Bishops are Nice People

Over to Ekklesia for this comment!

A taster: It should be conceded that, despite accusations of bullying (and indeed many MPs have faced similar accusations) bishops are in the main nice people. Indeed, bishops are so nice, that if they encountered arrangements in other parts of the world which allowed an undemocratic, external institution to parachute into a Parliament their own appointees, who can only be from one section of the country, of one gender, and from one particular strand of one religion – they would surely condemn it as profoundly unjust and corrupt.
It's just a shame that here in the UK, they defend such arrangements in the name of Christianity.
