Act of 1644 – Act concerning Dissenting Voices in Presbyteries and Synods. 4th June 1644.

The Assembly thinks it necessar, if any member of Presbyteries or Synods shall finde in matters depending before them that the Moderator shall refuse to put any thing of importance to voices; or if they finde any thing carried by plurality of voices to any determination which they conceive to be contrary to the Word of God, the acts of Assembly, or to the received order of this Kirk, that in either of these cases they urge their dissent to be marked in the register; and if that be refused, that they protest as they would desire to be free of common censure with the rest; and the Assembly declares the dissenters to be censurable, if their dissent shall be found otherwise nor they conceived.
