Second Motion Passes Committee

Passes! And if that isn’t enough for you – the same committee just approved the amendment that will change the language in the constitution from describing marriage as being between a “man and a woman” to “two people” by a vote of 49-18. I think I will say that again: “the same committee just approved the amendment that will change the language in the constitution from describing marriage as beingbetween a “man and a woman” to “two people” by a vote of 49-18.” Next stop the floor of the General Assembly and a vote by commissioners whether or not to send the overture out to the presbyteries for ratification. Caution: The assembly can amend this and the AI, if they choose to – so there is much ahead — but there is also much accomplished.
