Quote of the day

"The executive committee now wish to make clear that we will extend speaker invitations to both women and men, to all BUCU events, without exception. BUCU is utterly committed to reflecting the core biblical truth of the fundamental equality of women and men."

Bristol University Christian Union perform an impressive volte-face, having previously declared that women were banned from teaching at its events except in specific limited circumstances - and even then when joined by their husbands. Interesting that it's only after a storm of criticism that they seem to have acknowledged this "core biblical truth" - and also, of course, that a "core biblical truth" can have been ignored by all those who voted against women bishops...
