"I just received your September  issue. How curious that after the vote was taken and it was declared that the motion had been defeated, it was discovered that Archdeacon Michael Thompson's vote had not been counted ('Same-sex marriage motion passes', p. 1). Even more curious is [that] his one vote provided the necessary two-thirds majority needed to pass the motion. The curiosity heightens when the Rev. Danny Whitehead, Archdeacon Pierre Voyer and Ruth Sheeran all state that their votes were not counted. However, their votes were not included in the final count of 52. Having learned that the magic number of 52 had been reached, was it decided that their votes were not needed ?" "It's a done deal. Why wait until 2019 ? If democracy was indeed a tenet of the church, each parish would have a meeting to vote on this issue".
