No Anglican Covenant: Church of England diocese of Sodor and Man Vote Against the Covenant

Sodor and Man Vote Against the Covenant

¨The Church of England Diocese of Sodor and Man has just voted on whether to send the Anglican Covenant back to the General Synod for final approval. As 10 English dioceses have done before it, the diocesan synod voted against the Covenant.

Of the 44 dioceses, 11 have voted against the Covenant, and 7 have voted for it.

Recall that majority votes are required both of clergy of laity for the measure to pass. The voting was as follows: Bishops—1 for, 0 against, 0 abstentions; Clergy—5 for, 12 against, 0 abstentions; Laity—21 for, 15 against, 1 abstention. HERE
