Still no new Anglican bishop

From Barbados-

After more than three hours of deliberations and three rounds of voting, the elective synod of the Anglican Church was still at a stalemate Thursday night in its effort to select a bishop for Barbados. 

A fourth attempt will be made.
Seventy-three clergy and 82 representatives of the laity cast ballots which again failed to secure the two-thirds majority required by either Dean Dr Jeffrey Gibson or Reverend John Rogers. 

The atmosphere at the Christ Church Parish Centre where the synod meeting took place was at times heavily charged, as both sides became very vocal in their views. 
In the first ballot of the evening, Rogers received 30 votes from the clergy and 59 from the laity while Gibson got 43 votes from the clergy and 23 from the laity.
