Prologue
Bishop Snowden referred to the Motion of the National Executive Council which requested that the Task Force be discharged, that the House of Bishops be requested to take appropriate action on the report, and that consultations to consider the existing documents be held between the Churches involved.
The question arose as to what is actually meant by "recognition." The report does not provide specific recommendations for action. Licensing must be done by a liturgical act.
Concern was expressed that one thing is said to the United Church and something quite different is said to the Roman Catholic Church.
The view was expressed that change will come through liturgies and it is, therefore, important that any altering of liturgies be carefully considered.
Text
That this House express its appreciation to the Joint Anglican/United Churches Task Force on Mutual Recognition of Ministers.
While some members of the House might wish to express disappointment that the outcome of the Task Force's work is not an advance on the existing situation, yet we are all aware of the diligence with which the Task Force struggled over a long period - with this most difficult subject - and we express our thanks.

Text
That this House of Bishops believes that at the heart of the Christian Faith stands our conviction that every person has been made in the image of God. Therefore we uphold the Biblical imperative to respect the diginity of every human being and we reject all forms of hatred, bigotry and racism;
We deplore recent expressions of anti-semitism in Canada and call upon all the people of our Church to reject the same;
Moreover as the Anglican Bishops of Canada we believe that all forms of racism are repugnant to the Christian conscience and violate our sense of the worth of every person;
We urge the members of our Church, the community at large, and our political and educational leaders to renounce racism and to work towards the eradication of all expressions of it in our society, and urge support for all who suffer from this kind of outrage. CARRIED #27-6-83

Seconder
Archbishop Garnsworthy
Prologue
Moved by Bishop Short
Seconded by Bishop Stiff
That Archbishops and Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada are agreed that through the General Synod of 1975 the Church has expressed its will that women should be ordained to the Priesthood.
It is also agreed that the Conscience Clause which was approved at the time of this change in policy should continue in force. The House, however, deplores the misapplication which some members of the clergy and laity have made of the Clause. The refusal to read a Si Quis, to receive Holy Communion from a woman priest who is not the Celebrant at the Eucharist, to object to a woman ordained or not, publicly reciting the Divine Office, leading in prayers, preaching, or reading lessons, simply on the grounds that she is a woman, are not supported by the Conscience Clause. No action which questions the integrity of any priest or postulant on sexist grounds can be defended by an appeal to the Clause.
The House honours women priests, upholds them in its prayers, and desires only that God's will may be done in and through all priests whether female or male.
Text
That the following words in paragraph two be omitted:
The refusal to read a Si Quis, to receive Holy Communion from a woman priest who is not the Celebrant at the Eucharist, to object to a woman ordained or not, publicly reciting the Divine Office, leading in prayers, preaching, or reading lessons, simply on the grounds that she is a woman, are not supported by the Conscience Clause. CARRIED #6-6-83
Notes
It was agreed that the Amendment to Motion #49 in the Convening Circular proposed by Archbishop Garnsworthy should be the concluding paragraph of the Motion.
Bishops Short and Stiff withdrew their original Motion and proposed the following:
"That the following statement of the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada concerning the Conscience Clause June 1983, be presented to the General Synod:
`The Archbishops and Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada are agreed that through the General Synod of 1975 the Anglican Church of Canada has expressed its will that women may be ordained to the Priesthood.
It is also agreed that the Conscience Clause which was approved at the time of this change in policy should continue in force. The House, however, deplores the misapplication which some members of the Church have made of the Clause.
No action which questions the integrity of any priest or postulant on grounds of sex alone can be defended by an appeal to the Clause.
The House honours women priests, upholds them in its prayers, and desires only that God's will may be done in and through all priests whether female or male.
Christian love cannot be legislated, but needs to be practised and demonstrated more effectively in order to realize the community which belongs in the Body of Christ'." CARRIED
