Conservative NYC church embraces freedoms both religious and civil
Social conservatives love to talk about gays "forcing" churches to do this, that, or that the other. The truth is that those of us on the side of equality are more than willing to let churched makes certain decisions for themselves. But another, debatably more compelling truth is that as we advance down this path towards inevitable equality, even some deeply conservative houses of worship are getting with the concept.
WNYC reports on one such situation:
The most conservative Presbyterian Church on Manhattan’s West Side is preparing to host their first gay wedding.
Historically, West End Presbyterian Church on 105th Street has not taken an actively supportive position toward LGBT people. As other Presbyterian churches in the borough have adopted an advocacy stance towards the ordination of members of the LGBT community, West End has consistently voted against it, preferring to remain in line with more traditional Presbyterian values.
