‘If the advocates of female bishops had been somewhat more tolerant in the provision of facilities for the traditional group, there would be female bishops now.’ That’s one way of looking at it. The other is that if the ‘traditional group’ and its supporters had been more tolerant there would be female bishops now. It is quite clear to me that the evangelicals and the anglo catholics do not want women bishops under any circumstances and that they and their supporters like Mr Robilliard are using this spurious legal provisions argument as a rather convenient smokescreen.
