Thank you for telling us some of your background. I appreciate you taking the trouble to do so.
Are you suggesting that the women Anglican "Priests" have valid orders?
As the Young Fogey has written, I am Anglican. We believe that we do have apostolic succession in our orders.
Just what is the real history of womens "ordination" in the Anglican Church? I mean no disrespect here I really don't know.
YF has covered some of it well. There have been Anglican deaconesses for a good while and that is what Florence Li Tim Oi was when the Bishop, in emergency circumstances, ordained her to provide the Sacraments for people who were under Japanese control during WWII. Since you did not know any of the real story, what source was it, may I ask, for labels like "feminazi" or "dress up" please? It is much more complicated and messy with real people who percieved a vocation and others who did not think it possible and real conflicts and more.
All I do know is men are Priests women are nuns and that is that and the tradition can not be changed because the modern world thinks it's time to move on.
That is from your religious background and experience and the RC that says it can't be changed. But there are those who disagree with the RC and they are people who have reasons and thought and belief; they are not sterotypes or labels.
Just for information's sake, there are a number of groups of Anglican/Episcopal religious orders including Benedictines and Franciscans.
Again, thank you for telling some of your story.
I have to go do some things right now, but perhaps we may continue this later.
