The Church of England will soon have women bishops. This is now certain. Many Anglo-Catholics feel betrayed. As long as the Anglican Church insists on women bishops there is no chance of unity with the Roman Catholic Church or with the Orthodox. The inevitable responses to this from pro-women priest Catholics is just fantasy-speak. The game is finally up. How long will the Church of England remain established? It will be a tragedy for Britain (yes you read a Catholic priest saying this) if we are left without the national Church at a time of militant secularism. The country, as well as many Anglicans, will pay a heavy price for this nonsense. What is it all for in the end? Certainly not Christian unity and certainly not a confident biblically-based evangelism. This is compromise, pure and simple, but the cosy "Christianity-lite" of liberal Anglicanism will not survive either. What a waste of blood, sweat and tears, bricks and mortar.
