UPDATE: Church of England Will Not Allow Female Bishops

Last week the governing body of the Church of England voted against allowing women to become bishops. While the measure did receive the necessary two-third votes in the House of Bishops and the House of Clergy, the measure just fell short in the House of Laity.

Bishops who supported the measure are currently working to find a way to save the legislation in time for the next meeting of the General Synod in July 2013. A memo leaked to the Times of London indicates a plan for drafting simpler legislation, such as a clause, that could be proposed at that time. However, if a substantial plan is not discovered, the measure will have to start again in 2015.
