The tally is now 78-58.
37 presbyteries are left to vote. Of those 37, if nine vote YES, then "Don't Ask Don't Tell" is outta here and the Presbyterian Church (USA) will finally put an end to its discriminatory policy against non-married people.
CovNet reminds us that 78 yes votes is a milestone. The vote chart from 2008-2009 shows that 78 were all the yeses we received last time the PC (USA) had a chance to do the right thing. We are in much better shape this time and we need to follow the example of good folks all over the country from Carolina to Oregon.
I have four more good resources on the sidebar to help you make the case in your presbytery.
- Brian Spolarich: What Will Amendment 10A Mean If Passed?
- Katie Turpin: When Exclusions and Fears Disappear, the Fruits of the Spirit Are Planted
- Rev. Janet Edwards: It Is My Joy to Introduce You to My Uncles
- Rev. Mark Sandlin: Honestly, We Already Ordain Homosexuals
- Northern Kansas (YES last time 71-23)
- San Francisco (no last time 167-177-4)
- De Cristo (YES last time 59-48)
Life is good.
