“The General Synod of the Anglican Church of Australia has been petitioned by the majority of its delegates, expressing regret that the House of Bishops failed to clearly affirm the teaching of Christ on marriage.

The rare move follows the statement in support of Jesus’ teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman, which received majority support of clergy and laity yesterday but did not receive the support of the majority in the smaller House of Bishops. …”

From which also has the text of the Petition.
