We need some Olympic track stars to catch up with some of our fellow christians if we are to unite with them.

Presbyterians won’t censure minister for performing same-sex marriages because there is no such thing
The highest court of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has ruled that a San Rafael minister did not violate church law by presiding over same-sex marriages – because the Presbyterian Church does not recognized same-sex marriage.
The Rev. Jane Spahr, 65, a lesbian activist and retired Presbyterian minister, said that she has presided at hundreds of same-sex unions since 1974. In recent years, because homosexuals have wanted marriages instead of simple unions, Spahr has been conducting marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples – at least 14 such ceremonies in the last five years.
