Kendall Comment #8: Bishop of Arizona comments on D025

The Bishop of Arizona

This afternoon we had our first controversial action. Deputies passed resolution DO 25 which essentially reaffirmed that the ordination process (including that of bishop) was open to all people. This was a movement away from the “restraint” of last convention’s famous B033. Although BO33 was not exactly overturned (it will take an election of an openly gay person to make that happen, which frankly is not likely to happen anytime soon), this resolution was a defacto repudiation of that stance. When it came time for House of Bishop’s to act, we concurred with the House
of Deputies 99 to 45.
