I’ve been soliciting suggestions for a collective noun for bishops. So far we have:
a huddle
a sanctimone
a corsage
a rodomontade
a nuisance
a coffee-morning
a cascade
a flounce
Any more?

The correct collective noun is "bench", which means the obvious synonym for bishop is "bunder".

Also, work just added their suggestions:

The Bishop of Chichester maintains that that was just an accident, Ed. It's time to let it go.

A violation
A sin
A transgression
A glut
A venality
A pride
