RELIGION: Presbyterian Church in danger of extinction

While the Friday front-page article, headlined “Presbytery dismisses 4 churches in gay spat,” was quite informative and accurate, I take exception to the misleading, trivializing and inaccurate headline.

The problem within the Presbyterian Church (USA) centers on the fact that the General Assembly (the governing body) has governed against the will of a vast majority of the Worshiping Body for over 30 years. They are now “winning by attrition.”

In the very near future, issues of redefining marriage and questioning the Christology of Jesus Christ will also come up for a vote. Unless the PC (USA) can be reformed, it will also end up on the ash heap of history.
