The Craig Fahle Show: Presbyterians Take Up Gay Marriage Issue
It has been a momentous month for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Last week brought an end to the 221st General Assembly in Detroit, where, I am grateful to report, we took huge strides toward greater equality and inclusion in the church. Over sixty percent of the General Assembly voted in favor of giving pastors the discretion to perform same-sex weddings in states where it’s legal. By an even greater margin, the assembly voted to affirm marriage as a civil contract between “two people, traditionally a man and a woman.”
At the end of a draining week, I joined Alex Patchin McNeill, executive director of More Light Presbyterians, on WDET’s the Craig Fahle Show in Detroit. I’ll write more on my time at the General Assembly and what it means to me and our church soon, but in the meantime, take a listen to our interview with Craig below. What are your thoughts on this momentous change for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)?
