The Rt. Rev. Linda Nicholls reported that Resolution C010 [Persecution and Marginalization of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Persons] was received after the deadline for regular resolutions. As it was related to the sexuality discussion, she asked if Synod wished to consider the motion. The Primate, noting that a 2/3 majority was required, polled the House. The House indicated its desire to consider the motion. Act 74
That this General Synod:
1. Deplore any legislation calling for punishments for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons and their supporters and encourage our partners in jurisdictions with such legislation to do the same; and
2. Request the Anglican Church of Canada at all levels to embrace the outcast and stand against the abuse and torment of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons.
