as long as you`re in, celibate, or married, you`re OK
I was in Christchurch until today and the big news during the weekend was the Presbyterian Church deciding not to let those in a sexual relationship outside marriage train for ministry or be future leaders of the Church. Previously individual parishes were able to make a decision to let gay and de facto partners lead a church - and many have. The church called it "a way forward on homosexual people in church leadership". But why emphasise homosexuals when straight unmarried people in relationships are under the same rules?
