PCUSA votes to lift ban on gay ordination

Earlier this month, leaders of the Presbyterian Church (USA) adopted a measure that opens ordination up to partnered homosexuals. This latest vote comes after 15 years of effort to lobby PCUSA's General Assembly, which is the highest legislative body in that organization, to lift sanctions against openly gay men and women.

The assembly's moderator, Cynthia Bolbach, commented that the recent vote is just another dimension of an "ongoing conversation" within PCUSA.

New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to diversity and inclusion. As part of its mission, NYTS prepares men and women from a wide array of backgrounds for careers in ministry.
