THE ONLY UNEQUIVOCALLY INCLUSIVE CHURCH

The Open Episcopal Church ( OEC)  issues a strong call this evening to all Church of England female and male clerics to join the only comprehensively inclusive church. Having consecrated the first woman bishop for England in 2003, for Wales in 2007 and for Scotland last year, the OEC represents the only progressive, modern  and socially relevant church of its generation. Life is too precious to waste one's opportunity to minister in a reactionary, failing institution that is one of the last remaining bastions of prejudice and discrimination.
