Welby-wokery and Weddings

Dear Editor,

Your recent correspondent suggested that the latest ‘Welby-wokery’ emanating from General Synod has eliminated the ordination of women, as the Church of England does not officially know what a woman is. More than that, it has also de facto legalised gay weddings in church buildings. Imagine an emboldened vicar holding a ‘marriage’ service between two men. The cleric is summoned by the bishop shortly afterwards to explain this action. The vicar’s defence? “When the Church has no definition of a woman, how can you prove that one of the parties married was not a woman?”

Yours etc,

J Clayton
