London, England, Oct 21, 2012 / 05:48 pm (CNA).- The outgoing Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams is trying to persuade members of the Church of England’s upcoming General Synod to back the ordination of women as Anglican bishops, putting further strain on the theologically divided Anglican Communion.
First of all, I realize that this has to do with the Anglican church and I know this is the Catholic News forum but I felt that this forum was better for this type of thread than the World News forum.
Now, on to the topic of the article. I honestly feel like if Rowan Williams and other Anglican clergy continue to push the women’s ordination thing that this is going to drive more conservative Anglicans towards the Catholic Church. This could only be a good thing. However, it is also sad to see that the Anglican church is pushing away from orthodoxy.
