Roll call votes on key issues: TLC 7.17.09 July 17, 2009

First published in The Living Church.

Resolutions D025 and C056 sparked three roll call votes during the House of Bishops’ sessions of the 76th General Convention in Anaheim, Calif.

The Rt. Rev. Kenneth Price, Bishop Suffragan of Southern Ohio, told the house on July 15 that the official tallies from the votes on D025 that rescinded the moratorium on gay bishops, on a motion offered by the Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe, Bishop of Northwestern Pennsylvania to discharge C056, and the final vote on C056 which authorized the collection and development of rites for the blessing of same-sex liturgies, would not be complete until the end of convention. The hand tallies taken by the six tellers at the meetings needed to be reconciled, he said.

Bishop Price reported that Resolution D025 was adopted by a vote of 99 yes, 45 no, 2 abstained.

The Rowe amendment was defeated on a vote of 94 no, 42 yes, 1 abstentions. Resolution D058 was passed on a vote of 104 yes, 30 no, 2 abstentions, Bishop Price said. .

Roll call votes are taken in the House of Bishops in order of seniority taken in order of consecration. The senior bishop present for the votes, the Rt. Rev. David Reed, retired Bishop of Kentucky, is Bishop 603 — the 603rd bishop consecrated to serve The Episcopal Church since its creation. The junior bishop is the Rt. Rev. J. Scott Mayer, Bishop of Northwest Texas — Bishop 1035 in order of consecration.

1. Fred Ayers - July 20, 2009

I am stunned at the number of bishops who voted no on D025 but voted yes on C056. Are they saying it is not all right to have gay bishops but it IS okay to bless same sex unions? Where is the logic? Did these bishops understand what they were voting on?
