I was watching the proceedings from the floor of the General Assembly of the PCUSA this morning from the comforts of my parents' home in Portland, OR, and, as God would have it, happened to watch and listen to the voting on a change in the Heidelberg Confession, which is part of our Constitution as PCUSA folk (Book of Confessions, being part of our Constitution).
The Heidelberg Confession that was added to the then-United Presbyterian Church (USA) Book of Confession includes a translation and interpretation of 1 Cor. 6:9-10 as "homosexual perversions." This language is not necessarily included in every translation. What the Overture before the General Assembly did was strike out this language.
Now the fight really begins: being sure that the Presbyteries affirm this change.
