PCUSA and Ordination of LGBT

Today, the Twin City Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church, USA took a historic vote (205-56-3) allowing for the ordination of LGBT persons, becoming the key 87th presbytery to do so.

I don’t know if there were any amendments to 10A, but here is the text that I found. If there were any amendments to 10A, please let me know.

The PC(USA) joins the United Church of Christ, The Episcopal Church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in allowing for the ordination of LGBT persons.

  1. Idols being raised up again and producing evil fruit.

    ”Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years. His mother’s name was Hephzibah. He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, following the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites. He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had destroyed; he also erected altars to Baal and made an Asherah pole, as Ahab king of Israel had done. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them. He built altars in the temple of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, “In Jerusalem I will put my Name.” In both courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts.” 2 Kings 21:1-5

    • The same thing was said when the ELCA adopted a similar measure. The “schism” to date is somewhere around 4-5% now. Hardly the backlash we were expecting.
