Church council
against move to ordain women bishops


KOTTAYAM: The recent move by the
Church of England to allow ordination of women as bishops
has caused ripples among traditionalists in the Indian
church especially in this region, the seat of Syrian
Christianity, with top religious leaders opposing it
tooth and nail, asserting that episcopacy was not the
job of the fair sex.

As the historic decision of the Anglican Church, the
most influential Protestant congregation, created a
vertical split in the Anglican communion in Britain
and rest of the world, top church leaders here lost
no time in denouncing the move.

“It is not a question of faith but tradition.
Christianity extends all considerations to women. Women
are not inferior as they are equal before God,”
Council of Christian Churches of India (CCCI) President
Arch Bishop Stephen Vattappara told reporters.

“Equality does not mean that mother becomes a
father as both have distinct features and functions
and should be maintained as such,” he said here.

The CCCI, formed in 1973 as the Indian arm of the International
Council of Christian Churches and comprising Anglican,
Methodist, Presbyterian and Anglican orthodox churches,
declared its stand on the issue at its three-day national
assembly held in Kurici near here recently.
