To the Editor:

The Presbyterian Church USA has opened the door for ordaining gay ministers, deacons and elders. The church’s constitution used to have a requirement for its leaders to “live either in fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman or chastity in singleness.” However, recently the PCUSA has dropped that stipulation and now nebulously requires church leaders “submit joyfully to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in all aspects of life”–whatever that means!

In doing this the PCUSA contradicts the Bible’s clear teaching that marriage is between one man and one woman: i.e. Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve (Genesis 2:24), its own definition of marriage in its worship book as being between one man and one woman and okays sex outside of marriage. If that is so, then is it okay for heterosexuals, as well. Right?

What is next? Changing the Ten Commandments to the Ten Suggestions?
