Fling wide the doors?

The Church of England's decision this week to ordain women as bishops is already stirring talk of a mass exodus "across the Tiber" to communion with Rome. Anglican Bishop Andrew Burnham of Ebbsfleet suggested a situation like the one that followed the decision to ordain women as priests in 1992, although he was at pains to point out that the many who left (or will leave) did so out of "keenness to pursue Catholic unity and truth" according to Zenit. Funny they didn't become Catholic before the ordination of women.
