Not Guilty!

“Nine judges for the Presbyterian Church (USA) unanimously ruled today that a Pittsburgh minister was not guilty of violating Scripture or church law when she performed a “purported marriage ceremony” between two women in 2005. The court, meeting on the North Side in the second day of a trial for the Rev. Janet Edwards, ruled that the constitutions of the church and the state of Pennsylvania define marriage as an act between a man and a woman. Therefore, judges said, the minister could not have done what she was accused of doing.” [Post-Gazette]
