"But duplicitous thinking is the inevitable fruit of compromise. And those remaining Anglican yet seeking to identify as Catholic must swallow it because the official provision for those unable to accept the ordination of women is based on a model that assumes you are sexist not theologically principled. Its purpose (in their eyes) is to help you avoid the ministry of validly ordained women not allow space for anyone to claim they are not in fact validly ordained.
Hence opponents must write to their new woman bishop, thereby acknowledging her authority over them at the very outset, to politely request permission to then avoid her ministry… Hardly a Catholic solution to a serious problem. It might work for misogynists but how could it possibly appease a truly Catholic soul?"
