Anglican Church of Canada votes against same-sex unions

TRUTHBOMB: HOORAY!!! Now if we get the other doctrine right!

ARTICLE: TORONTO — The Anglican Church of Canada narrowly voted against authorizing same-sex marriages Monday after nearly a week of passionate debates about blessing such unions at the church’s triennial conference.More than 200 delegates attending the six-day General Synod 2016 north of Toronto narrowly rejected the resolution after more than 60 speakers made their points, with most speaking in support of the resolution.Same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada since 2005, and Monday’s vote puts the Anglican Church — the third largest in Canada — out of step with most Canadians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who recently took part in a gay pride parade in Toronto.In order for the resolution to have passed, it required two-thirds support from each of three orders — the lay, clergy and bishops.
