The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted on Thursday to redefine the denominational understanding of marriage and allow its clergy to perform same-sex marriages. Here is the story from the Christian Post:

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s highest governing body voted Thursday to allow ministers to perform same-sex marriages.

Presbyterian clergy can now marry gay and lesbian couples wherever same-sex marriage is legal. …

The PCUSA’s 221st General Assembly, which is meeting in Detroit this week, also approved an amendment to its Book of Order that would change the definition of marriage from one man and one woman to "two persons."
