article imagePresbyterian's General Assembly to consider redefining marriage

By Cynthia Trowbridge     Jul 7, 2010 in World
Minneapolis - As the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) meets this week one important subject they will be looking at is should the church redefine marriage to include same-sex couples and allow the ministers to perform same-sex weddings.
A new moderator was chosen, Cynthia Bolbach, an elder from National Capital Presbytery in Washington from six candidates. The moderator is the top leadership position for the assembly.
According to Bolbach was the only one who "expressed unqualified support for same-sex marriage." She said, “Who poses the greatest threat – Larry King, who’s been married seven times, or a gay couple [friends of hers] in Washington, D.C., who have been together for 62 years and who got married two weeks ago?”
In a vote for the further study of "gay marriage" on July 6 the vote was overwhelming to go ahead with the study. A minority voted "only marriage between a man and a woman is ordained by God." If approved there would have to be a change in their constitution that now defines marriage as "between a man and a woman " to read "between two people." reports if the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) allows the change they would become the largest denomination in the nation to allow same-sex marriage.
