Jeff - I think the issue of women bishops is clouding the more pertinent issue, namely the position of the CofE as the state church and its entanglement with the establishment. Being the established church has become a millstone round its neck. The CofE are stuck playing politics and trying to pander to everyone...and as I'm fond of saying if you try to please everybody you end up pleasing nobody. Compare the CofE with many other Christian groups (most notably the Roman Catholics). They do not allow women priests, let alone bishops - and yet David Cameron and the national media don't make a song and dance about that....and let's not forget Islam! Disestablish and let it become an independent church free of politics and state interference. Then they can see clearly to address issues such as women bishops among themselves.
