II. General Resources & Links
YET more links coming soon...! including Non-Anglican links
One, entitled "Bishop says diocese will study General Synod decisions" begins thus:
Leaders of the Diocese of New Westminster will have to study this week’s resolutions of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, and determine what the implications are for the diocese, Bishop Michael Ingham said Monday (June 25).
On Sunday the General Synod, which includes all the Canadian Church’s bishops and about 250 clergy and lay delegates from 30 dioceses, failed to agree with a resolution that would have had the General Synod “affirm” the authority and jurisdiction of diocesan synods and bishops to authorize the blessing of committed same sex unions.
The vote was extremely close, with the clergy and laity approving the motion, but the Church’s 40 bishops turning it down by 2 votes - 21 to 19.
However earlier in the Synod, a motion passed which resolved that the blessing of same-sex unions is “not in conflict with the core doctrine (in the sense of being creedal) of the Anglican Church of Canada.”
Some theologians and Canon lawyers at the Synod suggested that the effect of the two resolutions would not mean the diocese’s current practice has to stop.

The second, entitled "New Westminster Anglicans to continue blessing gay unions," starst this way:
Canada's first Anglican diocese to bless gay unions has withdrawn its request to be exempt from the national church's rules forbidding priests from performing same-sex ceremonies.
For the time being, however, it's "status quo," bishop Michael Ingham said Monday of the situation for B.C.'s New Westminster diocese.
Anglican churches in the diocese will keep sanctifying civil unions for same-gender couples in committed relationships. But "I have to go back to Vancouver and think about what it means to the diocese," Ingham said, adding he would listen to church community members and then make a statement "in a few weeks."
In a move that surprised church delegates heading into the general synod on Monday, Ingham backed off from asking the national church to allow the New Westminster diocese to let its priests continue blessing same-sex unions.
