Members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) have voted to change the definition of marriage to include same-gender marriage.  The president of the Presbyterian Lay Committee, Carmen Fowler LaBerge, says she is deeply grieved. "I view this as a demonstration of the denomination's complete accommodation to the prevailing winds of culture and a direct repudiation of the scriptures of both the Old and New Testament," she tells OneNewsNow. The PCUSA is now the largest Protestant group to allow same-gender marriage church wide. The new definition takes effect June 21.Many conservatives have left the PCUSA in recent years, LaBerge says, so those who remain, and have been voting at the presbytery meetings, are more liberal than they have been in the past.
