From TOTAL ESSEX:
Leading clergy in Brentwood have warned the ordination of female bishops threatens to split the unity of the Church.
One such traditionalist is the vicar of Ingrave, the Rev Paul Hamilton, who insists his views were by no way sexist but instead theological.
While Mr Hamilton strongly believes in equality, he said: "The key to traditionalists is the fact we call God father and because Jesus was a man. The priest is pointing to Jesus, so the masculinity of priests is as symbolically important as there being bread and wine at communion rather than lemonade and biscuits."
COMMENT: Oh dear. And this man is in charge of stuff?
