breaking news… Sydney synod emphatically rejects move to bring women’s ordination back on the agenda.

Following on from my earlier post, just in from people on the ground at synod.

on the motion to introduce a debate at next year’s synod on the ordination of women to the priesthood, the votes were as follows:

Laity:
Yes 114 (32.7%)
No 235 (67.3%)

Clergy:
Yes 31 (15.8%)
No 165 (84.2%)

The clergy vote is refreshingly clear and the laity vote is pretty emphatic. Sydney has decided that this issue is already decided and it should be a long time before we see another vote on this issue.
