Link 1 Jul 74 notes Two Protestant churches consider marriage equality»

gaywrites:

Two Protestant churches, the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. and the Episcopal Church, have announced they will review their policies on same-sex marriage. 

Both churches will soon hold meetings where they will discuss changing opinions leaning closer toward support for marriage equality, as well as the growing number of states where marriage equality is legal. In faiths like the Presbyterian church, though, a survey from February found 51 percent of church members still oppose same-sex marriage. 

The Presbyterian Church U.S.A. opened its General Assembly on Friday, a biennial gathering to review church policy, and next week church leaders are expected to consider their response to the establishment of civil gay marriage in six U.S. states.

Several days later, the Episcopal Church, part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, is due to hold its triennial General Convention during which it will consider establishing a ritual for blessing gay relationships.

“The landscape in the U.S. has changed radically even since our last assembly two years ago,” said Michael Adee, executive director of More Light Presbyterians, a national gay rights group. “The conversation has moved from the statehouse to the church. There’s a great awakening.”

Closing the gap, one day at a time.
