Church of England Votes on Female Bishops

The Church of England’s General Synod is set to vote on Monday on whether to allow women to become bishops.  This would not necessarily compel all Anglican Churches to accept women bishops, but it would set a precedent.  Conservative Anglicans rejected a previous proposal in 2012.  However, Anglican women in the United States, Canada and Australia have already been ordained as bishops.  ((London AFP,  Church of England female bishops would be ‘seismic’, July 11, 2014. available: http://news.yahoo.com/church-england-female-bishops-seismic-032533964.html))
