The Church of England refused to offer a definition of a woman, arguing that recent developments required “additional care” when attempting to define the word.

“There is no official definition, which reflects the fact that until fairly recently it was thought that definitions of this kind were evident, as reflected in the marriage liturgy,” said senior bishop Rt Rev Robert Innes when asked to define the word, according to the GB News report.

Innes’ remarks came in response to a question posed by lay member Adam Kendry at the General Synod, who asked, “What is the Church of England definition of a woman?”

The Bishop argued that the definition of a woman was “obvious in itself”, but no longer had a simple answer.

The comments sparked widespread criticism, with GB News character Calvin Robinson arguing that offering a definition shouldn’t be difficult.

“The definition of ‘woman’ is not a complex moral issue,” she said. “It is a scientific and biblical truth. How can you trust someone who cannot tell the truth about such basic facts?”

The exchange comes as the debate over transgender issues continues to rage, most recently following the release of conservative commentator Matt Walsh’s documentary entitled “What is a Woman?”

The central issue in the US-based documentary has now spread to the UK, with followers of Member of Parliament and potential Prime Minister Penny Mordaunt asking her the same question on social media last week.

“Yes, I know. I’m a woman,” Mordaunt replied. “I am biologically a woman. If I have a hysterectomy or a mastectomy, I am still a woman. And I am legally a woman. Some people born male and who have undergone the gender recognition process are also legally female. That does NOT mean they are female. biological, like me “.
