First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC takes Discernment vote on inclusiveness

The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC took a vote on its Discernment for inclusiveness after church today.

The vote, with three choices, dealt with whether members felt that inclusiveness on many issues in church ceremonies, including sexual orientation and gender identity, was consistent wit Christian teaching.  An affirmative vote would presumably pave the way for same-sex marriage ceremonies in the church, as well as possibly recognizing same-sex couples as parents.

I grew up in this church.  The current sanctuary building opened on Christmas Day, 1955, under Dr. Edward Pruden.
