Church of England declined to define a woman, arguing that recent events require “extra caution” when attempting to define the word.
“There is no official definition, reflecting the fact that, until recently, definitions of this kind were considered self-evident, as reflected in the marriage liturgy,” Senior Bishop Rev. Robert Innes said when asked to define the word. to reports from GB News.
Innes’ remarks came in response to a question posed by layman Adam Kendry during the General Synod, who asked, “What is the definition of a woman in the Church of England?”
Bishop claimed that the definition of woman used to be “self-evident” but no longer had a simple answer.
The comments drew widespread criticism, with GB News spokesman Calvin Robinson arguing that it shouldn’t be difficult to define.
“Defining the term ‘woman’ is not a difficult moral issue,” he said. “This is scientific and biblical truth. How can you trust someone who cannot tell the truth about such elementary facts?
The exchange comes at a time when the debate about transgender issues continues to rage, most recently after the release of conservative commentator A documentary by Matt Walsh titled “What is a Woman?”
The central question in a documentary filmed in the US is now spread to the UKand followers of MP and would-be Prime Minister Penny Mordaunt asked her the same question on social media last week.
“Yes, I know. I am a woman”, Mordaunt replied. “Biologically, I am a woman. If I have a hysterectomy or a mastectomy, I am still a woman. And I’m legally a woman. Some people who are born male and go through the gender recognition process are also legally female. they are biological women, just like me.”
