"Congratulations PCUSA" (cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward)
The PCUSA, the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States, voted to allow their clergy to perform same-sex marriages
. This is significant!
In 1986 I was ordained into the ministry in the Presbyterian Church in Canada. So I have a personal interested in this story.
I knew when I drew this cartoon that it would make only make sense to some. This is a drawing I did, taken from a section of the Reformation Wall
in Geneva, Switzerland. These are four major figures in the history of the Reformation: William Farel, John Calvin, Theodore Beza, and John Knox. Some people are probably saying they are rolling in their graves right now.
Things develop. Is this development an separation
¬†from its roots? Or is it an unfolding
from its roots? I think it is the latter.
