PCUSA Assembly OKs Lifting Gay Ordination Ban

(Christianpost.com) — Leaders in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) narrowly voted Thursday to open ordination to partnered homosexuals.

This is the fourth time since 1997 that the General Assembly, the highest legislative body, has attempted to remove the ban against noncelibate gay and lesbian clergy. Each time, the measure was rejected by the denomination’s presbyteries.

A majority vote from the 173 presbyteries is required to ratify the overture.
