Resolutions to the Convention of the Diocese of California
(hat tip titusonenine: linked above)

3. Dissent from B033Resolved, the 157th Convention of the Diocese of California dissents from Resolution B033 of the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church as inconsistent with Title III, Canon 1, Sec. 2 of the Canons of the Episcopal Church and our baptismal promise to respect the dignity of every human being; repents of the continuing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people that B033 represents; and strongly urges the Standing Committee and Bishop of the Diocese of California to refuse to discriminate unjustly against bishops-elect for any reason.

EXPLANATIONTitle III, Canon 1, Sec. 2 of the Canons of the Episcopal Church states: “No person shall be denied access to the discernment process for any ministry, lay or ordained, in this Church because of race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, marital status, sexualorientation, disabilities or age, except as otherwise provided by these Canons. No right to licensing, ordination, or election is hereby established.”

More proof, as if any were needed, that there is no turning back for the revisionists.  The clarity just keeps coming.

Pathetic. I truly feel sorry for these people,  they are so occupied with their sexuality they know nothing else. How many gaysexual resolutions did they manage to pass at last GC? I lost track.  And now they are at it again.
The message couldn’t be clearer. Unity and the common good of the Anglican Communion be damned.

This resolution is a redundant victimization piece of work that has been said and written a thousand times over and approved and canonized for the last 40 years. How about coming up with something new?
