Same-sex vote only the first step for Anglican Church

From Alberta-

A vote on same sex marriage by the General Synod of the Anglican Church is just the start of a long process that will take years, says St. Barnabas Church in Medicine Hat.

The count at first indicated a rejection of the same sex marriage motion by one vote. An error was then discovered after delegates asked for a copy of the electronic voting records. The vote was then declared in favour of same-sex marriage.

“This actually does not change anything,” said Rev. Oz Lorentzen who came to St. Barnabas Church in May this year.

It is a “parliamentary process” and the General Synod voted on only the first reading of a proposed amendment, said Lorentzen.
