Churchgoers in almost 300 parishes that disapprove of women priests may take advantage of Pope Benedict XVI’s offer to change denomination if their “flying bishops” lead the way.
“Flying bishops”, who provide “episcopal oversight” to parishes that cannot accept women priests.
“Those of us who are in the forefront of the prophetic call for a return to Biblical truth cannot close our eyes to the increasingly blatant disregard for the teaching of the Bible on family life,” wrote the archbishop. “The observation will destroy our witness if not firmly addressed. We cannot claim to be a Bible-believing church yet be selective in our obedience.”
