We’ve created an Excel Spreadsheet with the details of the Duncan Deposition Vote. This way you can sort the results by diocese, name, vote, position, etc.
We’ve revised the spreadsheet this morning to add a few more absent diocesans we missed last night, and to clarify which dioceses are vacant. The second and third pages of the spreadsheet are entirely new.
The second page lists every TEC diocese, and how the bishops in that diocese voted.
The third page was my attempt, using Louie Crew’s House of Bishops data, to list the TOTAL number of bishops that were entitled to vote at the HoB meeting. If my understanding is correct, I came up with 290 eligible bishops. Only 127 bishops attended the HoB meeting, not even 50% of eligible bishops.
You’ll find all the details here:
The revised table makes one thing clear: the diocesan bishops of ONLY 56 TEC dioceses — exactly 50% of the 112 TEC dioceses — voted YES to depose Duncan. The bishops of the remaining 56 dioceses either voted No, abstained, were absent, or the see of the diocese was vacant.
Also, something else is very striking, a few dioceses had extraordinary of clout in the vote. A mere 6 dioceses (Los Angeles, New York, Washington, Connecticut, Chicago, North Carolina and Maine) accounted for 21 of the 88 YES votes (nearly 1/4 of the total Yes votes). Wow.
Comments and quetions welcomed, but I’ll be traveling for 2 days and will not be able to reply quickly. –elfgirl
