"As we awaited a statement from the House of Bishops, I wanted you to know both my children (21 and 23 years of age) spoke to me after the vote and stated that they will not be returning to our church. ... My mother is a 78-year-old archdeacon who cannot believe we failed to affirm many of her parishioners once again, and my 79-year-old father, a cradle Anglican, walked away a while ago and will not return after this decision. Three generations of Anglicans gone or damaged. It's important that the national House of Bishops understands what this vote has done. Not the laity, not the clergy. The house". "As prolocutor of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario, I have to ask myself if I can be part of an institution that excludes. One that says some of my family, mu youth and many of my friends don't count. Some rise up to continue the fight for equality, others have given up and faded away. I'm not sure which I am yet".
