Canadian Anglicans vote “no” on same-sex blessings

The vote to explicitly allow Canadian Anglican clergy to perform same-sex blessings was defeated by a very small margin by the bishops of the church. The lay and clergy votes both supported its passage.

The vote at the Canadian Church’s General Synod was announced as:

“Laity 78 / 59 Passed

Clergy 63 / 53 Passed

Bishops 19 / 21 Failed

Motion Fails”

The Canadian Church has this story posted on its website.

We’ll be updating this report as more news becomes available.
