Oh my, what will the Anglican clergy who've moved to the Catholic church do then?  

One day they'll listen . . . or maybe a better word would be 'hear'.


I have wondered if any ex Anglican clergy who became Catholic because of the ordination of women have since been disillusioned or otherwise changed their mind. Does anyone know of any? What would they do next?

Did you have in mind any particular thing which you think might have caused this disillusionment?

No, it was just a thought. Continuing to think about it, it is possible that some have had a change of heart about the ordination of women as many non clergy have. What seems very important at one time may be less so at a later date. I was (mentally) putting myself in that position and had an overwhelming feeling of desolation.
Not all ex C.ofE. Catholic priests changed because of womens ordination though, we must remember that.

How much longer are the churches going to be tolerated, making up religion as that suits them and not the creator who they profess to worship?

Why did God say get out of her my people?

That is a good point. Too much religion& Tradition which obscures faith. Yet it is human nature to get caught up in it. Makes me weary.

The very idea that women should be excluded from holding any kind of office in any religion at all is ludicrous and offensive.

Women's capacity to take on such posts is just as good as men's, and to believe otherwise is bigoted and sexist.

An inevitable move but also the right one:

The Church of England has finally agreed that women may become bishops, ending 20 years of bitter compromises since women were allowed to become priests in 1994.

The Synod had been threatened with parliamentary action if the measure had failed, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, had prepared contingency plans to dissolve it and call fresh elections if the vote had gone the wrong way.

But the crisis was averted by a change of mind, and vote, among lay members. A previous attempt in 2012 failed when 74 lay members voted against, preventing the required two-thirds majority among the laity.

Well, the Presbyterian understanding of the root word (episkapos) from which the CofE and other churches derive the office of bishop, is different to that of 'episcopal' churches.

That being said, my only comment is that if they allow women vicars, there is no reason for them not to allow women bishops as well.
