Is the Church right to ordain women as bishops?
The Church of England's ruling synod has decided that women should be ordained as bishops. What does this mean for the future of the Church?
The subject of ordaining women bishops has long been a contentious one for the Church, with many traditionalists opposing the move.
Traditionalists had sought exemptions from serving under women bishops, but were given minimal concessions, a move that may result in many leaving the Church.
Are you a clergyman or woman in the Church of England? What do you think of the Church's ruling? Are you worried about the possibility of a split in the Church?
