Because the house of laity should be representative of the church at large, and this is clearly not the case at the moment.

I am currently a Churchwarden in a small parish in Essex. We have a female Vicar, and a female Archdeacon. I was shocked by the recent decision, and offended on behalf of our many female clergy.

Because our present House of Laity is clearly unable or unwilling to represent the opinion of the vast majority of lay people in the Church of England. We cannot have confidence in them as our legislators.

As an Ordinand in the CofE. I a, shocked and saddened at the vote and the injustice of equality (the message this gives to others creating injustice in the world) and the negative message this gives society, particularly as it' is not showing the amazing beauty and grace which is shown in Jesus.
