It Is In Print So It Must Be True

“Given these results, the controversy is unlikely to disappear. Whether current policy is maintained is less easy to predict, since voting to permit ordination of sexually active gays and lesbians—especially as deacons and elders—is possible even now, depending on the particular mix of ministers and elders at relevant General Assembly and presbytery meetings.” (Presbyterians Today, August 2006, page 7, “Go Figure” by Jack Marcum)

To my knowledge this is the first time that an “official” denominational publication has said that it is now possible to ordain sexually active gays and lesbians. The PCUSA’s Stated Clerk has yet to say that sexually active gays and lesbians can be ordained. I have not seen such a statement in any other official publication of the PCUSA. Well, now that it is in print it must be true.

This illumines Jim Berkley's principle of 'Document Creep'. It has been used by our Washinton Office and ASCWP to meet with Hezbollah, march in abortion rallies and call for gay marriage.

I remember now why I do not subscribe to that particular publication!
