I don't recall anyone saying it was a position in the Aaronic Priesthood; rather, they said it was an office in the Aaronic Priesthood. I believe this is beyond all dispute. If you have evidence to the contrary, I'd love to see it. > Those who receive it otherwise (not of Aaron's lineage), receive > it as an office in the Melchizedek Priesthood. I have never heard of "bishop" being considered a Melchizedek Priesthood office, except in the sense that the Aaronic Priesthood is a subset of the Melchizedek Priesthood, and therefore all Aaronic Priesthood offices (deacon, teacher, priest, and bishop) form a part of the structure of the Melchizedek Priesthood. Obviously, current Church practice specifies that any bishop hold the office of high priest, but that doesn't negate the fact that "bishop" is an Aaronic Priesthood office.
