At a secular meeting at Regent’s Park Mosque in London, a woman stands hijabbed.
Who can she be?
It’s unlikely that she’s a Muslim. That large cross round her neck is a bit of a giveaway.
Ah, yes! She’s none other than Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London, no less!
Of course, not all Anglicans are happy that a woman holds the post, and I’d wager that many of those who do are unhappy that “Bishop Sarah”, to use her Twitter handle, has seen it necessary to debase her female self and dhimmify the Church of England by doing a Jacinda Ardern.
No wonder the Church of England is held in contempt by many Anglicans, and other observers, these days, when elements within it seem to bend with every passing edict of the “politically correct”.
The lady prelate was at a function pressing for increased expenditure for security for London mosques in the wake of the Christchurch shooting.
The Archbishop of Canterbury was there to lend support for the Muslim demands (he didn’t find it necessary to grow a beard for the occasion, though), as was Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis (see and hear them on the video below).
Oh, and there was at least one other ordained Christian woman with a hijab-like garment covering her head.
Is this repugnant surrender of female church leaders (women’s rights activists within their own denominations, and largely on the left politically) to a misogynist creed really what “interfaith” understanding has come to?
It would be laughable, were it not so sad.
