NC Church To Allow Gay Ministers

A Presbyterian group representing 150 central North Carolina congregations has approved a constitutional change that could result in gays serving as ministers and elders.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Thursday that the Salem Presbytery approved the proposed change Tuesday. The proposed
amendment would remove language from the denomination's Book of
Order that prohibits gays from serving.

The change has to be approved by a majority of the 173 presbyteries of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to be effective.

Four of the five North Carolina presbyteries have voted for the amendment.

    Yes Derek, we do, not matter how bad you are. No, I do not want to be a god, I want to be with god. I think you missunderstood the reference.

    The problem, Cletus, is which 'almighty' we will appear in front of. How's your arabic?

    All the bickering and scrapping to ensure one's point. Save your defense when you appear before "the almighty". Actions speak volumes. "He" already knows your heart so there will be no time for rhetoric or lies. You can be sure that God will sort you all out into the "correct" pile.

    So you believe you are going to be like god one day? I was reading up on the orthodox beliefs and it also mentions that you are supposed to love everyone.....so are you being a bad orthodox?

    Well, Derek, we don't believe in Mennonites, mormons, protestants or any other religion other than acknowledge the Jewish. We are not poplular unless you are in Ukrain or Russia. Times have changed, belief is still the same. When you have a church that has lasted as long as this one, we are a mere twilight in time.

    I'll read up on it, OSOC. I come from a long line of Mennonites and I awoke one day and realised that times have changed. Maybe some day you will too.

    It sounds like you have no clue...what Orthodox means? Sorry, try the internet, information makes a person dangerous or informed to open minded people. I am 15th generation Orthodox.

    It sounds like you don't believe in much OSOC....

    OSOC Jul 23, 06:04 PM: How do you feel about the early priests who took it upon themselves to add things into the new testament after it had already been written?
