BREAKING: The Episcopal Church Weasels Out of Vote on Real Windsor Substitute Resolution

A substitute resolution (to the lame A161 resolution on gay bishops and same-sex blessings) which clearly complies with Windsor/Dromantine was introduced on the floor of the TEC General Convention House of Deputies. The chair ruled it unconstitutional and out of order, and a floor vote upheld that ruling. Here’s a live blog of the proceedings (if the server is holding up).

This is just sickening. The General Convention won’t even allow a vote on really complying with Windsor. I guess this is what “Holy Listening” looks like.

I don’t have the words to express how disgusted I am. I’ll probably post more on this later. But one comment on the above link captures someone else’s disgust quite succinctly:

After three years of being told that only GC could speak for ECUSA concerning Windsor, we now learn that GC can’t. This is completely dishonest.

I think there’s a term for that sort of thing, by the way – a “fix.”
