I hardly need add anything to this to show how barking mad Christians are—even when they’re the supposedly tame UK Christians. From the Bristol Tab via Damian Thompson’s website at the Telegraph:
Bristol University Christian Union have forbidden women from speaking at their weekly meetings.
The move reflects the recent decision by the Church of England synod to reject the introduction of female bishops, consequently ignoring the last century of the equal rights movement.
Having spent ‘a lot of time exploring this issue, seeking God’s wisdom on it and discussing it together’ the CU executive committee decided that it was no longer appropriate for women to teach alone at weekly meetings, or be the main speaker at the CU weekend away.
Women are now also banned from speaking alone at the group’s mission weeks.
However, it’s not all gloom and doom: women are allowed to speak as a double act with their husbands. Those who are unmarried must remain silent.
