Members of The Anglican Church of Canada will be grappling with the issue of whether or not to allow same-sex couples to marry.

The issue is to be voted on at the church’s six-day general meeting that opens today.

It’s in the form of a resolution that requires a “yes” vote from two-thirds of the hundreds of delegates in each of three orders – lay,clergy and bishops.

In February the group of bishops indicated that the threshold likely won’t be met.

Ottawa bishop John Chapman has already apologized to members of the gay community – and to those feeling “discouraged,angry, betrayed and hurt.”

Same sex marraige has been legal in Ontario since 2001, and across Canada since 2005.
