Response From the American Anglican Council to The Vote
I couldn’t say it better myself, and won’t try:

The Episcopal Church USA has shattered the Anglican family. With the approval of Canon Gene Robinson’s election by the Episcopal House of Bishops, the Episcopal Church has departed from the historic Christian faith. We reject this action of our Church.

We now face a profound pastoral crisis that will leave many Episcopalians searching for an answer for the deep pain that has been inflicted upon them. They are experiencing an overwhelming sense of loss and in some cases betrayal by this General Convention.

In response to this tragedy, the Anglican mainstream Bishops in the Episcopal Church have said that they will appeal to the Archbishop of Canterbury as well as the Primates of the Anglican Communion for Godly direction and emergency intervention. The majority of the Primates have already said that they “anticipate convening an extraordinary meeting at which they too will respond to the actions of General Convention.” Many Bishops will also be scheduling special diocesan conventions to determine how they will respond, as dioceses, to this devastating unilateral action of the Episcopal Church. In early October in Plano, Texas, the AAC will hold a pivotal meeting of Anglican mainstream parishes in order to chart our future.

The AAC is committed to remaining part of the Anglican Communion and will find a way for mainstream Anglicans in the Episcopal Church to stay in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury. We call on all Christians to join us now in prayer, seeking God’s word and will for the Anglican Communion.

We stand united with hundreds of millions of Christians worldwide in proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord. This simple, profound and life-transforming truth cannot be changed by any human vote.

The Vote is Stalled

I hope this isn’t true. No matter how you feel about the vote, this isn’t the way for it to be stopped.
