The Presbyterian Divide
Jeff Gissing, Juicy Ecumenism
Presbyterians in Africa have made some public statements that highlight significant differences of belief and practice between the Presbyterian Church (USA) and its global partners on basic issues of the Christian life, human sexuality and abortion.
As a denomination, the PC (USA) has become increasingly open to and affirming of homosexual practice. The most recent manifestation of this came in the removal of the prohibition of practicing homosexuals from holding church office as teacher or ruling elder and deacons.
