Abstract: Council of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada sets standards for resolutions on sexuality.
We have never fully understood Anglican polity, but the Council of the General Synod (CoGS) of the Anglican Church of Canada has decided that resolutions on "sexuality issues" will require a 60% majority for approval in either the General Synod or in individual dioceses. This is a less stringent requirement than is recommended by the Primate's Theological Commission: the commission urges that issues like the blessing of same-sex unions be decided by changes in canon law. Canon law changes require two-thirds majority at two successive synods. See the Anglican Journal for details.(Vol. I, xx, March 23, 2007 )
