UK: Misogynistic religious group practices misogyny!
Bristol University Christian Union have forbidden women from speaking at their weekly meetings.
The ban 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 is not appropriate for women to teach alone at weekly meetings, or be the main speaker at the CU weekend away.
Women are 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.
“Some of the women members protested.” said a spokesman for the Christian Union. “But we stoned them and they went away.”
