You can read the general motions here and the motions on sexuality there.
Re Motion 8B: How does one denounce alll unbiblical actions yet promote gay marriage? How embarrassing.
Perhaps they are using Screwtape’s bible.
seems like it was held over for procedural issues
Procedural reasons? A revisionist Dean suggested that the COI Canons (on the basis of which the first resolution was drafted) contradicted a marriage rite of the COI liturgy. On this basis, the first motion was extraordinarily ruled out of order and the subsequent two withdrawn by their proposers. This caused some reaction in the Synod – and was greeting with jeers and claps. The motion, technically redrafted, is now to be debated tomorrow. Truly chaotic.
Update with some slightly different facts (notably that the point of order was raised by a revisionist Bishop) http://www.peter-ould.net/2012/05/11/irish-general-synod-does-a-u-turn/
The Amended Motion is being debated by the Church of Ireland General Synod now. To some extend news can be followed on Twitter using the hashtag #gscoi here
