A Female Archbishop of Canterbury?

It had to happen eventually: sources within the Church of England state a female Archbishop of Canterbury is definitely "a possibility":

The Church of England raised the prospect of its first female Archbishop of Canterbury yesterday [Jan. 16] in proposals aimed at smoothing the path towards women bishops. The proposals by a working party of the House of Bishops said all episcopal posts should be open to women if, as is expected, the historic reform is introduced by the General Synod in about seven years...The new report, by a group headed by the Bishop of Guildford, the Rt Rev Christopher Hill, said barring women from Canterbury could fall foul of the Sex Discrimination Act.

First, the power of the Crown gave the UK Calvinist bishops and soon, bishopesses.

Oh, and it appears ECUSA is about to appoint another Druid as chief administrator. How long before Anglicanism's remaining Christians find the escape hatch?

Oh, that's the AAC's analysis, that these candidates are no better than Frank Griswold (whom most trads refer to as a "Druid").
