BREAKING: Church of England to ordain women bishops

From the BBC:

"The Church of England's ruling body, the General Synod, has voted to confirm the ordination of women as bishops. But a national code to accommodate traditionalists was approved by the Synod, which was meeting in York. Some 1,300 clergy have threatened to leave the Church if safeguards are not agreed to reassure traditionalists. They made the threat in a letter to the archbishops of Canterbury and York, but critics say many of the signatories are retired rather than serving clergy."
