from episcopalchurch:

"Meanwhile, in the Diocese of Albany, Bishop William Love said in a pastoral letter that the diocese anticipated that the state of New York might some day allow same-gender marriage and, in 2008, passed two canons barring diocesan recognition of such relationships.

"Canon 16.1 'specifically bars any other union' than that between a man and a woman, Love said,'even if they be recognized in other jurisdictions.' This stance, he said,'is in agreement with the mainstream of the worldwide Anglican Communion and the wider church.' The canon says diocesan clergy 'shall neither officiate at, nor facilitate, nor participate in, any service, whether public or private' involving a same-gender marriage.

"Canon 16.2 bars the use properties of the diocese, parishes and other Episcopal-related bodies within the diocese for any marriage ceremonies other than those for a man and woman."

Four for, two against.

I think they are confusing "solemnize" with "sodomize"
