From today's Guardian

At the Council of Trent in 1415, a meeting of the Christian great and knowledgeable decided, after much intellectual wrestling, that women now had souls. A three vote majority sealed it.
Today, 796 years later, doctrinal promotion is assured.

Not yet, by 6 votes.

It's interesting that it was the laity that brought down the motion to ordain female bishops, and apparantly based their reasoning on "what the bible says", rather than relying on good old knowledge & reason to inform their vote. Odd that the laity's interpretation of the bible would be so at odds with the bishops & clergy of the church who were in favour of the motion by the required two thirds majority..

It's a bit odd that the head of the church can be a woman ie the Queen, but Bishops can't be. Personally I am glad I no longer care.
