Following years of intense debate, America’s largest Presbyterian denomination has announced a change to its constitution that allows for a more inclusive definition of marriage.
The Huffington Post reports that the US Presbyterian Church has just reached the majority it needed to approve a change in it’s constitution to include GLBT inclusive marriage.
About 71 percent of church leaders approved the change during a general assembly meeting last June. The church had been waiting for a majority of its 172 Presbyteries, or regional bodies, to approve the measure one by one. On Tuesday, this majority was reached, with 86 Presbyteries handing in decisions to support same-sex marriage within the church.
