Women bishops.

This is the final and last work-in-progress note and in fact signals literally my last ever post.

I fear to tread in an area that bares no relation on my life nor any member of my immediate family. Though in a way I suppose it does have as we have two children in a Catholic school. I am talking about religion.

Religion is one of those areas where, I believe, one either 'believes' or one does not. While I myself am a staunch atheist the older of our three boys is, at age 11, agnostic. Our middle boy has so far professed nothing on this matter and the youngest is too young to have any thoughts on the matter. My wife is of the same view as I whereas my first wife was a practicing catholic. My two boys from that first marriage have no strong views on the matter.

I have never forced my own views on my children believing they will come to a conclusion one way or the other via their own findings and whatever side they lean towards it will be with my complete and unfettered blessing. I have found during my almost 50 years of life that is it exactly that which those who steep themselves in religious theory  do not allow. That being those with opposing views. This is particularly true  within the catholic faith as I found out  when first meeting my now ex-wifes parents and again later when meeting her much more staunch beliving  grandparents. (No, that in and of itself had no bearing on the eventual outcome of that marriage).

But, I digress.

Once again in the news is the act of making women  bishops. With both sides of the debate giving up their reasons  as to why such a radical thing should or should not be allowed. Forget for now we are living through the 21st century and let us instead focus on some writings  written many centuries ago during a time when the female form was not in any way shape or form comparable to that of the male counterparts. Forget that thought as to my mind religion itself of any flavour has no part at all to play in the modern world but let us play along for the sake of debate.

It appears to me to be one sentence within their popular reading material known as the Bible that seems to have both sides at loggerheads. This being from I Timothy 2, 12: which says "I do not allow a woman to have authority over a man." Which some are saying trumps whatever good the ordinated  women  could possibly do. To my, admittedly closed, mind  that is as closed a mind as a  closed mind can be.

Hi there. Almost one year later you closed I found your site. Believe me, I am amazed by you. You, the person. You have great writing skills and your "In the end, in the end, in the end, NOTHING REALLY matters" approach is very appealing, specially because I tend to think along the same lines.

I'm not saying you should start writing again just for the sake of it but you really should start writing again, even if just for the sake of it.
