/women-bishops-synod-asked-for-its-views Irate letter of the day, no. 2 Dear Editor, The House of Bishops ignored the considered opinions of 42 diocesan Synods. Now, they present the General Synod with seven options. This might be an exercise in careful listening, or it might be divide and rule, and represent a deep institutional commitment to remaining in limbo. Until the C of E gives up its addiction to finding clever forms of meaningless words to avoid addressing its own problems, it has no right to be heard on the subject of anyone else's. Big boys and girls learn to live with losing arguments and still staying friends. Yours faithfully, (The Revd) Richard Haggis
