Four Dioceses Say No to Covenant

Four Church of England dioceses have just voted against having their church adopt the Anglican Covenant. The dioceses of Leicester, Portsmouth, Rochester, and Salisbury have rejected the pact, making the score 10 dioceses against the Covenant and 5 dioceses for it. Thinking Anglicans has posted actual vote totals. Note that, for the resolution in favor of the Covenant to pass, majorities in both the clergy and laity votes were necessary.

This was a good day for opponents of the Covenant.
