An historic change will take place in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on Sunday when a measure takes effect allowing openly gay men and women in same-sex relationships to be ordained as clergy.

The change, which was approved by a majority of the church’s regional bodies in May after contentious debate in the 2.8-million member denomination, is being marked by a day of prayer at dozens of churches.

I love the difference which often appears in print between openly gay and I guess closed gay or something. It is a misnomer to think that denominations haven’t been ordaining gay men and women for a very long time and only now will begin too.

Some will say that the difference is now that they are doing so openly.
