I expect this will be heavily condemned by other denominations within Christianity then.
Not likely -- apart from the Catholic and Orthodox churches, most other denominations have female clergy and superiors. When I was a United Methodist,
our District Superintendent was a woman.
I don't know what the Church of England's state in the UK is, but the American branch, the Episcopalians, have been torn apart by the liberalization
(read "modernization") of the church in the past twenty years, and will likely be mostly gone as a denomination in the next twenty, while
denominations that tend towards the traditional, like Pentecostals and Catholics, are growing or at least holding their own.
