BREAKING: Panel of Reference . . . Does Something and Backs Ft. Worth

Yes, I know. It’s shocking. And I do hope you’re sitting down if you haven’t heard. The Panel of Reference (of whom I’ve been mildly critical) has actually . . . done something. Not only that, they have backed the Diocese of Ft. Worth and put in their place those who would crack down on the diocese for their refusal to accept the validity of women’s ordination.

They even were so specific as to say refusal to ordain women is NOT grounds to withhold consents from a bishop-elect.

The report and the diocese’s grateful response may be found here.

Now I think I need to go out and get some fresh air.
