Church of Canada Votes Down Gay Marriage then Reveres Vote


TORONTO (AP) -- A day after the Anglican Church of Canada narrowly voted not to authorize gay unions, questions about the integrity of the voting process emerged Tuesday, leading to a reversal of the result with the church approving the measure.

More than 200 delegates attending the six-day General Synod 2016 narrowly rejected the resolution Monday night after hearing from more than 60 speakers, most of them in favor of gay marriage.

However, on Tuesday - the last day of the triennial conference - some members stood up to say their ballot had not been recorded during voting late Monday, when the resolution failed to pass by a single vote.

If they "revered" the vote so much, why did they then reverse it?

Democracy itself is sacrifical upon the altar of abomination. Liberalism in a nutshell. At least the liars are exposing themselves as such.
