Notes
"Canadian Anglican bishops have responded to General Synod's provisional vote on same-sex marriage in starkly different ways: a number have called for prayers, some announced they will now allow religious weddings for same-sex couples and others have expressed anxiety about unity in the church". "The impact of the vote was undeniable. Some bishops and members of their dioceses were noticeably absent at the meeting's closing worship July 12 [2016], including those who had walked out after it was announced that the same-sex marriage motion had passed".
