Update for Presbyterians and Gays

My recent post of Gay Marriage and the Presbyterian Church seems to be a little premature, but the gist of it has stayed the same. Last night, the PC USA changed their rules to allow gay and lesbian clergy to openly serve in ministry roles.

Though falling short of where I would have liked to see the church go, - recognizing gay unions - this is a very important step in the direction of equality. Soon, the forces of equality and justice will come over all of the mainstream Christian denominations as they realize that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality, but instead that is a recent and unscriptural interpretation of out of context scripture passages.
