Bishops Begin Debate on B-033 -Bishop says the House has a "spiteful spirit"

Gene Robinson says that new resolution does not prohibit the election and consecreation of partnered gay bishops in the Episcopal Church.

The next bishop thinks "caution" is appropriate (as opposed to stop doing it until there is a consensus in the Communion which is what Windsor requests.

Now a new substitution is being introduced on the floor.

The PB is calling for a roll call vote on this substitution.

Bishop is now saying that there is a "spiteful spirit" in the House of Bishops.

PB is saying that the wording must be exact and must not be a broad point of view.

House of Bishops is now going into a five minute recess to draft the language of the substitution.
