Female Bishops

Hurrah, I can’t think that God would want it any other way…but I am sad to see the fighting and anger that this has provoked.

I really struggle to understand why it’s important that the person standing on the altar is a man or a woman and remain convinced that what matters is commitment and faith they hold.  My personal conviction is that we need to look at the whole concept of ‘priesthood’ and how church works.  I can’t see why, just because the disciples were men, only men can be priests. If we want to get specific, priests should only be Jewish converts, mostly ex-fishermen from Galilee.
