Comments: General Synod - electronic voting

At least one VERY notable name on the clergy abstain list for 514...

Fascinating: on a quick count the vote on the Archbishops' amendment saw 29 laywomen vote for, 49 laywomen against, and 3 laywomen abstain; 5 clergywomen vote for, 20 clergywomen vote against, and 2 clergywomen abstain. There being no female bishops, one can't count the women's vote amongs those votes, but I can hear the cry now; if there weren't any female clergy, this amendment would have passed, and if women couldn't have representation in church government at all, it might have got a nice strong majority.
