Welby: Provisions in women-bishops Measure express ‘love’ to opponents

From The Church Times-

THE Archbishop of Canterbury has described the General Synod's provisions for those who are theologically opposed to the consecration of women to the episcopate as an "expression of love".

Archbishop Welby made his comments as he appeared alongside senior officials and members of the General Synod at Parliament's Ecclesiastical Committee, which was considering the Bishops and Priests (Consecration and Ordination of Women) Measure which had received final approval from the General Synod on Monday of last week (News, 18 July).

The former President of the Methodist Conference, Lord Griffiths of Burry Port, said that the inclusion of provisions would lead to "wider incomprehension to the public at large".
