Female bishops no issue for islanders

The Island's Bishop Robert Paterson says he wouldn't be surprised if his next in line was female.

He attended the consecration of the UK's first woman bishop on Monday morning along with his Chaplain Margaret Burrow. 

Libby Lane became the Church of England's first ever female bishop in a ceremony in York Minster. 

Bishop Robert believes Manx society is accepting of women in positions of power, citing Clare Christian's appointment as President of Tynwald, one of the highest offices in public life.

Speaking in December, the bishop said there would be no issue with a woman bishop succeeding him.
