YOU HAVE TO FEEL SORRY FOR QUEEN ELIZABETH

ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY AT SCENE OF RACE RIOTS
ONE JUST HAS TO TRY TO IGNORE SUCH THINGS

You really do have to feel sorry for Queen Elizabeth II. All of the resources of the British Government and the Royal Family are engaged in the exercise of building toward the June formal celebration of yesterday's 60th Anniversary of her accession to the throne, when from just off stage someone decides to play the Clown!

Having inherited Headship of one's own Church, the Church of England, surely one could expect that it would behave with some semblance of
sanity at this time - even if not at other times. But no.....

                                   ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY WHEN HE HAD HIMSELF MADE A DRUID

The Archbishop of Canterbury,a noted scholar who sometimes seems to suffer surges of eccentricity, or worse, as our pictures above show, has together with his archiepiscopal brother of York, Archbishop Sentamu had an idea. Unfortunately they decided to tell everyone else....

                                                                   ARCHBISHOP OF YORK JOHN SENTAMU

They have a problem. The ramshackle Church of England is falling apart. It is torn between:
women would be Bishops and respecters of Tradition, 
between homosexuals and their desires for recognition and those who still recall the moral law, 
between those who believe in Priesthood ( even though they lack it in validity) and those who  believe in Lay Presidency as they term it.

Despite the fact that this unholy farce is being enacted frequently in the glorious Cathedrals stolen from the Catholic Church at the time of the Protestant Deformation, it is impossible to dignify it - even by such grand settings.

And, as if all that were not enough , there is the growing tide of Anglicans returning to the Catholic Church from which their forebears were torn by Henry VIII 500 years ago, either individually or in groups through the Ordinariate process.

But what was the idea the two leading lights of Anglicanism conceived and unfortunately revealed? Well, it goes like this...we have women who want to be Bishops, and people who believe such a thing breaks with tradition, sooo....... Let's appoint to the relevant Anglican Sees A woman Bishop and a parallel Traditional male Bishop ...that way EVERYONE WILL GET WHAT THEY WANT!!!  TA..DA..!!!

But what?? Even before the idea has been formally put to the Church's General Synod, it is being ridiculed by EVERYONE!! Anglican Priest the Reverend Ms.Rose Hudson -Wilkin, the first black woman Chaplain to the House of Commons,who is very keen to become a Bishop , and thought to be a likely prospect if such things become a reality - poured scorn  on the idea."If we are to have women Bishops. then we need to have women bishops. We need to stop moving the goalposts. I am not happy with anything that only begrudgingly makes women bishops....What sort of collegiality is there going to be between these two if the other bishop does not accept the woman's role as bishop? It is a nonsense."

There is much more in that vein from others. Although it seems generally agreed that the outcome of the debate could go either way, there seem to be a goodly number of the ladies lining up to get a guernsey or should we say Cope?

Meanwhile, back at the Palace.....one would have hoped that the mitred gentlemen of Canterbury and York might have reflected on what it means to be a Bishop (  even if NOT validly Ordained) before making such complete asses of themselves and thus OF ONE'S VERY OWN CHURCH!!!
