Church of England set to vote on women bishops

LONDON (AP) - The Church of England is expected to vote today on whether women should be allowed to enter its top ranks as bishops. The Church's national assembly, known as the General Synod, is meeting in York, northern England.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby told BBC, "the votes I think are there." Two years ago, similar legislation failed to reach a two-thirds majority among the General Synod, despite approval from bishops and clergy.
