A New Era Of Equality

The Presbyterian Church (USA) has just ratified Ordination Amendment 10-A, which allows churches to ordain gay clergy, elders, and deacons if they so choose. The ruling becomes effective July 10. This is a great day in our denomination, joining the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America in God's overwhelming grace. Justice has been done today.

Update: My commentary on this momentous occasion is posted on Bilerico.

Right on! This is certainly not the Presbyterian church of old that I grew up with in Boise. I'm a happy boy!
