The Presbyterian Church was trending today on Twitter.
That means that for a few minutes, at least, tweets the Presbyterian Church was a hot topic.
The reason for the onslaught of tweets?
Today, representatives of the Presbyterian Church voted to allow clergy to marry same gender couples in states where it is legal. It was, by far, not a unanimous decision, but given the divisiveness of the debate about homosexuality over the last 25+ years, today’s decision was momentous.
For all the hateful things and harmful things that are too often said and done in the name of God and for all the times when religion is used to exclude rather than include, from my vantage point, today’s decision got it right.
