First Female Bishop in Australia!
A big yay to the first female Bishop of the Anglican Church in Australia!
That will certainly be a bit of a blow to the Sydney Archdiocese who won't even recognise female priests.
I've lost patience with this whole issue. How can any Christian, of whatever stamp, really cling to this idea that God is only capable of working through one half of the human race? And naturally those that won't acknowledge female ministers are the same legalistic ideologues who condemn gay people and cling to spurious and just plain idiotic biblical interpretations to shore up their tired and hateful old argument.
So congratulations soon-to-be Bishop Goldsworthy - you are an asset to the church and a role model for all Australians.
