Anglican Bishops defect to Rome

Three of the five Anglican Bishops of Ebbsfleet, Richborough, Fulham Winchester (Assistant) and Exeter (Assistant) who have resigned their posts in the Church of England  have been ordained into a specially designed church within the Roman Catholic Church, the so-called, 'Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham’.

Much has been made in the religious press of their defection and their reasoning, but it is another matter that concerns me.

Besides wondering why the almighty God of Abraham has given no direction on how his people should behave on a wide range of matters, despite millions of words in two or three blockbuster publications, I want to ask if their defection from the Anglican flock is treasonable?

It seems to me that these men are in effect saying that Her Majesty the Queen as head of the Anglican Church is holding a false position. That she is in fact an imposter whose position as 'Defender of the Faith' is untenable.

Off with their heads! Did they not consider it silly that the Church could have a female head but not have ordained lady Bishops? They surely though of that when they joined in the first place.

Wouldn't the simplest solution be to say that the whole lot of them are 'frauds' perpetuating a scam on a global scale?
