Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh to vote today whether to secede

Ann Rodgers in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

Those on both sides expect the Episcopal Diocese to vote today to secede from the U.S. denomination and join an Anglican province in South America — but with at least 17 of approximately 73 parishes choosing to remain in the Episcopal Church.

In the first of two required votes, last year the laity voted 118-58 and clergy voted 109-24 to secede. While some think a reversal is possible, no one is predicting it.
