Final text of B033 as passed by Bishops

Trying to verify I have the exact text of what passed in the House of Bishops. I can't get into the ECUSA legislation table at the moment.

Here's what Anglican Mainstream has posted, along with the (rough) vote total:

The Resolution which passed by roughly 70-30 in the House of Bishops:

Resolved that 75th General Convention receive and embrace the Windsor
Report invitation to engage in a process of healing and reconciliation and call upon Standing Committees and bishops with jurisdiction to exercise restraint by not consenting to the consecration of any candidate to the episcopate of those whose manner of life presents a challenge to the larger church and will lead to further strains on communion.

Note it is being reported that the Network Bishops have left the HoB and are working on a minority report. We'll post news as we get it. And we'll also keep trying to verify the B033 text that the Deputies will be voting on.

Note: reading the latest Stand Firm blog, it looks like the Deputies are arguing over how / whether to allow this on the floor. Wow.
