The Episcopal Church House of Bishops passed a resolution endorsing the development of liturgy for same-sex unions and “marriages.”
Christopher Johnson has a sharp eye and noticed something missing in the final resolution – the conscience clause which was in earlier versions.
The reaction of Dan Martins, an Episcopalian who is hardly a fire-breather:
This convention (when the Deputies concur with the Bishops tomorrow) has abrogated every positive gesture it has made toward the Anglican Communion since 2003. Everything we did three years ago in response to the Windsor Report is down the drain. . . .
This is a dark day. It is a day that will live in infamy.
