Watch it all.
The next motion in the series concerns the per cent support require to pass the motions concerning SSB. If a matter is doctrinal the canons require 2/3 majority, in each house, at two Synods. The coming motion sets the bar at 60% at this Synod. You can argue that motions 3, 4 below are not doctrinal, which is the approach the movers are taking. However, it is hard to accept that stating something is consistent with the creeds is not a doctrinal statement, and allowing Diocese local option is not a fundamental change in present ecclesiology.
The up coming motions:
2. That resolutions 3 and 4 below be deemed to have been carried only if they receive the affirmative votes of 60 per cent of the members of each Order present and voting, and if a vote by dioceses is requested, only if they receive the affirmative votes of 60 per cent of the dioceses whose votes are counted.
3. That this General Synod resolves that the blessing of same-sex unions is consistent with the core doctrine of the Anglican Church of Canada.
4. (The resolution deferred from 2004) That this General Synod affirm the authority and jurisdiction of any diocesan synod, with the concurrence of its bishop, to authorize the blessing of same-sex unions.
5. That this General Synod requests the Council of General Synod to consider revision of Canon 21 (On Marriage) including theological rationale to allow marriage of all legally qualified persons and to report back to General Synod 2010.
