"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

The Die is Cast! The Episcopal Church has officially thumbed it's nose at the world-wide communion.

Tonight the blogger Baby Blue is reporting that the House of Bishops has passed a controversial resolution (already passed by the House of Deputies) that effectively does away the oft-ignored moratorium on same-sex blessings and the ordination of non-celibate gay persons. This quasi-moratorium had been enacted three years ago at the insistence of many of the Anglican world's primates.

99 Bishops voted in favor of the resolution
45 Bishops voted against the resolution
2 Bishop abstained

69% yes
31% no
