The vote was 192-125? I’m thinking if it is even that close, that is just ANOTHER reason not to be a Presbyterian.
Times Dispatch: Published: February 21, 2009
“The Presbytery of the James, which represents 113 churches in central Virginia with 28,000 members, voted against a proposed amendment to the denomination’s constitution that may have allowed non-celibate gays and lesbians to become ordained pastors and elders. [What is next? Alcoholics, thieves, adulterers and pedophiles as ordained pastors and elders? What the HELL are they teaching in those dumbass churches for it to even get any votes?]
“The vote, 192-125, occurred after a brief and civil debate during a meeting at Ginter Park Presbyterian Church this afternoon.
“The amendment would remove the requirement that ministers “live either in fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman or chastity in singleness.” [Hey, swingers, come to church on Saturday night, swap spouses with the Pastor, then come for confession and forgiveness on Sunday?]

Hey, queers, get your own building and call your “church” something else, like a Mosque, or a Synagogue, will ya? Just don’t sully the name of Christ with your sinful life style. And, oh yeah, God knows I am a sinner. But I don’t go around trying to justify my sins. You and your liberal buddies do. Big difference. HUGE DIFFERENCE.
