Motions on Human Sexuality fail to come before Synod

The Bishops’ Motion 8A on Human Sexuality did not come before the General Synod on a point of order. After submissions from several speakers, it was ruled that there was doubt as to whether motion 8A constituted a change of doctrine which would necessitate bringing a bill before Synod.

Following this ruling by The Archbishop of Armagh, the proposer (Archbishop of Dublin) and seconder (Bishop of Down and Dromore) withdrew the motions 8A and 8B altogether.

The motions are outlined here.
