Lady bishops

Commenting on the consecration of Britain’s first female Anglican bishop Libby Lane, Portuguese theologian and priest Anselmo Borges said it was now just a question of time for the Catholic Church to follow suit. “Sooner or later this discrimination has to end,” he said. “Jesus did not discriminate.” Still, the path promises to be fraught. Rev. Lane’s consecration was briefly held up by a fellow priest, described as a serial protester.
