Roamin' Catholic - Sam PF's Journal
Best wishes for the next steps in your journey. I'm going through a somewhat similar process myself with the C of E; I'm frankly disgusted with some of the recent pronouncements of the Archbishop of York on equal marriage, and following the decision-making process regarding the Anglican Covenant has been quite depressing, too. The bishops seem to have been systematically loading the dice in their favour by, for instance, encouraging diocesan offices to send pro-Covenant videos and other materials to their synod members (using mailing lists the diocesan offices control) without affording opponents of the Covenant the same facility. I'd join TEC if I could, but their nearest congregation being in Paris, I may well end up moving to the MCC or, failing that, the Quakers. I'm making one final attempt at getting our parish to sign up for Inclusive Church before I make up my mind, but so far, it's not looking too promising.

See, with the C of E it at least seems like there's a shot, there's a significant faction committed to a more inclusive approach. But yeah, the other side seems to be in the driving seat at the moment.
Good luck with it, and with your own decision and journey.
