@Kyle Walker, you're confusing organizational unity with real unity. You speak of "a future where everyone
exists in covenant and moves on in mission and ministry": but the question is, What covenant? What mission?
What ministry? There are two gospels in the PCUSA, and the are mutually exclusive. There's organizational unity,
but no real unity.
As for the exclusion of those against gay ordination being far-fetched, your words echo the very sentiment
that makes it possible: "But, let's remember, ordaining women [or now, gays] is the right thing." Well, Kyle,
that's what all the hullabuloo is about: What is right? Until we agree on that, there's no unity. Not really.
