Annotation by Robert:

For a long time, the Church of England was best known for its ‘vicar’ characters – mid 30s to late 60s men who were constantly slightly nervous, fond of tea, and prone to walking in on embarrassing situations. Nowadays, Church of England vicars tend more on the trendy side, which is at least apt for an institution that split from the Catholics and lost much of their dogma in the process.

Martin and I, naturally, approve of women being ordained as bishops, much in the sense that we approve of “electronic mail” and “jean trousers” and “the sand-wich”.
