Anglican Church votes against same-sex unions

Canadian Anglican delegates meeting in Winnipeg have voted against blessing same-sex unions, despite the majority of members actually being in favour of the motion.
“The laity voted in favour, the clergy voted in favour, but it was the House of Bishops that narrowly decided not to approve the motion that was before the members of Synod,” Reverend Canon Christopher Pratt, of the Diocese of Huron, told CTV Newsnet on Sunday.
“In total point of fact, there was a majority of members of Synod that voted in favour (of the motion).”
The bishops voted against the motion 21-19.
