The 14th Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) by a close vote on May 8 rejected a move to add a fourth moratorium on issues related to divisions over human sexuality that would have asked for a "cessation of litigation" among member churches of the Anglican Communion involved in disputes over property. The ACC, however, said it "affirms" the recommendations of the Windsor Continuation Group (WCG) which included not just moratoria on the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of persons living in samesex unions, and cross-provincial interventions, but also "relational consequences" for those who breach them. The original text of the resolution used the word "notes," instead of "affirms." The word "notes" was used to reflect the "range of views" expressed by delegates in discernment groups, said the resolutions committee.
