By the time the Presbyterians gather again in Detroit in 2014, Washington will likely be on board [with marriage equality], and perhaps the church will have listened and wisely discerned that arc. Ready or not, PCUSA, Melody stands ready to do the electric slide, sing along to ABBA and even take a few turns around the dance floor to Lady Gaga, but not before she stands in her robe and stole, with arms uplifted and smile beaming, and declares Nathan and his beloved to be married in the eyes of the law, the church, and most importantly, his Creator.

Presbyterians dropped barriers to ordination for LGBT people in 2010 (it was ratified in 2011), but failed to vote for marriage equality. See our blog post.
