PCUSA Absent in Lawsuit Against NC

We PCUSA ministers are AWOL on the latest law suit filed by the UCC against NC, in which the UCC are suing the state based upon the fact that a UCC minister who weds a same sex couple in NC could be committing a misdemeanor for such a marriage. Lately, The Alliance of Baptists, Welcoming and Affirming Baptists, and Central Conference of American Rabbis joined their suit.

However, we Presbyterians did not.

This is because we are not allowed to officiate at such a wedding, as so stated within the Constitution/Book of Order.  Until there is a change in our constitution (which could come this summer) we cannot participate in such wedding or such a lawsuit.
