An Irenic Gesture on Same-Sex Marriage

This week I am blogging from the Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly

As the Assembly considers a very consequential measure to change the definition of marriage to "marriage involves a unique commitment of two people," a famous liberal, John Wilkinson, proposed an amendment to add the phrase "traditionally between a man and a woman."

A noted conservative thanked Wilkinson for the amendment.

The motion passed 85% to 15%.
