“Presbyterian group changes marriage definition to include same-sex couples”


(CNN)The country’s largest Presbyterian denomination has changed its definition of marriage to include gay couples — though not explicitly.

Presbyterian Church (USA) approved an amendment to its constitution after most of its 171 presbyteries — or governing bodies — voted for it, PC (USA) said Tuesday.

Before, the definition said marriage was between “a man and a woman.”

The new definition says, in part, that “marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman, to love and support each other for the rest of their lives.”  [EXCERPT]  FULL POST
