Females priests have welcomed fast-track legislation which could see women bishops selected in the Church of England by the end of the year.
358 in favour, 39 against, 9 abstentions. This means there will be a final debate and vote on WOMEN BISHOPS this JULY #yay
The Church of England could decide as early as July whether to appoint women bishops, but pockets of opposition remain.
Today the Church of England Synod is meeting to debate a crucial vote which, if supported, could see women Bishops in England by Christmas.
