The Sex War is Over in the PC (USA)

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

The Presbyterian General Assembly voted to change the definition of marriage from "a man and a woman" to "two people, traditionally a man and a woman." The motion passed, 71% to 29%. It will now go to the presbyteries for ratification.

This is strong evidence that the conservatives have mostly given up and moved elsewhere.

With past assemblies voting no on the issue with a 60/40 and lesser margin, doesn't this lopsided vote represent that the loyal "center" may have also departed with the staunch conservatives. For the GA to be so lopsided on this issue says to me that the "center" may have chosen to exit with the conservatives.
