Thread Name: BS: A Female Archbishop
Subject: RE: BS: A Female Archbishop
Hmmmm - I'm dismayed at the innate sexism of religion and I can't see what's wrong with woman Bishops, Priests, Popes, Vicars, or whatever just as long as they cherish the historical treasures in their keeping and keep their supertitious mumbo-jumbo to themselves. Personally, I'd like to see all our historic churches & cathedrals run by the Government by way of heritage centres and museums. I'd also force any religious order to abide by Secular laws of equal opportunities or else see their silly institutions outlawed. Any public expression of religious faith would be a punishable offence, and anyone knocking on doors to spread the word would be forced to do extreme penance by way of good works in the community which they'd be better off doing anyway. I'd also replace Songs of Praise with something that reflects the multiplicity of faiths in Britain today, either that or side-line it onto Radio Two along with Folk on 2 and The Organist Entertains and leave the telly free for something worthwhile to my native culture & the spirituality thereof, like re-runs of Bilko and Top Cat which would be far better for the soul of our nation.
