In the weeks after General Convention, one could often hear criticisms of one of the most memorable results, Resolution B012, and behind it, the idea of a split decision, of impaired communion. Some would say that accounts of the results were too positive, as if this new state constituted an ecclesiological advance instead of making the best of a rum show. Well, of course the outcome is problematic — impaired communion is, after all, impaired!
