"Via Media Urges Closer Scrutiny of Bishop-elect Lawrence"

All of this is well within the language of General Convention resolution B033. The resolution "urges restraint," but still leaves the decisions in the hands of the bishops and Standing Committees. So, these groups appeal to those bishops and Standing Committees.

I think the argument about one's commitment to ordination vows is pertinent. However, I don't know how compelling it will be when the person hasn't yet taken those vows. This may well once again requirement measurement by behavior after rather than prevention of the ordination.
