The Episcopal Café reports that USA Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has issued a 'partial restriction' on the ministry of the Bishop of Albany, William Love.

When similar events occurred in some US dioceses a decade ago, the most notable result was the spending of far too much time and money fighting about it.
