A New Hope

No, not that one. This is about the Church of England’s rejection today of a proposal that would have allowed women to become bishops.

Sarah Moon writes of her crushing disappointment at the news, but then she urges women to live in opposition to oppression:

It would be so easy to give up, and I know that’s what they hope for. They hope for a day when the oppressed follow their rules and stop preaching and prophesying. They hope for a day when the oppressed give up trying to be human, and settle into their “roles” as sex objects.

They hope…

But we hope for something different.
