Presbyterians opposed to gay clergy split from the church on Thursday, announcing in Orlando a new denomination called the Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians.

While the Presbyterian Church (USA) has removed barriers to ordination based on sexual orientation, there are those who cannot live with such changes and feel they must form a denomination that explicitly excludes LGBT people.
