D025 - as predicted

There isn't any need to post on this as the result was a foregone conclusion, but, the HOD accepted the HOB's revision of D025.

Bishops: 78 deputations in favour and 21 opposed with nine deputations divided (therefore counts as a no vote).

Some blogs and other news sources are stating that this repeals B033: it does not. Do not confuse fact with fiction. When we see a GLBT person elected and receive consent, then we'll know what D025 really has done.

The presiding bishop, responding to a question from the bishop of Kentucky said, "I do not believe D025 repudiates the moratroia -- 'exercising restraint' continues.

And there you have it folks.
