Resolution I Passes
Clergy and lay deputies overwhelmingly approved passage of Resolution I.
Clergy and lay deputies voted overwhelmingly to approve Resolution I on November 3 at the City Center Marriott in Pittsburgh. The final vote was 97 aye, 14 nay, and 3 abstentions in the clergy order and 117 aye, 40 nay, and 7 abstentions in the lay order. In debate, the original resolution was replaced with a substitute. The resolution, as passed is below. The text of the original resolution is available here.
The approved resolution reads as follows:
RESOLVED, the 141st Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh confirms the actions of the Standing Committee taken on June 28, 2006, specifically (1) the withdrawal of consent for inclusion in the Third Province of the Episcopal Church (under Article VII of the Constitution of the Episcopal Church); and (2) the appeal to the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Primates of the Anglican Communion, and the Panel of Reference for immediate alternative Primatial oversight and pastoral care.

With a big tip of the elves pointy hat to our friends at Stand Firm.
Update: The Associated Press has a story here.
Forgive my ignorance, but I thought they had already done this??
In my humble...
A"mediated settlement" is NOT what is called for here...
I hope Bishop Duncan and others will unequivocally call for the REPENTANCE of the wayward; in line with Biblical principles in these matters.
There is no fellowship between light and darkness, between Christ and Belial...
The issues here remain very clearly defined. The only question is who is for the Lord and His Kingdom manifest in the true Body of Christ; and who is for "another gospel" constructed on the opinions of man and the doctrines of demons.
I appreciate your faithfulness and continued posting for the progress on these issues..
I was going to post something, but after what I was thinking as I posted my last one comment, I already have to go to confession, so I'll quit while I'm not in too deep.
You and ne both.
I can't even think lucidly about this topic, it so disgusts me, angers me, upsets me and disenfranchies me from what used to be my Church.
