Alabama Episcopalians have rejected the denomination's approval of its first openly gay bishop in New Hampshire.

In protest adopted a restricted budget that reduces funding sent to the New York headquarters.

The decision came Saturday at a diocese meeting in Birmingham. The vote was 208 to 140.

As you may recall, the Mississippi chapter voted to support the church just last month.
